The first few weeks of the season only confirmed the importance of Madden 21 Coins winning the game, and Madden is no different. NFL coaches have their favorites, so you will need your favorites.
You can’t use it everywhere, but being able to enter a trustworthy game for a big third knockout or a key red zone offense may be between a playoff team and a team watching at home in January the difference.
No game is a guaranteed touchdown. It should be said that every big game on the offensive end usually has a defensive counterpart, but you can gain an average advantage by learning the following games.
On both sides of the ball, keep them on the sleeves for the important third drop attempt. To be successful in these games, you must practice, practice, practice!
PA Saints Shot (Deep Shot Play)
It can be helpful to roll out to the right a little on this play. If you make your reads correctly, at least 1 receiver should be open every time you run this play.
Put your X/square receiver on an out route and smart route him
Put your tight end on an in route and smart route him
Block your running back to cancel the play action
(Recommended) Double team the outside most rusher on the left side of the screen
If you have a good/fast receiver in the B/circle WR spot, he should get open deep against cover 2, cover 2 men, cover 3, and cover 4 (see the video for timing and lead passing)
PA Saints Shot (Base Play)
This 3 man route combination can drive your opponent nuts just because of how hard it is to defend both the B/circle receiver and the X/square receiver at the same time.
Put the B/circle receiver on a hitch route
Put the tight end on a streak route
Do whatever you want with your running backs
Your B/circle receiver on a hitch route should get open for a 5 yard pass against 90% of zone coverages you see.
If he is covered, we want to hit the X/square receiver deep on the crossing route who will also be open unless user covered.
PA Saints Shot (Base Play Version 2)
A lot of people love to call man to man coverage especially early on in the Madden season. This play will get them out of it.
Put your running back on an out route to the right
Put your B/circle receiver on a slant route
Both the B/circle receiver and the X/square receiver will get wide open against any man to man coverage
Just throw to the receiver that your opponent’s user doesn’t follow
PA HB Wheel (Cover 2 Beater)
Make sure to run this play from the left hash mark (to the wide side of the field) otherwise it will not work.
(Optional) Put your tight end on a streak route
Motion your B/circle receiver to the right
(Optional) Cancel the play action by hot routing your running back to block or go to an out route to the right
Against any cover 2 defense (with or without zone drops), your B/circle receiver will get wide open. Lead pass to the sideline
If you have a good fast receiver, he will also get open against cover 2 man.
Then look to the X/square receiver over the middle or your running back
Drag Wheel (Cover 3 Beater)
Only run this play to the wide side of the field (from the left hash mark) or it will not work.
Put your B/circle receiver on a fade route
Block your fullback and running back (or put one of them on a hot route of your choice)
Your main read on this play is the B/circle receiver deep (lead pass to the sideline)
If he is covered, or if your opponent isn’t in cover 3, look to the X/square receiver on the drag route
Your final read is the tight end on the corner route
Flanker Drive (Cover 2 Beater)
Make sure to run this play from the right hash mark.
Hot route your tight end to a streak route
Block your fullback
Put your running back on a curl route
Your primary read on this play is the X/square receiver against cover 2 and cover 2 man
If he is covered, look to the B/circle receiver on the drag route or the running back on the curl route
PA TE Corner
This play should work well because your opponent at this point should be very concerned about the crossing route. That should leave your B/circle receiver open and able to turn the ball upfield for a decent gain.
Put your tight end on a streak route
Block your fullback
Put your running back on a curl route and motion him to the left
Your main read on this play is the B/circle receiver on the drag route
If your opponent manually covers it, your X/square receiver should be wide open
