In this Madden 18 Tip, Duke breaks down the best short yardage defense and runs in the game!

Short yardage situations are a critical part of Madden that are often ignored or not really focused on. In this video, I will breakdown a defense that will stop every popular short yardage run in the game and also give you my favorite short yardage plays to use on offense.

Here is the setup to my killer short yardage defense I break down in the video:

34 Odd- Tampa 2

  1. Base align and press
  2. Pinch DL down
  3. Crash DL down
  4. Run commit down
  5. User the weak side safety

These situations often can dictate who wins or losses the game so be sure to implement these into your game!
