What is the run and how do you stop it in Madden 24?

The run, in Madden 24, is an offensive play in which the offense attempts to advance the ball by running with the ball to advance to the end zone. There are many different types of run plays and you need to use the right defensive play and use your defenders effectively. Here are some ways to stop the run;


Using a run-stuffing formation: These formations typically have a lot of defenders in the box, which makes it difficult for the offense to run the ball.


Using base align and press coverage: Base Aligning helps clog up the running lanes whereas pressing your coverage will also help to prevent the offense from getting open receivers. Which will make the offense run the ball more.


Using Man Coverage: This allows you to match up your defenders with the offensive players. It can disrupt the offensive flow and make it harder to run with the ball effectively.


Manually controlling a defensive end or the middle linebacker: Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands and your best bet is to manually control the defense. Manual control is a way better option for those who know how to play defense as you can make plays that the AI would not be able to make.


Sometimes other things like paying attention to the offensive formation, being patient, and watching the pre-snap movement of the offensive players also help.
