K25 1 10 1 1 2Hx2H Nickel Even Pass(1) OZ Bootleg -9
Boundary: Smith stands up and splits wide with Spaight to his side, close to the line.  Looks like they are expecting a crack sweep.  Brown to the Field.  Conley in motion, Fuller is in man.  Kelce draws DJ Monte deep safety.  Kelce does crack on Kerrigan (+2) who rips upfield expecting a crack  and gets the sack.  Took the crack and the WR H-puller with him.  Smith (+1) collapses the pocket from behind.  (pressure +1)
K16 2 19 1 3 3(TEBunchWide)x1 3-4 OLB Split Run IZ Read 2
Kerrigan to the boundary and open side.  Smith lined up over the TE Bunch, has the inside.  Safety over top, Norman outside.  Bubble screen action from the bunch, Norman (+0.5) cuts through it.  Smith reads Kerrigan and it’s IZ.  McGee keeps contain and holds the line vs tackle.  Hood (-0.5) gets pushed back by a one-on-one center block.  Backside A-gap is open until Allen (+1.5) gets off his block to make the initial hit on the RB and funnels him to Foster.  Brown drops off in coverage initially and that creates a vertical crease in the offense.  The guard has to come all the way up to block him and Foster (+1) has room to undercut him and make the play.  I wonder if that’s by design.
K18 3 17 1 2 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) RB&TE Pick/Slant Under Inc
Spaight lines up 7 yards deep and we have a wall of 5 underneath defenders with 1 deep safety.  TE runs a slant that’s a block and RB picks Brown.  Slant infuences DJ to take the route instead of play the underneath WR getting a screen.   He drops it.  Not going to neg DJ but how can he not see that guy was blocking.  Probably should minus coverage but it’s 3rd and 17, everything was kept in front.
Punt.  Spaight in on the 1st and 3rd plays.  Brown was field backer on the 1st play.  On second and long they put Kerrigan to the open side and boundary.

Smith lined up outside the tight ends.  WR to his side goes in motion on the end around.  Kerrigan (+1) keeps backside contain, Brown goes with the end around/split zone action.  Cut back opens as McGee (-0.5) gets pushed inside but Hood (+1) reads the run and burrows his head down and penetrates, takes away any cutback along with Kerrigan who defeats his HBack block.  Smith (+1.5) 2 gaps, peeks inside and sheds his TE block to the outside.  McClain (+0.5) holds his block at the line.  Kerrigan cleans up.
K17 2 10 1 1 3×1(tight) Nickel Even Run Shovel Pass Read 1
This is their play where it’s Power blocking up front and the puller is the TE who gets the shovel based on Alex Smith’s read of the DE.  Almost like an inverted veer.  Preston Smith takes the RB so QB pulls and shovel is the read.  Except Ioannidis (+1) shoots his gap and ruins the blocking and the puller’s path.  Kerrigan (-0.5) follows Kelce whose the puller/shovel man but isn’t quite sure how to read this play if he did, he could’ve gotten a PBU/TFL.  Pulling guard whiffs on Spaight as DJ gets under his WR block and gets held, and Spaight (+2) who either lost his gap or made a genius move to bounce outside of DJ to lose the pulling guard and then shovel back inside to his gap and make the play.  Could be Spaight was just playing off of DJ who slanted inside.

Both inside backers are up to the line and it’s a sea of green between them and the 2 deep safties. (pressure -2)  Max protect but with 2 backs, we have to beat that.  Fuller (-2) (coverage -2) gets beat man to man inside.  He had inside leverage and was funneling outside.  He gets beat.

Line slants with Galette taking the flat, Foster shoots the gap (pressure +1) and flushes Smith outside where Anderson (-2) loses contain on his rush.  McClain (+0.5) with a hustle to chase down Smith from the opposite side of the field.
R34 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Run OZ Zone (End Around) 3
EA action holds backside pursuit from Galette.  Ioannidis (+0.5) shuts off backside A gap cutback.  Allen gets removed from the line but is able to cause a pile and Spaight takes on an OL on his knees, disengages and funnels back to the pile.  Smith (+1) crushes the TE block and seals any OZ off, forces the RB to cut upfield into the pile.

Kerrigan splits all the way out to the slot WR, to prevent a crack?  He jams the WR then sets the edge which is a few yards away from the numbers.  McGee (+0.5) holds the line and even penetrates a little with the guard, forcing the cutback behind him.  McClain (-1) can’t fight through the tackle even after aligning inside him and gets sealed out.  Hood (-2) gets washed down the line, loses the backside A gap and can’t keep Foster clean.  Foster is on the boundary probably because of his shoulder injury.  They need him kept clean.  Foster (-1) gets sealed.
K26 1 10 1 1 2Back 2×1(tight) Nickel Even Run IZ Read Bubble 1
Smith forces the QB keep.  Bubble holds DJ outside.  QB tries to cut it up field but Spaight (+2) baits the Tackle inside and then scrapes outside to make the play.

Corner/Flat route looked open to the backside which was cover 2.  Field side sees Kelce one on one with Spaight (-2) (coverage -1) and Spaight bites on an out fake and then misses the open field tackle.
K38 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Pinch PA Pass(1) PA Power TE Cross Inc
Cover 2 to the single WR side sees Norman (+2) (coverage +1) play flat and he comes off his zone to light up Kelce.  Both LBs bite on power run action and Kelce lost DJ in the traffic.  I feel like this play could’ve been diagnosed quicker as Kelce doesn’t even kick out and there was no threat of a shovel pass.
K38 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Over Run Shovel Pass Read 6
RB lined up outside draws Breeland.  Confusion ensues after the slot motions between Fuller and Brown (-1.5) as fuller expects Brown to bump down and Brown is either getting the call or trying to switch sides with Fuller.  It’s zone coverage on the back end so I’m assigning the screw up to Brown.  Ioannidis (+1) blows up Kelce’s shovel path again.  Power blocking removes Allen (-1) from the line and it works its way back to the backside backer–Fuller in this case–Spaight (+0.5) dodges the puller and Brown hustles to regain lost ground.  Smith plays Shovel/QB I would’ve liked to see him attack the outside here but I guess we all got jobs to do.  Breeland (+1) with a monster hit that sets tone and saves yards.  Maybe even a TD.

Cover 2 to the boundary sees corner/flat routes.  Everything is covered deep (coverage +1) we sent 4 (pressure +1) Allen (+1) collapses the pocket
Punt.  We have played cover 2 to the boundary every time, gives us Breeland as a flat defender vs RB release.  Smart move as the RBs would probably beat our backers in flat coverage.  Ioannidis has blown up that Shovel pass both times they call it.  He’s probably reading pass set blocking from the LT and motion from the TE and WR to his side.   Foster looks like the shoulder is bothering him, his snaps are reduced and he’s not playing as aggressive.  Both big gainers came from that LB spot (Spaight and Foster) failing to execute.

DE are split wide outside the tight ends.  Leaving big holes pre-snap at the line with DTs over the guards.  Ioannidis (-0.5) gets sealed inside and Smith (-1) gets driven up field and sealed outside.   Ioannidis looks to keep gap integrity but the backer behind him, Spaight (-2) gets a little too cute and tries to slice inside, huge hole opens up.  Nickel vs 12 sees 3 double teams at the line.  If Spaight fills correctly we might still be able to defend this one.  Foster (+0.5) shot his gap and killed any cutback.  DJ and Galette had gap integrity behind him.

Anderson playing off the line, lined up over Kelce, he takes flat coverage.  Norman (-1.5) (coverage -2) just gives a huge cushion like he’s expecting a post route.  WR sits in the zone and gets an easy 21 yards.  Underneath the Brown (-1.5) needs to come off the drag route and get depth in coverage.

Touchdown.  They out formationed us a few times on this drive.  Fuller was a run defender as 12 saw nickel.  And our 34 got spread out a few times with mixed results.  Brown’s coverage hurt us on this drive.

R48 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) TE Seam 20
we should really think about dropping all cover 2.  Kelce picks us apart again (coverage -2).  Brown, Spaight and Fuller are underneath and one of them fails to pick up the seam as crossers absorb all their attention.  Anyone of those 3 (probably not Fuller though) look to be possible culprits, not sure who to minus.  Probably Brown.

Kerrigan keeps Kelce and RB in to block.  That probably deserves a plus 1.  (coverage +1) Smith basically throws it away and settles for a FG.  Kelce up the seam has been killing our cover 2, that would’ve been a good time to use it.
FG no good.  Halftime.  Negatives with the inside backers remain the same: Brown struggling in coverage.  Spaight struggling with open field tackles.  Inside the box those 2 are pro bowl caliber, outside the box is a different story.

McGee (+0.5) gets off his block, Galette (+0.5) has backside pursuit.  Brown (+0.5) is there Hood (+0.5) penetrates playside, forces the cutback.  I’m starting to think the backside DE is supposed to come off the line to help with OLB pursuit on these OZ runs.

Spike.
FG.  20-23.  Spaight and Kerrigan are the biggest culprits for the 2 big plays.  Also playcalling.
