Check out the full breakdown below.
Playbook: New England Patriots
Formation: Gun Y Off Trips Pats
Play: Pats Y Out
- Block your running back
- Your main read on this play is the tight end on the out route who will get open against any coverage but hard flats
- If he is covered, look to either of the 2 post routes
Overview: The route combination with the slot receiver running a wheel route and the tight end coming underneath him is incredibly difficult to defend.
This is a great play to call once or twice a game when you really need a first down and you don’t expect your opponent to be in hard flats.
Let’s take a look at some screenshots.
This is how the final play art should look right before you snap the ball.
Notice that the cornerback on the right is dropping back to cover the slot receiver on the wheel route. We just wait for our tight end to get out to the sideline and we make the pass.
We make the catch with a decent amount of space.
We turn it up field and end up with a gain of about 12 yards on the play.
