Check out the full breakdown below!

Madden School Unlimited

Playbook: Green Bay Packers

Formation: Gun Pack Trips

Play: Slot Fade Shot

Setup:

  1. Block the running back
  2. Put the A/X receiver on a streak
  3. Motion the X/Square receiver to the right and put him on a streak
  4. Put the B/O receiver on a drag route

Reads:

  1. This play is mainly a two step read, initially look for the A/X receiver on the streak
  2. Then look for the RB/R1 receiver on the corner route
  3. If neither of those are there check down to the B/O receiver on the drag route

Overview: This play we are going over how to beat Cover 3 and Cover 2 defenses in one play for a touchdown. The RB/R1 receiver’s corner route is unique and will either hold down the outside third allowing the streak to be open, or it will beat a Cover 2 itself. As shown this play is a simple two step read with a drag as a check down.
