In today’s free Madden 17 tip, we are discussing a way to beat cover 2 defenses in Madden 17.

You can check out our full breakdown below.

Playbook: Carolina Panthers

Formation: Gun Y-Trips TE Slot

Play: Four Verticals

Setup:

  1. Put the X/Square on a slant route
  2. Motion in the RB/R1 receiver and hike it before he gets to the line

Reads:

  1. The first read on the play is the RB/R1 receiver deep over the middle
  2. If this read is not there you have the X/Square receiver on the slant route
  3. Also, if these two reads fail check it down to the running back out of the backfield

Overview: This is not an every down play, however it can be a game changing play when you go to it during the right time. It will be most effective if sprinkled in once or twice a game.

You have three main reads on the play and if the opponent is in a cover 2 the RB/R1 receiver will usually result in a touchdown.
