In today’s Madden School tip, we are going over a play that absolutely destroys one of the most common defenses in Madden 18.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Playbook: Run and Shoot

Formation: Singleback Trips Open

Play: PA FL Stretch

Setup:

  1. Streak the A/X receiver
  2. Drag the B/O receiver
  3. Block the running back

Reads:

  1. The first read on the play will be the B/O receiver quick on the drag route
  2. If that is not there look for the RB/R1 receiver deeper over the middle
  3. Then look towards the X/Square receiver deep on the post over the middle

Overview: This play floods a Tampa 2 zone coverage and any other Cover 2 as well. We are attacking the middle of the field in three ways, short, medium, and deep. This gives the opponent to many routes to cover in a Cover 2.
