How to Block a Field Goal in Madden 19
Over the years, EA Sports has made it easier for players to block field goals in its annual sports title. With the implementation of a more realistic player motion in Madden 19, you have more player responsiveness and better animation quality to gauge the right timing to jump in and block the opposing team’s field goal.
Firstly, utilize a block play of your preference and select your chosen open defender to rush in for the block. Timing your movement right before the snap is crucial to get past the line of scrimmage and foil the enemy team’s field goal attempt.
Once you’re past the line of scrimmage, you can choose to either dive or jump to block the field goal. Jumping is better for longer distance field goals while diving is better for shorter distances. Whether you plan on jumping or diving, make sure to perform the defensive maneuver just as the kicker starts his animation to kick the ball. Jumping too late or too early will give your opponent a clear shot at the goal, so make sure to time it carefully.
Be sure to manage your spacing from the kicker to avoid roughing the kicker and incurring a penalty. Roughing the kicker is a personal foul and will cost you 15 yards in Madden 19.
If you’re having difficulty with your timing, you can practice as much as you want through Madden 19’s practice mode. To start practicing, simply set your block play and toggle the enemy team’s playbook and set them to use a field goal. Repeat the play as many time as you want until you nail the timing.
So, that’s basically how you block a field goal in Madden 19 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to check out our comprehensive wiki.
