Madden 17 Running Tips: Weak Close - Inside Zone

Playbook: West Coast

Formation: Weak Close

Play: Inside Zone

Setup: None required

Overview: In this play make sure to NOT use turbo when you initially hand the ball off. This makes it easier to cut and hit the holes with the running back.  After you hit a hole you can use turbo to possibly break it for a big gain.
