Madden NFL 25 - Top 5 Defensive Ends

Published 11 months, 2 weeks ago by ZFarls & SGibs

Defensive ends make the highlight reel for getting after the QB and bringing him down for a sack. However, a truly dominant defensive end is one who causes the offense nightmares all week leading up to the game. The opposing coach knows he must keep extra players in to block and can’t run at their side, which gives the DE’s team a huge advantage. There are a few different types of moves that defensive ends use to try to beat the offensive linemen. Faster, lighter players might go with a finesse move to try to run right past the offensive linemen, while other ends will go with a power move and try and push the linemen back. All great players change up their style of moves to keep the offensive linemen on their heels! Here are some players who can help you get to the QB and force those big third down stops!
