Over the next few weeks, EA Sports will show 25 new plays that you will find in Madden NFL 12.

Play #6 features the Charger Cross.

"Chargers Gun Normal Y-Flex Tight- Charger Cross - Another new formation for Madden NFL 12, TE Antonio Gates will line up closer to the right tackle in a receiver stance. On this play, Gates will run a drag route underneath drawing up coverage while the backside receivers run a cross and a dig respectively. As defenses collapse on Gates underneath, QB Philip Rivers has his choice of receivers coming across the field for a big completion. This play was used in the Week 1 game at Kansas City."

B. Because a rep from EA answered that question in another play thread that defensive plays will be shown in about 2 weeks.

this isn't a new play, it's a new formation, just as the quote says

Yeah, this was one of my favorites from back in the day -- only I remember running it from Singleback Normal. The slot (LB) used to destroy man and was good at beating Cover 3. The shallow cross was always a nice checkdown.
