Madden 18: Gun Bunch – Deep Corner (Cover 3 Beater)

In today’s Madden School tip, Mazin is going over a way to beat cover 3 defenses deep in Madden 18.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 18: Gun Bunch - Deep Corner (Cover 3 Beater)

Playbook: Indianapolis Colts (and many others)

Formation: Gun Bunch

Play: Deep Corner


  1. Put the wide receiver on the single side on a curl route
  2. Block your tight end
  3. Streak route your A/X receiver


  1. This play is a deep shot, so we are really only looking to the receiver on the post route deep against a cover 3 defense.

Overview:   This was one of my favorite deep bombs last year, and it still works in Madden NFL 18 if you set it up just a little differently.

Last time a comeback was used to drag that deep third down, and this year, I like to use a curl route instead. It will bring the corner down and the streak by the slot WR will hold the safety in the middle of the field, clearing out the way for the deep post across the field.

Awesome play Mazin! Thanks bro! I’ve been waiting for a play like this one that beats Cover 3 with a much easier effort.

FYI – I’ve noticed that the last couple of videos from you cut off at the end right before you are able to close them out with your last comments. Just FYI.

Thanks again man.

That deep blue is still dropping back when I run this. He doesn’t hold with the curl for whatever reason

This play does not work the corner drifts back every play for cover 3…maybe a patch fixed this
