In today’s free Madden 15 strategy, we are going over a really effective passing play found in the New England Patriots playbook. This play works well against both man and zone defenses.
This video was made much earlier in the year but is worth revisiting because of how effective it can be. If you are looking for a consistent money play that doesn’t feel like cheese, this is for you.
Note: This is the type of very basic play that can be effective in future games like Madden 16 as well.
We have the full analysis and written breakdown below.
Playbook: New England Patriots
Formation: Gun Pats Wing Trips
Play: Pats Slot Out
- Put your tight end on a slant
- Block your running back
- Your primary read is always your B/circle receiver on the post route
- Against man defense, your tight end should be wide open as well
Overview: This is a great play to call on 3rd and 10 or a little longer. It should get you around 15 yards if done correctly.
In custom playbooks, the play can be found in the Shotgun U Trips Wk formation and the play is called Slot Out.
50% of the plays arent there in the right formation under custom playbook on a ps4.. was thinking about buying the e book but takes a long time to actually search and find the play
50% of what plays? There is only 1 play covered in this post. And with ebooks, all of the plays are found in a singular playbook so if you want to use a custom playbook, it is really easy to just use a specific base playbook and then add in plays when you want
I’m trying to add this play to my custom playbook but can’t find it in any of the trips formations??? Where is it and what’s the changed name ??
In custom playbook, the formation is called Shotgun U Trips Wk. If ever you aren’t sure where to find a formation in the custom playbook, just find what teams playbook we mention in the post, then create a custom playbook with their base playbook and just search through their formations. It takes about a minute to find what the formation is called.
You do a great job breaking things down and I very often use not only your specific plays, but their concepts to kickstart parts of my offense I hadn’t considered before. I wanted to suggest one mini scheme addition to this play I’ve been using to really wreck guys online, same setup for the TE except use the HB screen out of the formation. In man the TE still gets ridiculously open vs CPU defenders but more importantly he acts as an amazing decoy to User players in the middle, which allows the running back to run free.
Thanks Brian! And thank you for the suggestion
