3 Plays That Destroy Cover 4 Drop Defenses In Madden 21

After the most recent patch cover 3 and cover 2 are both really easy to beat so many people are calling mostly man to man or cover 4 drop defenses in Madden 21.

In today’s Madden School Film Room, we are going over 3 plays that destroy cover 4 drop.

Check them out below!

Playbook: Baltimore Ravens

Formation: Singleback Deuce Close

Play: PA X Post Cross

Setup:

  1. Make sure you are on the left hash mark
  2. Put the B/circle receiver on a curl route
  3. Double team the outside most rusher on the right

Reads:

  1. Your primary read on this play is the X/square receiver deep against cover 4 defenses.

Overview: This play does a great job of beating cover 4 defenses over the top.

Playbook: Green Bay Packers

Formation: Gun Trey Y-Flex

Play: Fade Smash

Setup:

  1. Make sure you are on the right hash mark
  2. Put your tight end on a slant route
  3. Put your Y/triangle receiver on a streak
  4. Put your X/square receiver on a slant route
  5. Smart route the B/circle receiver
  6. (Optional) Block your running back

Reads:

  1. The B/circle receiver should get open deep. Lead pass to the right sideline

Overview: This is a shot play if you think your opponent is going to be in a cover 4 defense.

Playbook: Green Bay Packers

Formation: Gun Tight Offset TE

Play: PA Seams

Setup:

  1. Use the HB1 package before you call this play
  2. Make sure you are on the left hash mark
  3. Hot route the Y/triangle receiver to a hitch route or a drag route
  4. Hot route the X/square receiver to a slant route
  5. (Optional) Hot route the B/circle receiver to a fade route

Reads:

  1. The primary read on this play is the A/X receiver deep. Lead pass to the left

Overview: By using the HB1 package, we get 4 wide receivers on the field instead of 3 wide receivers and 1 tight end. That allows a wide receiver to be in the tight end spot which really helps this play work.
