Your Opponent Will Never Call Cover 3 Again In Madden 22

Cover 3 is the most common defense in Madden 22 but after you watch today’s video your opponents will be silly to ever call a cover 3 defense again.

Let’s dive into it.

Playbook: Jacksonville Jaguars

Formation: Gun Empty Bunch

Play: Z Spot


  1. Make sure you are on the right hash mark
  2. Hot route your RB/R1 running back to a delayed fade route
  3. Hot route your B/circle receiver to a fade route
  4. Double team the outside most rusher on the right


  1. Your primary read on this play is the B/circle receiver deep on the fade route against Cover 3 defenses. He should be wide open.

Overview: This is a shot play when you expect any Cover 3 defense. If your opponent isn’t in a cover 3, scramble, throw the ball away, or find an open receiver.

is it because of the new patch on delayed routes?
