Madden 17 Pass Tips: Gun Snugs Flip – Mesh

New Madden School pro gamer Hop is making his Madden 17 debut for us.  This passing play destroys both man to man coverage and zone coverage.  You have 3 really nice options that you can throw to.

The full breakdown can be seen below.

Madden 17 Passing Tips: Gun Snugs Flip - Mesh

Playbook: Dallas Cowboy

Formation: Gun Snugs Flip

Play: Mesh


  1. Motion the right outside WR to the left.
  2. Hot route the inside left WR from a drag to a slant.


  1. The slant will be your first read, it is a man beater and a quick hitter.
  2. If he is covered, look for the post to come open over the middle.
  3. If both of those are covered, the drag underneath will be your last read.

Overview: This is a good play for manipulating a good user linebacker, it has deep and underneath routes that will, with the correct read, give you a good gain every play.

Let’s get right into the screenshot breakdown.

We catch the pass for about a 15-20 yard gain.
