What Is The Definition Of Out Route In Football?

1. This play pattern in football requires a receiver to run straight down the field before cutting sharply toward the sideline at a 90-degree angle. This play is generally used to either stop the clock by going out of bounds with the ball or to evade strong coverage by a defensive player. The out route is also known as a jet route or a down and out; when the cut toward the sideline occurs early in the run, it is referred to as a quick out.
