Madden School Unlimited

Playbook: Denver Broncos

Formation: Gun Empty Base Flex

Play: Middle Hi Lo


  1. Hot route your X/square running back to a drag route
  2. Hot route your A/X tight end to a drag route
  3. Smart route your RB/R1 receiver


  1. Your first read is always the Y/triangle receiver deep
  2. If he is covered, look to your tight end on the drag
  3. Then look to your RB/R1 receiver on the quick post route
  4. Your final read is the X/square running back on the drag to the other side

Overview: This play can be incredibly hard to stop if your opponent refuses to get out of man to man coverage. We have 4 really good options all getting open at different times.

Here is a link to the low ball curl route concept we mentioned in the video.

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

This is how the final play art should look right before you snap the ball.

We can see right away that our Y/triangle receiver is open along the sideline and we also have our RB/R1 receiver getting open in the middle of the field.

We throw it to the Y/triangle receiver and get an easy 30 yard gain.
