How to Beat the Eagles in Madden NFL 12

What team do you take online? Many of you probably responded with the Eagles, and that's a wise choice; they are the best team in Madden NFL 12. Those of you who don't play with the Eagles are probably wondering how best to stop them from completely dominating. The Madden team understands where you're coming from and is here to help.

In their latest Tips and Tricks video, the Madden team tells you how contain the Eagles. Their suggested game plan is broken into three parts.

Part 1: choose a proper counter team. There are certain teams that work well against the Eagles, number one being the Packers. But, as long as you're confident in your team, you can hold your own.

Part 2: contain Michael Vick. The Eagles' quarterback is fast and has great receivers — he's a major threat. Use the Madden team's suggested tactics to keep Vick from chilling in the pocket, and force him to lose his accuracy under pressure.

Part 3: avoid the brutal defensive front and corners. The Madden team suggests focusing on wide spreads to open up the field and running plays out of the shotgun to give you more time.

If any armchair coach could completely shut down the Eagles, they wouldn't be the best team in Madden NFL 12, would they? But, with the lessons from the Madden team, you have a chance at beating them. Good luck!

Madden NFL 12 has "Everything You See On Sunday," and brings an entirely new meaning to the motto, "If it's in the game, it's in the game." The newest title in the Madden series is the most realistic NFL action to date.
