Today we are going over an easy concept that beats cover 3 defenses in Madden 16 for over 20 yards at a time.

You can check out the full video breakdown and setup below.

Madden 16 Cover 3 Beater: Gun Spread - Post Flags

Playbook: New York Giants

Formation: Gun Spread

Play: Post Flags


  1. Hot route your A/X slot receiver to a fade route
  2. Hot route your running back to a swing to the right
  3. Hot route one of your receivers on the left to a drag route
  4. Motion your A/X receiver a step over to the left and then snap the ball.


  1. Your primary read on this play is your B/circle receiver
  2. If he is covered for whatever reason, look to your receiver on the drag route

Overview: This play destroys cover 3 defense and attacks the sideline instead of the middle of the field.  Use this when you are facing an opponent who likes to sit in cover 3 all game.
