Overview: The famous stretch play in Madden 17 at this point is pretty essential to a good offensive scheme in this madden. This run mixed with the HB Wham is extremely hard to stop because if the opponent commits to the middle the stretch will break to the outside for big yards.

Let’s dig into this play a little deeper.
