Beating Cover 2 Defense in Madden 13

Beating Cover 2 Defense in Madden 13

Another common defense that you will encounter in Madden 13 is the cover 2.  A cover 2 defense has both safeties in deep (blue) zones.  In today’s tip we are going over a simple way of beating this defense for 20-30 yard gains every time.  The concept is simple, just call a play with 2 wide receivers on one side of the field and hot route them both to streak routes.  We explain it in detail in the video below.

The key to making this play work is lead passing away from the safeties.  If you have any questions regarding this concept, leave them in the comments section.

      You won;t have that kind of time and if you do it will be in a long down situation but even then the defense will likely play cover 3/4.
      Only works if you are setting it up with short passes.

    You need to be more specific. This won’t work against MAN cover 2 right? Just Cover 2 ZONE.

      I would run a 2 man under and put my defensive end thats on the strong side in a purple zone. thats how i beat z spot. you will have man coverage and a second defender there. You may want to spread your line as well. Hop this worked for you. If not we can lab.
