This includes the following:

  • Fixed an issue where contain players pushed the inside gap instead of their assigned outside gap with their pass rush moves.
  • Players without Strip Specialist will no longer cause fumbles on QBs standing in the pocket with normal sack animations in Competitive mode.
  • Fixed a motion issue where defenders would leave an open receiver in Nickel, Dime, and Dollar defenses facing Twins/Slot formation
  • Defenders will better cover PA plays across several bug fixes
  • Fixed tackling animations not working vs Juke and Jurdle moves
  • Fixed a logic when QB throwing arm is hit, preventing passes and forcing fumbles or tucking the ball
