One of the most common requests that we receive at Madden-School.com this year is for ways to beat a 2 man under defense in this year’s game. For those of you who don’t know, a 2 man under defense just means that the defense is in man to man coverage with both safeties in deep (dark blue) zones. We dove into the New England Patriots playbook and came out with a great way of beating the 2 man under defense.
Playbook: New England Patriots
Formation: Gun Ace Wing TE
Play: PA Pats Corner
- Hot route your running back to block
- Your primary read on this play is your square/X receiver
- If he is covered, both your slot receiver and tight end should be open against 2 man under
Madden-School.com Pro Tip: This play works best if you use a receiver who has good speed and route running as the square/X receiver.
