How do I stop the screen?

#1usmovers_02Posted 9/16/2013 12:24:09 PM
In Madden 13 I could identify a high probability screen pass based on the formation. That seems to be completely gone in Madden 25 and it's pretty much unstoppable in man defense which is what I primarily use. So in Madden 25 how do I identify a potential screen pass and stop it?

Thanks in advance.

I haven't played Madden 25, but I remember in previous versions that during a screen pass, the offensive line men just stand around for a second, then all run to the left or right with the running back. If you control the guy who's in man with the RB and follow him, you can get an easy pick 6 or tackle him for a loss.

I been using Cover 2 zone sink and it stops it better than anything else.

Offensive line just stand there for a second then flare out to the flats. HB just stands there too. I always use the MLB/OLB so I see it coming almost every time.

Cover 1 man to man defense works for me.

So basically I won't know if it's a screen until the play starts (thats fine) and pretty much the only effective way to stop it is watch the linemen and control the LB? Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot.

DE contain to the screen side.

If screen is going left, contain the RDE, if its going right, the LDE

Shuts it down 99.99999% of the time. Half those times it'll be intercepted by the DE

Best way to stop it is always assume it's the next play. The cpu runs screens at least twice a game, and if you're expecting it, it's an easy interception or tackle for loss. Just take control of a blitzing lineman and spy the running back.

Is the direction of the screen dependent upon the where the RB lines up?

Almost always, and 99% of cpu screens are from the shotgun with 1 back
