When it comes to running your offense in the Madden 20 game, there are plenty of options. That includes using the versatility of a quarterback who can complete passes or even gain some yards on the ground himself. Some of the best scrambling QBs in the game include Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, and Lamar Jackson. There are also other QBs who can run but may not be quite as mobile. They’ll need to be able to avoid contact from the defense. Here are the details on how to slide on Madden 20 with your quarterback.

When to slide with a quarterback in the game

It’s a very basic aspect of the game, but one that needs to be available when you’re trying to pick up yards with the quarterback. As seen in NFL games, sometimes the QB has no available passing options but will see an opening. Therefore they can try to take off to get some yards and maybe even get that necessary first down.

However, if a quarterback simply goes straight at the defenders, that can be dangerous. That’s because the QB can end up getting hit hard and possibly lose the ball to the opponents. There’s also the possibility of an injury, so the last thing you want is to leave your offensive star prone to a mishap. That’s why you’ll normally see a QB trying to get out of bounds or sliding on the field to down the ball. Let’s look at how to slide on Madden 20 to avoid those dangerous possibilities.

How to slide on Madden 20 game with the QB

When it comes to how to slide on Madden 20, it’s quite simple. It’s probably best to go into full practice mode. You can try this with any team and their quarterback. See the Madden QB ratings here if you want a certain type of quarterback to try.

Choose a passing play to practice but instead of throwing the pass, start running with your QB down the field. You’ll want to make sure there’s some sort of opening for this if you’re practicing against a defense. In our example, we’re practicing with the Seattle Seahawks against the Minnesota Vikings and taking off towards the left side of the field with Russell Wilson.


Press “X” on your PS4 controller (“A” on Xbox One) to snap the ball. To run with the quarterback, use the controller’s left stick to direct your player. Press it forward (up) to move down the field. Also, hold down the right bumper on the control to accelerate your quarterback. Run down the field a bit while avoiding defenders.

Once you’ve advanced the QB past the line of scrimmage, let off the right bumper on the control. To slide, simply press “Square” button on your PlayStation 4 controller, or “X” on the Xbox One controller. The quarterback will slide forward.

If you don’t let off that right bumper, it will cause your player to dive forward instead. It’s best to practice this against a defense and as you’re moving towards a defending player or as they’re coming at you. That will get you used to seeing which situations to use this in for actual Madden games.
