6 Madden 19 Money Plays That Will Guarantee A First Down

Money Play #3: Texas Concept

Now that you're comfortable throwing over the middle, it's time to introduce you to my favorite Madden 19 money play, one that they still haven't figured out how to program competent defensive A.I. for. 

As it states above, the Texas concept involves the running back tracing an angled route around the offensive line and over the middle, while a receiver or tight end runs either a seam route or a deep dig route.

This causes defensive backs in zone coverage to be overloaded, forcing them to cover one receiver or another. At the same time, if a defender is marking the running back in man coverage, when the running back makes the cut back across the middle, they'll have the speed to shake their defender.

Again, you'll want to deliver the ball to the running back as they're crossing past your QB, but keep an eye out for defenders in shallow zones or particularly tall linemen who could bat the ball away. If you're looking to complete this pass, try to aim it high rather than low.

If you complete it, you'll be looking at a 7-yard gain with the opportunity to tack on a whole lot more if your running back can shed a tackle or two.
