Along with that, try to score continuously as this will bring your opponent in pressure, and as a result, they will start losing their grip on the match.
Madden NFL’s meta for defensive gameplay is to make your defense so secure that no one can pass it easily. If you have become successful in establishing a strong defense, your opponent will not know what to do against it. Along with that do not try to stop runs for losses.
