The play we are breaking down in this tip is part of a concept that tournament players are very familiar with especially in Madden 13.  We use 2 fade routes and 2 streak routes with lead passing to throw our receivers open even when it looks like they are well covered.  The full analysis is below.

Playbook: Pittsburgh Steelers

Formation: Singleback Ace Pair Flex

Play: Four Verticals


Setup:

  1. Hot route your running back to block

Reads:

  1. Against man to man defense, lead pass inside to either your wide receiver on the fade route or your tight end on the fade route.

Madden-School.com Pro Tip: This play works best with highly rated receivers.  You will also want to have a quarterback with good accuracy to run this play most effectively.
