Players discovered and shared a strange and exciting malfunction that showed the impossible overtime in the Madden NFL 21 simulation game. The NFL is currently considering changing its overtime rules again. A few years ago, the rules were changed from the standard form of sudden death to allow every team to get at least one chance to catch the ball, as long as neither team scores. However, it seems that in Madden NFL 21, the overtime setting has changed dramatically.
Madden NFL players on Reddit noticed that the performance in the game’s franchise mode is quite ridiculous. Between each week’s games, players can see the latest situation in the rest of the league. A particular match produced exciting results, which may be some malfunction caused by the newest update of Madden NFL 21.
Reddit user u/Tastychinookie posted a theme from the latest experience of r/Madden, with content similar to Madden NFL 21. Quite ridiculously, the 9th week between the Cardinals and Dolphins ended in overtime, and Arizona defeated Miami 34-7. According to the NFL and Madden NFL’s current overtime rule format, the final score will be impossible in overtime.
Although the relatively popular Madden NFL 21 has a lot of hope for fans to improve, it is not a stupid overtime problem. Even the newly proposed NFL overtime rules do not allow 34-7 points. According to the current overtime rules, if a game’s overtime score is 7 to 7, the highest score maybe 10 to 16.
Fans have high hopes for Madden NFL 22, including a more powerful franchise model, more features of Madden Ultimate Team, a real upgrade to the next generation, and so on. Although minor issues such as overtime issues may seem trivial, they add up and are part of a long list of pain points for fans of the series.
EA has promised that Madden NFL 22 will change the franchise model. It announced this news before the release of Madden NFL 21. In this way, the Madden NFL works similarly to the NFL itself. The NFL usually promises to make changes in the next few years, and fans believe that the NFL can be implemented before the upcoming season. Fans are eager to see the Madden series continue to improve, which means everything from modes with reasonable enhancements to glitches being processed.
