Madden School UnlimitedPlaybook: Pittsburgh Steelers

Formation: Gun Tight Doubles On

Play: Pivot Fork


  1. Put the Y/Triangle receiver on a drag route


  1. The first read on this play is the drag route
  2. The second read on this play is the X/square receiver on the speed cut over the middle
  3. The third read on this play is the A/X tight end on the corner route
  4. The final read on the play is the post deep down the middle of the field

Overview: This play absolutely torches man coverage. The mix of all the routes makes it impossible to cover all of them. If your opponent is blitzing you, this is a great play that can result in huge gains.
