M17 Indy Nickel 245

Nickel 245 is not exactly the best blitzing formation in Madden 17, however, it does provide you with a variety of coverages and some decent B Gap pressure to mix in. 245 can be extremely effective if ran correctly, especially from a coverage perspective!

Coverage Plays

  1. Cover 2 Buster
  2. Cover 3 Buzz Match
  3. Cover 3 Mable
  4. Cover 2 Carry
  5. Cover 9 Show 2

All of these plays can be run stock and can generate outside pressure if needed!!
