Cover 3 is one of the most common defenses in Madden 17.  Today we are going over a play that gets our running back open for 20-30 yards against cover 3 defenses.

Check it out below.

Playbook: Detroit Lions

Formation: Gun Spread Y-flex

Play: PA Under

Setup:

  1. Put the Y/triangle receiver on a streak route
  2. Motion the Y/triangle receiver over to the other side
  3. Put the Rb/R1 receiver on a wheel route

Reads:

  1. The first read is Rb/R1 out of the backfield
  2. The second read is the X/square receiver on the in route

Overview: This is a great play if your opponent runs a lot of cover 3. You must mix in other plays from this formation in order for it to be effective.
