  2. If it is any other zone defense, look to your running back on the wheel route
  3. Against man to man defense, read between your A/X receiver on the slant route and the X/square receiver on the deep in route

This is how the final play art should look. Make sure you are on the left hash mark.

Right away we can see that our opponent is in a Cover 2 zone defense by peeking at the safety and corner back on the right side of the field. Lead pass up and to the sideline.
