With man coverage being so horrible in this year’s game many of the top players are playing a lot more zone coverage. There are a lot of zone beaters and this is one of my favorites. However, I would not suggest doing this play more than twice a game because if people know its coming it may get intercepted. So I hope you enjoy this tip, and find a way to utilize it into your scheme. If used correctly it can be a game changer.
In today’s free Madden strategy, TDBarrett is going over one way to absolutely destroy cover 3 zone defenses in Madden NFL 15.
It utilizes route swapping to change the play, causing some confusion on defense. Let’s take a look at how it all works.
Playbook: Green Bay Packers
Formation: Gun Trips Y Iso
Play: Mesh Dig
- Put a TE or RB (whoever is the best combination of speed and catching) and sub him in to the far left Wide Receiver.
- Once lined up hit square/X and L2/LB. This will cause the outside receiver to take the middle receivers route.
- Snap the ball
- Wait tell he makes the initial cut up and throw it.
Overview: Don’t overuse this play, but it is nice to know you have it when you are playing someone who sits in Cover 3 all game.
