Facing a no-huddle offense?  Hurry-up offenses catch unprepared Madden players off guard. That’s a big reason Madden players use it so often.  If an opponent can capitalize on indecision, they will use no-huddle to their advantage.  

Defending no-huddle is a necessary skill for Madden o­nline and league play alike just to keep the game fun. Like anything else, preparation is the best defense.  Don't be baffled by bypassed play selection screens. Develop a simple plan to keep opponent’s hurry up-offense off balance.

Long ago, Randall Cunningham demonstrated how a fast quarterback with an solid arm could change the game of football.  Madden NFL 2004's cover athlete Michael Vick took scrambling quarterbacks mainstream.  Because of the threats scrambling quarterbacks presented in Madden NFL 2004, two defensive assignments were added to Madden NFL 2005.  Ever since, speed is a premium at the quarterback position for Madden players and NFL organizations. You'll need tools in your game plan to neutralize fast passers.

They often say football is an emotional game.  The proverbial "they" never thought of Madden when they coined that phrase, but it couldn't be more correct.  Because Madden generates high levels of emotion, some players act on those emotions without thinking of the consequences.  Madden has accounted for more than it's fair share of broken controllers, fist fights, and in extreme cases, crime. Results vary.  But what happens when those claiming to be friends do the most harm? 

This episode features the TNT713's Panthers fighting against dennis2765's Cowboys in a battle that goes down to the very last play.  Tightly contested for the duration, be sure to watch this one for the dramatic and surprising ending.

Small decisions matter, especially on special teams.  On kickoffs it is sometimes better to take a knee than attempt to run it back.  In recent memory getting the ball to the 20-yard line was enough to justify the risk of poor field position, but the NFL changed the rule for kickoffs for the 2016 season.  Now, a touchback grants the receiving team possession at the 25-yard line instead of the 20. 

When things go bad, they can go very bad.  This episode of GameFilm features XxCALI_BOY_619xX's Chargers against TNT713's Panthers in a game for the ages.  Hit with a rash of mistakes early that put the Panthers in a deep hole, TNT battles back and takes the game to the wire.  Check out this episode for the full game.
