The Cardinals playbook is the best offensive playbook this year and this play is no exception. The best thing is how simple it is;

  1. All you have to do is put your HB in a blocking route (Y/Triangle, RB/R1 to select HB and RT/R2 to block)
  2. Throw the pass Low to the X/Square Receiver (Press LT/L2 as you press X/Square)

The key to the play is timing. Wait for the underneath linebacker to move a little more inside. The Low throw means the CB covering your WR won’t be able to get to it.

There are things you can do to combat this play so don’t use it over and over, but do keep handy for when you need it.
