Madden 24: How to block a field goal

Like in the previous versions of the game, blocking field goals can be challenging in Madden 24. You can select any field goal block play and pick the player on either the far left or far right. They have a chance to get the kicker before their teammates from the special team.

If you manage to get past your defender, dive in the exact moment when a kicker shoots the ball. You can do this by pressing the Square button on PS and X on Xbox. Naturally, the timing plays a vital role. In case you’re a bit late, you can forget about blocking a field goal. Bear in mind that diving into a kicker will result in a penalty.

  • Dive by hitting the X button on Xbox or the Square button on PlayStation
