How to improve your match coverage in Madden 23?
In this guide, we will show you how to improve your match coverage in Madden 23 by adjusting the positional placement of your safeties. When vertical attacking threats enter the area, we will demonstrate how to match coverage converts from zone to man-to-man and how adjusting your safety’s position can help you stay stickier to the route and prevent free-form throws over the top.
Step 1: Set Up Your Coverage
To start, you’ll want to ensure that your match coverage is on the baseline, though you can also disguise your coverage if you choose. If you’re playing EA’s Madden, call quarters.
Step 2: Adjust Your Safety Position
When facing a bunch of meta, you’ll want to adjust your safety position to squeeze the gap between him and the receiver. The inside quarter matches the number two receiver when you’re in the spread. The safety will convert to man-to-man coverage when the corner route hits the landmark (7 yards).
When adjusting the safety’s position, you’ll want to move him down a step or two from the typical ball spot on the 40½ yard line to about nine yards. This will help him stay stickier to the route and prevent free-form throws over the top.
Step 3: Practice The Technique
To practice this technique, snap the ball and watch your safety convert to man-to-man closer to the route. You should be able to see the gap between him and the receiver close, allowing him to stay stickier to the route and make a better play on the ball.
By adjusting your safety’s position in match coverage, you’ll be able to stay stickier to the route and prevent free-form throws over the top. This simple technique can help shut down some of the most popular metals in competitive Madden game.
