A brand new feature called Target Passing makes it into Madden 18. For the first time ever, no longer are you tied to throwing at your open wide receiver. Throw to who you want, in the exact spot on the field giving ultimate control over where the ball is thrown. This similar to Quarterback Club’s passing attack where you could throw to the spot and not the WR. In the NFL top QBs don’t always “see” the WR open and then throw it they anticipate him breaking open and deliver the ball before his break. There are passing windows in each zone and it’s up to the QB to deliver the ball into those windows and for the WR to be there, Target Passing looks to replicate this.

With Coverage Assignments you can now assign you BEST Cornerback to the offense’s best WR and he will shadow him the entire game! One of the MOST requested features has been brought back for Madden 18. Matchup your to cover corner on the offense’s best wide receiver or tight end

With Coach Adjustments you will be able to customize the AI to fit your game plan and make situational changes to your strategy on the fly as the game demands it. This new feature will be similar to the old NCAA strategy changes on the fly where you could have your players focus on one aspect of the game that gave you pluses or minuses depending on what you chose. When tackling do your guys go for the ball more and risk giving up a big play? Offensively have your line hold their blocks longer with the increased risk of a holding penalty called. The coaching adjustments will add another level of strategy on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
