If Offense is Frodo, then Defense is Sam in Madden Mobile 17. It’s there because it has to be, because offense needs something in front of it. This is unfortunate, since even Gandalf would say, “Defense wins championships”.
Playing defense is unnecessary for league, tournament and rivalry modes. It is required, however, for Season and some live events such as Domination.
So which play should I run? Which formation? 3-4, 4-3, Dime or Nickel?
There really is no strategy here. The only defensive play you need in Madden Mobile 17 is the 3-4 Pinch.
Also, check out my other Madden Mobile posts:
Select the ROLB (Anthony Barr in the screenshot). It doesn’t matter which formation the offense is in or which down. Place him a couple yards from the left tackle. Pull down on the control so that he’s running in place. He won’t cross the line of scrimmage until after the ball is snapped.
Once the play starts, move him around the tackle and then toward the QB. It will very often result in a sack or user tackle. There’s also a high chance the QB will make a bad throw resulting in incompletions and interceptions.
That’s it. That’s all you need to know. It’ll help you win season games, live events, and complete achievements.
And get you that precious ring.
