Check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 20 Money Play: Singleback Ace Slot - Post Wheel Shallow

Playbook: New York Giants

Formation: Singleback Ace Slot

Play: Post Wheel Shallow


  1. Put the Y/Triangle tight end on a streak


  1. The first read on this play is the Y/Triangle tight end on the outside pass lead
  2. Then look for the B/O receiver on the wheel route
  3. If that is not there look for the X/Square receiver over the middle of the field
  4. Finally, if all else fails check down to the A/X tight end on the drag route

Overview: This play destroys Cover 3 defenses and beats Cover 2 as well with the same setup. The tight end on the streak is clearing the middle of the field for the X/Square receiver to be open. Then the wheel is open on the outside because the defense is being sucked in by the X/Square receiver’s route.

Let’s take a closer look at how this play works.

This is how the final play art should look right before you snap the ball.

We can see right away that our Y/triangle tight end is open against cover 3 defense.

But we also know that our B/circle receiver on the wheel route will get open against cover 3 as well. Notice how the defender who is in the purple zone sucks in to take away our X/square receiver on the post.

We lead pass to the sideline with no one around our receiver for an easy 15-20 yard gain.
