How To Beat Cover 1 Press in Madden 19

Cover 1 is a much more popular defense in Madden 19 than it has ever been before.

If we see our opponent in cover 1 press or cover 0 press, we know that we will have an instant touchdown.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 19: Gun Doubles - Under Seams

Playbook: New England Patriots

Formation: Gun Doubles

Play: Under Seams


  1. You can do any hot routes you want, just make sure to keep the B/circle receiver on his route.


  1. Against Cover 1 Press, Cover 0 Press, or Cover 3 Press your B/circle receiver should get wide open.

Description: This play destroys any press cover 1 and also cover 2 man. Since the outside WR doesn’t get jammed, he flies by the outside CB, allowing you to hit him for a massive gain consistently. Mix this in with hot routes to other wide receivers and this play can dominate any man coverage in the game.

Let’s take a closer look at how this play works.

This is how the play art looks. We should be focusing on our receiver on the right side of the screen.

Right when the ball is snapped, the cornerback will not jam him at the line of scrimmage.

That allows our wide receiver to run right by the best corner in the game.

We throw it to him for an easy touchdown.
