Yoda is back for another Madden tip as we head closer to the Madden 15 release.  This time, he’s going over one of his favorite zone beaters in Madden NFL 25.  It is pretty simple and allows you to pick up 20-30 yards most of the time.

The video and full written breakdown is below.

  1. Hot route your circle/B receiver to a fade
  2. Motion your X/A receiver to the right
