Nickel 3-3-5 Odd Cover 4 Drop Disengage Blitz

This is the blitz a lot of players are currently using in Madden ’21, the only difference is they’re using it in Nickel Normal; but, the blitz still works the same in 3–3–5 Odd.

The setup is as follows:

  • Crash the Defensive Line down
  • Put your MLB into a QB contain
  • Pinch your entire defense
  • Put your Right of Screen LB into a Hard Flat or any zone
  • Put your Left of Screen LB into a Blitz
  • Rush with the ROLB toward the LT
  • As you’re rushing, push in R3 to send your QB spy

(If you don’t understand how to make these adjustments, watch the above video for an explanation).

This is one of the better blitzes in the game, as it gives you great defensive pass coverage, and the blitz comes through quite often.

Keep in mind, no blitz will work 100% of the time. Your opponent can make adjustments to alter the effectiveness of this blitz, which is why you should mix this blitz in with other coverages, as well as other plays in the same formation; but, disguised as the blitz.
