Madden NFL 15 Enhanced Screen Passes

The screen pass is already pretty effective in Madden 15.  We’ve found a way to make it even better.  The best part of it is that if you do it right, your opponent likely won’t even see the screen pass coming.

This play is most effective against zone defenses like Cover 2, Cover 3, Cover 4, or a zone blitz.  It isn’t nearly as good against man to man defense.

Let’s dive right in.

Madden 15 Screen Pass Tips: Gun Trips TE - Jags Y Screen

Playbook: Jacksonville Jaguars

Formation: Gun Trips TE

Play: Jags Y-Screen


  1. Hot route your tight end to a streak
  2. Hot route your running back to an out route and motion him to the left
  3. (Optional) Put your receivers on the left side of the screen on whatever you want


  1. You are always looking to your running back on this play
  2. If he is covered, throw the ball away if you can

Overview: We only want to call this play against zone defenses.  It will not work very well against man defense.  This concept works in a lot of different formations with many different screen passes.  Feel free to mess around with this a little in other formations.

  1. May be a dumb question but how do I get my custom playbook to show my added plays. Just got the game yesterday and I’ve added plays to a custom playbook, but when I go into practice or a game, the plays are not there?

    1. You have to choose the custom playbook as your plybook as well. You can do that by default in settings and then just scroll over to your custom playbook or you can do right when you are about to start a game or practice mode at the team selection screen under “advanced settings”

      1. The problem is when I get into a game or practice with my custom book, I don’t have any of the added plays. I can delete formations and plays and when I get into practice or a game they will be gone, but anything I added is not there???

        1. That is really weird, I haven’t heard of that happening before. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help

          1. No problem, thank you for responding… I figured it out…. Although I’m wondering if its an issue with my game or something….. Every single play I add goes into my “Hail Mary” formation, regardless of what it is. I’ve never had a problem like this with any other year of madden. weird.

  2. Its not an issue with ur game. I also had the same problem. It took me an hour to figure it out.
