  1. Just follow the blocks up the middle

Overview: This run is extremely effective against Cover 4 defenses. It will force your opponent to have to run something else which will open up the passing game a little more.  The defense all drops into coverage leaving a nice hole right up the middle.

Let’s take a closer look at how this play works.

We have blockers out in front and our running back still hasn’t been touched.

We are finally tackled for about a 13 yard gain.
