Drive 1 (12:05)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
S33 1 10 1 3 2Wingx2 3-4 under Run IZ -4
Kerrigan (+0.5) rips under the tackle and Hood wraps around him.  Rest of line crashed down with Dunbar filling in contain.  Well that’s one way to overcome not having a nose tackle.  QB fumbles the exchange.
S29 2 14 1 2 Empty 3×2 3-4 even Pass(2) Go/Out 8
Dhall and Brown bracket Graham (coverage +1) both OLBs play hook and take out the RB.  We rush 3.  Dunbar sinks with the Go route until the QB checks it underneath.  They bump McClain (-0.5) (Rush lanes -1) out of his rush lane and it opens up a scramble opportunity for the QB.
S37 3 6 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) Scramble (9)-10
Holding. (coverage +1) Lanier (-0.5) (rush lane -1) gets bumped and gives up a scramble opp.  Smith (+0.5) draws a holding call
S27 3 16 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) Hooks/RB Flat Inc
Smith (+1) and Kerrigan (+0.5) (pressure +1) collapse the pocket and force the check down (coverage +1)  Lanier (+0.5) keeps his rush lane integrity after faking inside (rush lanes +1)
Punt.  They are bumping our interior rush with the uncovered lineman and opening a path for Wilson to scramble.  Coverage has been excellent, we switched to a 2 high safety scheme for this one.  Possibly due to not having Nicholson’s range back there?
Drive 2 (8:21)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
W42 1 10 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Run Zone Stretch 2
McGee (+0.5) flows with the line and shuts down backside B gap.  Hood slants into backside A and Brown (+1) scrapes over top into the playside A and makes the play.  His gap is cleared out thanks to McClain and Compton slanting out wide and taking lineman with them.  McClain drew the PSG and PST, Compton (+0.5) drew the center.
W40 2 8 2 1 Offset I 2×1(tight) 3-4 under Run IZ 1
McGee and Smith slant inside, Compton and Norman wrap around with FB targeting Compton.  McGee (+2) rips under the tackle and makes the RB cut a gap over, Hood and McClain (+0.5) are near the line to take away those options.  McGee makes the play.
W39 3 7 1 1 2×2 Nickel Okie Pass(1) In/Snag Inc
Compton (+1) draws the HB block off balance and stunts into the LG and allows Lanier (+1) (pressure +1) to wrap around and punish the QB.  DJ (+0.5) (coverage +1) was all over the TE.
Punt.  Two runs that we dictated the gap or got penetration with the DL and a stunt vs pass to deliver a punishing blow by Lanier.  He’s earned himself a rotation on the interior against pass even when Allen and Ion come back.  Easy to see why Compton gets the start over Spaight in the 3-4, he gets the intracacies.
Drive 3 (6:42)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
S31 1 10 1 1 3Bunchx1(tight) Nickel under Run Zone Stretch 3
They attack the bubble that we make between Jones and Kerrigan, Brown will fire into that gap.  Kerrigan (+1.5) sets the edge, sheds and contacts the RB at the line,  Jones (-0.5) gets pushed back into Brown (+1.5) who shocks the OL gets off the block and cleans up.
S34 2 7 1 1 2Hx2Stack Nickel Even Pass(2) PA SZ RB Flat 14
Split zone action.  Unlike last week we are able to fall back into coverage after the fake (coverage +1)  LBs get proper depth.  Smith (+0.5) (pressure +0.5) gets inside of the LT and flushes Wilson out the pocket, he has to check it down to the RB.  Brown (-2) turned his back when he dropped into coverage and loses sight of the RB then misses the tackle after taking a bad angle.
S48 1 10 1 2 3Bunch(tight)x1 3-4 under Pass(1) PA OZ Go/Drag 23
Someone voids underneath coverage on the drag route and it looks like DJ (-2) (coverage -2)
W29 1 10 1 2 2Hx2H 3-4 under Pass(1) Fade Inc
Brown on a delayed blitz (pressure +0.5) with Anderson dropping into coverage, cover 3 and (coverage +1) everyone is locked down.  Great design on the blitz which allowed for good rush lane integrity.
W29 2 10 1 1 2Hx2Stack Nickel Over Run Split Zone 3
They ran play action from this formation a couple plays earlier.  McGee and Hood slant, Galette cancles out the sniffer and takes the gap inside him, Compton wraps around for contain while taking a lineman with him.  Hood (+0.5) takes away cut back, McGee (+2) takes on the double, splits it and makes the play.  Brown (+0.5) plus up the gap inside McGee which is where the back wanted to go.
W26 3 7 1 1 4×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) Cross/Vertical Inc
They bracket Baldwin and Compton sticks with a WR downfield enough to force an errant throw (coverage +1).  At the line Galette gets bumped by the RB and fails to execute his stunt with Hood, at least it looks like Hood was trying to set one up.  Lanier falls down but gets back up in time to keep Wilson from scrambling along with Brown’s help.
FG no good.
Drive 4 (1:54)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
S45 1 10 2 1 I-Form 2Stackx1(tight) 3-4 under Run Iso Mike 8
Hood (-1.5) gets removed from the line and sealed out about 4 yards deep.  McClain gets penetration and funnels the run inside.  Jones (-0.5) loses his feet and fails to keep Brown (-0.5) clean and Brown gets sealed out.  Cut back looked to be there behind Jones, but he got enough penetration plus Norman was there to fill.  Compton takes on the FB, hole between Brown and Hood opens and DJ cleans up.
W47 2 2 Penalty -5
Illegal Sub
S48 2 7 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Over Run Zone Stretch 3
Smith and Kerrigan are bumped out way wide.  Hood slants inside, tries to draw the tackle with him, Brown fires into the gap outside him. RB cuts it in between Hood and Jones–backside A gap.  Compton (+1) okie dokes the guard by faking outside then coming back in to make the play.
W49 3 4 1 1 2×2 Nickel Okie Pass(1) Slant (Hot) INT
We blitz both backers (pressure +1) and Fuller (+3) (coverage +1) reads the hot route adjustment and gets the INT.
Interception.  Hood got got on first down, otherwise we are dominating up front.  Compton has been juking lineman all game
Drive 5 (14:43)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
S29 1 10 1 1 2Wingx2 Nickel Even Pass(1) PA SZ WR Flat Inc
Galette (+1) reads the play action and is in the QB’s face, cancels any scramble or decent room to throw. (coverage +1) (pressure +1)
S29 2 10 2 1 3×1 3-4 DE Split Pass(1) Back Shoulder Inc(+12)
2 backs with one lined up out wide, Norman over top of him in zone coverage.  Breeland to the single side against the rookie Darboh.  Breeland (-1) (coverage -0.5) can’t cover without grabbing.  Compton had deep coverage vs TE, McGee and Brown run a stunt that forces a quick throw (pressure +1)
S41 1 10 1 3 3Wingx1 (6OL) 3-4 under Run Outside Zone 4
Tobin reports as eligible.  This run is designed to cut back behind the 3 tech (McClain).  McClain (-0.5) gets flowing and bumped down the line by the tackle.  Kerrigan checks for boot then closes in to clean up.  Brown may have overpursued on this one.
S45 2 6 2 1 I-Form 2Stackx1(tight) 3-4 under Run Iso Will 5
McClain (+0.5) submarines past the LG and draws the center from the double team which frees up Brown.  Compton (+0.5) meets the FB at the line and the RB cuts it behind him into Brown (-1) who catches this run instead of attacking it then cedes a couple yards after contact.  Brown looked to be expecting something his way, probably the FB, and had to readjust and lost sight of the play.
50 3 1 2 2 I-Form 2wingx1 (6OL) 3-4 under Run Iso Mike 4
Tobin eligible.  McGee (+0.5) crushes the guard into the backfield and shuts down any run outside of him.  Hood (-1) gets sealed all the way out by a single block.  McClain got under the guard but Hood’s departure left a hole inside of him and he gets washed down the line.  Looked like a slant by Hood and McClain with DJ (-1) firing into the hole, it looks like he goes through the wrong one.  Anderson (+0.5) constricts the gap by working the TE down the line.  And the runner gets funneled into Compton (+0.5) who sheds his blocker and makes the play.
W46 1 10 1 1 2Wingx2 Nickel Even Pass(2) PA IZ Corner/Flat 6(+15)
Routes desinged to stretch flat coverage (coverage -1) which is Norman (-1) who comitts a horse collar on the takedown.
W25 1 10 2 1 Offset I 2×1(tight) 3-4 under Run Counter 11
McGee slants and Brown steps to his original gap like it was a stunt to take out Iso.  They catch us with the counter.  Coaching -3.  Jones (-1) gets sealed out and Kerrigan (-0.5) avoids the kick out and attacks the mesh but can’t make the play, leaves a big hole for Brown to cover as he funnels to inside of the FB pull through.  They got us here.
W14 1 10 2 1 2Stackx2Stack 3-4 under Pass(2) WR Screen -10
Offensive PI (coverage +1)  They are running WR screens when Fuller is on the sidelines, putting us in the 3-4 before calling it.  Compton (+0.5) was there to limit the yards.
W24 1 20 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) Seam Inc
Fuller drops into his flat zone,  Breeland (+2) (coverage +1) almost gets the INT and stops the TD.
W24 2 20 1 1 3×1(tight) Nickel Even Pass(2) Verticals (10)-10
Holding, Galette (+1) Smith (-0.5) gave up pass rush lane integrity let Wilson escape outside (coverage +1)
W34 2 30 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(2) WR Screen 5
Well, nvm here is a WR screen vs Fuller.  Breeland (-0.5) gave up contain.

S28 2 15 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Even Pass(2) Corner/Flat 20
Stretching flat zone coverage of Fuller, Looks like he needs to sink a bit deeper on that or Breeland needs to come off the go route (coverage -2)

(coverage +1) (pressure +1)  Blitzed inside with Kerrigan keeping contain.
S48 2 10 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Split Pass(1) Hitches(Scramble) 11
Scramble.  This looked like a designed scramble with TE and RB routes widening the ILBs and the LT grabbing Smith who isn’t able to wrap around Lanier.  Not sure who to minus on this one.
W41 1 10 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Even Pass(2) Go/Out Inc
(coverage +1) (pressure +1)  Slide protection went left we came with Brown to the right, Brown (+0.5) blows up the RB and Anderson (+0.5) gets past the outside shoulder of the tackle.
W41 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) Slant 10
DJ (-1) messes up by calling Brown to cover a WR.  (coverage -1) Lost this pre-snap.
W31 1 10 Spike Spike
Spike.
FG no good.  Halftime.  Corner/Flat stretched out our zone.  2 scrambles hurt us.  DJ not sure how to cover the slot with this 2 high structure.  In single high he knows to cover the Slot, but here he thought Brown was supposed to, just about everyone corrected him after the snap.
Drive 8 (15:00)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
S25 1 10 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Even Run Split Zone 5
Hood (+0.5) fights through a double and keeps his gap covered.  Hood and McClain both slant over, the double on McClain never makes it as the tackle comes off and picks up Brown.  McClain fights off his block to make the tackle, but not until giving up 5 yards.  We were light in the box with only 6.
S30 2 5 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Run Zone Stretch 2
Kerrigan reads a crack block coming pre-snap from the WR and looks to fire upfield quickly.  McClain (+1) holds a double team and stays at the line, giving Compton (+0.5) a free path at the RB.
S32 3 3 1 1 4×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) #3 Vert Inc
Dhall (+1) (coverage +1) with the PBU (pressure +1)

Kerrgian is held and loses contain.  Brown (+1) chases down Wilson.
S18 2 10 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Even Run IZ Read 3
Wilson slides and gives up early, probably why they don’t go back to this.
S21 3 7 1 1 Empty 3(Bunch)x2 Nickel Split Pass(2) In 11
DJ (-1) and Dunbar seem to be bracketing whatever deep route comes from the Bunch.  (pressure -1)  DJ with a missed tackle that leads to a first down.
S32 1 10 1 1 2Wingx2 Nickel Even Pass(1) PA OZ Improv 9
Not sure who has RB coverage (coverage -1) but Brown (-1) (pressure -1) misses the tackle and it’s Improv time.
S41 2 1 1 3 2Wingx2 3-4 under Run Zone Stretch 0
Brown (+0.5) fires through the gap and forces cut back early.  Compton (+0.5) fires through his gap which is left open because Jones (+1) tackles his double team, not called for it.  Anderson (+0.5) sheds the TE block and meets Compton at the RB.
S41 3 1 1 2 2×2 (6OL) 3-4 under Run Zone Stretch 5
Tobin eligible.  Anderson and Kerrigan flip sides so Kerrigan can matchup against the extra OL.  McGee (-1) gets pancacked.  Brown (-0.5) stays lateral and catches the RB well past the first down.  Run designed to cut behind McClain with Kerrigan paralyzed by Read option.
S46 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) Scramble 3
Kerrigan (-0.5) gets widened out by a TE.  Compton (+0.5) is there to forcce the slide.

Brown (-1) with a bad angle and Breeland (-1) with a missed tackle.
S23 1 10 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Even Run IZ Read 13
Smith crashes, and I see no indication that its’ supposed to be a scrape exchange with Brown.  Breeland (-1) with a bad angle, needs to keep contain.  On the next IZ Read there is a scrape exchange, so maybe Brown is at fault.  Not sure who to minus.
S36 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(2) #2 Vert Inc
Fuller (+2) (coverage +1) gets told late from DJ to take the deep man, he catches up and makes the PBU.  Lanier (+1) with a good inside rush and keeps lane integrity.
S36 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Even Pass(2) Hitch 6
Fuller (+0.5) (coverage +1) closes in quickly.  Compton a little too generous with his early drop.

Galette with inside coverage on Bunch and they attack that (coverage -1)
W46 1 10 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Even Run IZ Read Improv Inc(-10)
No idea what Wilson is thinking on this one.  Scrape with Anderson (+0.5) and Brown (+0.5) kills the Read and Wilson tries to make it into a pass play.  Thanks for the 10 yards.
S44 1 20 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Even Pass(2) Scramble 11
(pressure +1) but McClain (-1) can’t disengage in time from his bull rush.

Lanier (+1) (Brown +1) (pressure +1)
Punt.  IZ Read, Scramble and out routes were the big plays.  1 ceded due to a bad tackling angle, one due to miscommunicaiton on a scrape exchage and one damn scramble.

Brown (-1) gets sucked in by PA and can’t get enough depth. (coverage -1)
W16 1 10 1 3 3Wingx1 (6OL) 3-4 bear Run Counter 6
Tobin eligible.  Last time in this formation they attacked the 3 tech and cut it behind him.  They catch us slanting and there would be a touchdown except one of the puller tripped on his own feet.  Brown is left free to make the tackle.  Could have taken a better angle to the ball, came in flat.
W10 2 4 1 2 2Hx2Stack 3-4 under Pass(1) PA TE Flat 10(TD)
Brown (-2) (coverage -2) loses the TE in coverage.  Line was slanting with Compton firing his gap, looked like a run blitz to stop inside zone/split zone.
Touchdown.  2 pt failed.  Busted coverage, 2 of them with play action affected a third coverage.  Both busted coverages were in the flat zones.

Brown (-0.5) gets fooled by the eye candy.  Hood (+1) runs down the play Smith (+1) sets the edge.
S41 3 1 1 3 3Wingx1 3-4 over Run IZ 0
QB makes a change at the line, busted blocking up front leaves McClain (+0.5) free to the backfield and he widens the RB path, into DJ (-1) who takes a poor angle and misses and spills to norman (+3) who makes an open space possibly game saving tackle.
Punt.  Flat coverage is a problem.  Jno with a huge stop.

S38 2 1 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) Out 21
6 guys are deep in coverage leaving Compton in a crappy situation (coverage -2)  He picks to attack Wilson and it’s 21 yards through the air.
W41 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Pass(2) Drag Inc
We blitz with 6 (pressure +1) leaving 5 in coverage (coverage +1) it’s a throw away.
W41 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Over Pass(1) Scramble 11
Line is shifted ALL the way over.  Wtf kind of alignment is this.  Wilson decides before the snap he’s taking off.  Plus Kerrigan (-2) goes with an inside move?  Hood wasn’t having any part of that stunt.  Contain broken.
W30 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) #3 Vert 30(TD)
Norman (-2) misses badly on press (coverage -4) either Dhall or DJ miss the vertical from #3

S30 2 5 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) Improv 6
Fuller or Breeland (-1) bust flat coverage here (coverage -1) Smith (-1) loses his feet and contain.  They yank Breeland after this play so I’m assuming it was him

W46 2 18 Hail Mary Inc
Nope
Game.  Brown probably couldn’t gotten a little more depth on the 26 yarder but I understand why he was so close to the LOS given all the scrambling wilson was doing.
