Madden 20: Gun Split Close Miami – X Drag Trail

In today’s free Madden 20 tip, we are going over a play out of the Miami Dolphins offensive playbook. It attacks all parts of the field so if you make your reads correctly, you will get someone open just about every play.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 20: Gun Split Close Miami - X Drag Trail

Playbook: Miami Dolphins

Formation: Gun Split Close Miami

Play: X Drag Trail


  1. Put the X/Square receiver on a streak
  2. Put the B/O receiver on a drag route


  1. The first read on this play is either running back quick to the flats
  2. If that is not there look for the B/O receiver coming across on the drag
  3. Finally, find the A/X tight end deep over the middle on his post

Overview: This play is a great way to beat zone coverage over the middle of the field. The X/Square receiver clears out the defensive backs leaving the A/X tight end wide open on the post. Then we have solid check downs underneath if the post is covered.
