In today’s free Madden 17 tip, we are going over a situational passing play that you can use when you really need a conversion on something like 3rd and 5.  It isn’t the most dominant play in the world, but it can be a nice play to mix into your scheme.

You can check out the full breakdown below.

Play: Mesh

Setup:

  1. Put the X/Square receiver on an out route
  2. Put the A/X receiver on an in route
  3. Put the RB/R1 running back on a curl route

Reads:

  1. The first read is the X/Square and the B/O receivers on the high and low read
  2. The second read is the A/X receiver over the middle
