Duke breaks down the best red zone defense in Madden 18 in this Madden Tip!

Play: 34 Odd- Tampa 2

Playbooks: ANY 34 Based Playbook PLUS NE and Multiple


  1. Base align
  2. Pinch DL
  3. Spread LB’ers
  4. Blitz all LB’ers globally
  5. Spy the LILB (right of screen) and user the RILB (left of screen) in coverage
  6. Put both safeties into a hook zone

Final Thoughts:

This defense will stop the run and the glitch low balls people like to do in the red zone. This defense should be used once the offense gets to around the 10 or closer. Don’t use it if they are at like the 20 or 15 because the safeties in the hook zones can get beat deep.
