Madden 16 Money Play: Gun Split Close - WR Corner

Playbook: Indianapolis Colts

Formation: Gun Split Close

Play: WR Corner


  1. Put the X/square receiver on a drag route.


  1. The first read is the B/circle receiver on the corner route.
  2. Next, the X/square receiver on a drag route.
  3. Lastly, the tight end out of the backfield to the flats.

Overview: This play is effective against zone, because the A/X route is angled and makes the safeties commit to him. The tight end out of the backfield and the drag across the middle, brings all the zones up. This leaves the B/circle receiver wide open to the corner for a big gain. If they user this just simply check it down to the drag route or tight end.

Let’s take a look at this play in more detail.
