In today’s Madden School tip, we are going over a really effective play in the Green Bay Packers offensive playbook.

Check it out below.

Playbook: Green Bay Packers

Formation: Gun Open Flex

Play: X Seam

Setup:

  1. Put the B/O receiver on either an in route or a drag route
  2. Put the Y/Triangle running back on an out to the right
  3. Motion the X/Square receiver to the right

Reads:

  1. Look over the middle of the field for the X/Square receiver
  2. If that is not there look for the RB/R1 receiver on the over route
  3. Then look for the B/O receiver on the drag route for a check down
  4. Finally find the Y/Triangle running back on the last check down

Overview: This play is an effective way to exploit Cover 2 defenses. However, this play will also work against other zone coverages as well. The X/Square receiver is going to take the cornerback on the left side of the screen out of the play leaving the RB/R1 receiver open.
