  1. Your primary read on this play is the A/X running back on his streak route against Cover 4 Quarters, Cover 2 Man, or Cover 2 Zone

Overview: This play absolutely destroys cover 4 quarters defenses. Note that if your opponent has cancelled the matching logic in the Cover 4 quarters by setting his zone drops or protecting the sticks, the play will not work as shown.

This is how the play should look pre-snap. You should have your fastest running back in at the A/X spot.

Once the ball is snapped, our running back runs wide open deep downfield.
