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


  1. Hot route your running back to block


  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. 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.
