For this Madden Tips breakdown, we take a look at the Strong Close – PA Cross that has the split end running a crossing route from left to the right. He is also the plays primary receiver. Against man coverage, he is able to get inside position as he is not jammed at the line of scrimmage. The flanker runs a deep post. His pass route will lift the deep coverage, allowing the split end to get open underneath. If Cover 0 or Cover 2 is called, the flanker is a good option to throw the ball to. The tight end stays into pass block. The fullback runs a flat route towards the right. The halfback receives a play fake from the quarterback before running a flat route towards the left side of the field.
