As usual, summer has brought with a new Madden to look forward to. But in all honesty, those hoping for major changes will be disappointed to learn that this year has been pretty conservative. Many of the features and modes are unchanged, and veterans of the series will find all the control systems pretty much identical. That includes how to kneel the ball in Madden 21, which is performed by using the same input as the last game.
How to Kneel the Ball in Madden 21
Kneeling the ball in Madden 21 is performed by accessing the clock management section of special teams. There you’ll find a bunch of special plays that are all about managing in-game time, including spiking the football, fake spiking, and kneeling the ball. Obviously, you’ll want to select the last one.
Kneeling the ball is an important play that should be your go-to if you’re wanting to safely run the clock down. While it’s probably less of a hassle to just hand the ball off and have one of your players conservatively run forward gain a few yards, you’re still running the risk of losing possession via a fumble.
Instead, a kneel ensures that nothing can really go wrong as you tick the clock down those precious few seconds — though if you’re playing someone online then be prepared for them to rage!
