Plays containing the comeback Route
The Comeback route is the quintessential hard cut route. You want to push up field to the defender’s outside in order to make it look like you are going deep on a Fade or Streak Route. Once the defender turns around to run downfield with you, break off hard to the outside. It differs from a Stop or Curl route due to the fact that the break is to the outside towards the sideline, instead of to the inside towards the Quarterback. Therefore, the cut must be made with even more force in order to get your head turned all the way around in time to see the ball flying for you.
