In today’s free Madden 18 tip, SnA Exclusive is back to bring you a play that beats both cover 2 and cover 3 zones in Madden 18.

We’ve got the full breakdown below.

Playbook: Atlanta Falcons

Formation: Singleback Deuce Close

Play: PA Stretch Shot

Setup:

  1. (Optional) Hot route your B/circle WR to streak/fade
  2. (Optional) Motion your B/circle WR out wide

Reads:

  1. Your first look is your B/circle down the seam
  2. Then look to your X/square on the post
  3. If he is covered, look to your RB in the flat

Overview: This is a great play from the Singleback Deuce Close formation that can beat any coverage in the game and attack multiple different areas of the field. Use this in combination with the running plays and the Bench concepts and you have a solid under center scheme you can use.

Pro tip: You can use this play in a scheme with Singleback Deuce Close – HB Stretch.

Let’s take a closer look at how it all works.

This is how the play should look if you don’t make any of the optional adjustments.

Against a cover 2 defense here you can see that both our X/square receiver deep and our running back in the flat is open.

We throw it to the X/square receiver on his post route for a 30 yard gain.
