How to QB Slide in Madden 21 Xbox

First, you'll want to make sure you're past the line of scrimmage. Of course, you'll also need to be directly controlling the quarterback. From here, it's as simple as pressing the X button. You'll slide feet first and end the play. This is useful to end plays without giving the ball over. If you're on PS4, you press Square.

If you find that the defense is too strong, you might want to give up the play to avoid penalties or being sacked.

You'll also want to make sure you don't hold X. Holding X will cause your quarterback to dive headfirst, which could lead to fumbles or injuries.

You can slide with other ball carriers, too. Playing as the wide receiver or running back requires you to hold both RT and LT, and then pressing X. You'll use this like how you would with a quarterback, ending the play so you don't give the ball over. On PS4, press the corresponding R2 and L2.
