We asked the Madden NFL 16 development team to share their best clutch plays in the game.

Play Name: Full House Wide PA Packer Posts (Green Bay Packers)
When to run it: This is a Play-Action play that has 6 blockers faking a run and two wide receivers running deep post-routes. It’s an ideal play for 2nd or 3rd and short down-and-distance situations.
Why It Works: This is a great play to use our new “Playmaker” mechanics, especially with the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. The play-fake gets the linebackers to bite up towards the line of scrimmage when they react to the run, and this creates a nice window for the WR post-route on the left.
Throw the ball as the receiver crosses the face of the defensive back, ideally using a bullet pass lead out in front, and the RAC catch mechanic (X on Xbox One / Square on PlayStation) to get a quick turn up the field and split the safeties for a big play. It’s one of those plays that’s a threat to go to the house any time its run against the right coverages.
