Welcome to another Madden season! In today’s free tip, we are going over one of the hardest routes to defend in all of Madden 23.
You can almost throw this pass blindly (just watch out for your opponent’s user defender) and you should get anywhere from 5-15 yards every time.
We’ve got the full breakdown below!
Playbook: Baltimore Ravens
Formation: Gun Wing Slot Wk
Play: Ravens Double Post
- Make sure you are on the left hash mark
- (Optional) Motion your A/X tight end to the left and hot route him to a streak route
- Against any coverage in the game except zone drops set to 0, your RB/R1 running back should be open in the flats (see the video for timing)
- If your opponent does have zone drops set to 0, just wait slightly longer for your running back’s wheel route to head upfield and then throw it
- If the running back is covered, the B/circle tight end will be open underneath
Overview: This is one of the easiest passes to make in all of Madden 23 and it is good for 5-15 yards every single play.
Pro Tip: Use a quarterback with a velocity improvement ability like Set Feet Lead or Pass Lead Elite to make this even more effective. It also helps to have a fast running back.
Let’s take a closer look at how this play works!
This is what the default play art looks like. You don’t need to make any changes to it unless your opponent is in man coverage
Right after we snap the ball, you can see a sweet spot in this defense (Cover 3). We want to get the ball out quick to our running back in the flat.
We make the catch with no defenders around our running back and turn it upfield.
By the time we are run out of bounds, we have an 18 yard gain.
Consistent quick passes to the flat will force your opponent to have to adjust early on which should open up the deep passing game later.

Are you guys releasing a full scheme out of ravens playbook?
We don’t have plans for that just yet but it is hard to know this early on.
Joining Madden school is the best thing I have done!! My gameplay has improved tremendously. Easy to understand insights and always providing updates!
