In today’s free Madden 23 tip, we are going over another really easy way to beat any sort of man to man blitz scheme in Madden 23 by using a specific type of RPO play.
Check out the full breakdown below!
Playbook: Kansas City Chiefs
Formation: Gun Deuce Close
Play: RPO Read Flat Wheel
Setup: None required
- Your first read is the tight end on the wheel route. If he is open, throw it
- If he is covered, look to the tight end on the flat route who should be open most of the time
Overview: This RPO play destroys any sort of Cover 0 or Cover 1 man to man defense as long as you make your reads properly.
Pro Tip: On RPOs you will want to get the pass out as fast as possible to avoid an ineligible receiver downfield penalty.
Let’s take a closer at how this should work.
This is how the play art should look before you snap the ball.
Both safeties are in man coverage on our tight ends which means we know this play will work.
Immediately after we snap the ball, we can see that the safeties are cheating in a little to stop the run so we our tight end on the wheel route has a lot of open space.
We make the catch for about 6 yards but no defend is in a position to make a tackle.
Because we have a tight end who has good speed, we are able to beat the defenders to the end zone for a touchdown.
