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


  1. Put your tight end on a slant
  2. Block your running back


  1. Your primary read is always your B/circle receiver on the post route
  2. 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.
