How to Strip the Ball
When you’re about to make a tackle, hit the R1 / RB button. Your athlete will swipe or poke at the ball, but will also have a looser grip on the player. Good running backs should be able to break tackles or hold onto the ball tighter.
Now, that you know how to strip the ball, you should try showboating when you’re about to score. You may not want to do it during a matchmaking game. The competitive scene is vibrant and has quite a few players.
Although the exact number of players is uncertain, it seems there’s approximately 8 million Madden 21 players spread across the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
