Use New Quarterback Pass Controls

In Madden 16 you can control passes better as the quarterback. Instead of simply holding the button you want to throw to for a longer or shorter time you can now place the ball where you want it.

Press LB or L1 while throwing to a receiver to lob the ball up high. This is great to combine with a long throw and an aggressive catch.

Press LT or R2 while throwing to throw the ball low. This is essential when you need to put the ball in a location where only your player can catch it.

Double tap the receiver button when throwing to throw a touch pass to a player running a cross route.

Knowing when to use these will help you beat your opponents. You can also use the left stick to throw in the direction you push for more control. Try these out in the intro game you cannot skip and then in an offline game while you install to master the controls.
