If you’ve played any level of football (or Madden) you’re well aware of the slant-flat passing concept. It’s a day one install for junior-high passing games and can be found in the NFL as well.

Andy Reid called several plays with the slant-flat concept attached to their run plays. The Chiefs utilized multiple run-pass options against the Broncos. Reid said in his presser this week that the Chiefs had 125 passing yards on RPOs. The Chiefs kept these plays fresh with a variety of shifts, motions and formations as to not give Denver much in the way of keys.

We talked about three plays that went for 18 yards or more on this concept by Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins.
