When to run it: This is a play action rollout or “boot” play. I use the scramble mechanic (hold RT on Xbox One, R3 on PS4) and the low pass mechanic (Hold LT+ Receiver Icon on Xbox One, L2 + Receiver Icon on PS4) to hit the comeback route. Due to the corner over the top and the proximity to the sidelines, I utilize possession catches (Hold A on Xbox One or X on PS4 with ball in air) exclusively on this route.

Why It Works: The Back releasing into the flat pulls down the underneath zoners, giving you a lot of room to work with down the sideline. The roll out shortens the distance between the throw and the receiver (vs. staying in the pocket), which creates a much shorter window for the DB to react to the comeback. Additionally, if everyone is covered scrambling is always a great check down option on this play.
