What Is a Play Action Pass in Football?

Answer

A play action pass is a pass play in American football used against defences that are presently focused on stopping the run. The offence team simulates a running play to deceive the defence team into acting on the faked run in order to get them out of position of their pass coverage. This gives the receivers room to get an opening behind the linebackers, catch the ball and run downfield.
