When you are on defense, choose the plays that use all three defensive linemen across the frontline. For example, select the "MLB Blitz" play from the "Stop Run" or "Short Pass" playbook. Once the screen switches from playbook view to field view, you will see that you have all three defensive linemen across the front of the other team's offense, and that directly behind your defensive line is your linebacker. Use this player to run straight up between your defensive linemen that is in the middle of the line and another one of your linemen either on the right or left, depending on the way that the play and QB moves. Once the ball is snapped, notice that it only takes a second or two to sack the QB, which is the amount of time it takes for the CU-controlled QB to throw the ball. This strategy not only works with this play (MLB Blitz) but with any defensive play that allows for three defensive linemen to line up across the front line with a linebacker directly behind the defensive line. This strategy can stop some of the running plays and is excellent for stopping reverses. If you get blocked, it will free up one of your defensive linemen and he will get to the QB faster.
