Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N23 1 10 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Run Tight Zone 5
Vigil (-0.5) over-reacts to the back opening up wide and plugs what looks like the same hole McGee was trying to cover.  Aiming point are between the B gaps and Vigil has to hop back over inside.  Makes the tackle but cedes 3 yards after.
N28 2 5 1 2 2Wingx2 3-4 under Pass(1) Arrow/Slant 1
Everett (+1) (coverage +1) closes in on the arrow.
N29 3 4 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) Smash/Out Inc
Fade route on the smash opens up the Out which Harvey-Clemons is manned up on.  He forces it outside but loses a step at the out break.  Dropped.
Vigil is the 3-4 backer and Harvey-Clemons the Cravensbacker/Nickel backer.

Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N20 1 10 1 1 3(2stack)x1 Nickel Even Run Power 2
Vigil takes the strong side and attacks the puller but on the inside shoulder.  Pretty sure he’s supposed to funnel by attacking the outside but ok, he’s jacked up I guess.  He hops back over outside and gets the RB’s foot.  Brown (+0.5) dodges the double team and cleans up behind Vigil.  McGee slanted at the line to suck in the double team and open up an alley for Vigil and Brown.  Ioannidis (+0.5) cut off any backside cuts which killed us against Minnesota, and allowed the backers to play the strong side aggresively.
N22 2 8 1 2 2×2 3-4 DE Drop Pass(2) RB Dump off 9
3 man rush actually generates a decent amount of pressure (pressure +1).  Kerrigan and Smith drop off into hook/curl zones and Vigil has underneath while Brown has deep middle.  Vigil (-0.5) drops to the sticks and doesn’t close in fast enough.
N31 1 10 2 2 I-Form 2×1(tight) 3-4 under Run Wide Zone 3
Line looks shifted over but it’s under with Everett pressed over the TE.  9 in the box with Everett (+0.5) taking on the FB, gets rocked back but points for holding his gap.  Kerrigan sheds the TE, him and Breeland fill for cutback.  LBs over play the RB direction but they know Bree is behind them.  McGee gets removed and Hood (+0.5) along with Ion squeeze the front side gaps closed and stop RB momentum as he cuts it back.  McGee meets Kerrigan and Bree at the RB.  hard to tell if McGee purposely got off the line to slant back around or if he was making the best of a bad situation.
N34 2 7 2 1 3(2Wing)x1 3-4 under Pass(2) In/Out -2
They stretch our underneath zones (coverage +0.5) (pressure +1) and Hood (+1.5) collapses the interior pocket, stalls Eli’s throw and kerrigan (+1.5) wraps around for the sack.
N32 3 9 1 1 3×1 Nickel Okie Pass(1) Slant Inc
(pressure +1) Norman (+1) (coverage +1) all over it.
Punt.  Hood is everywhere today.
Drive 3 (7:56)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N30 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Even Pass(2) Slant/Seam Inc
Corner blitz (pressure +1) rushes the throw, Brown (+0.5) (coverage +0.5) with tight coverage, TE drops it.  Everett late over the top, no vertical threat to the other side.
N30 2 10 1 1 3x1H Nickel Even Pass(2) Bubble 2(-10)
Holding on King.  Fuller (+1) plays inside the bubble and draws the hold, DJ (+0.5) fills inside (coverage +1). Why are teams still testing Fuller on screens.
N20 2 20 1 1 2×2 Nickel Pinch Pass(2) WR Screen Inc
Looks like kerrigan (+0.5) Forced Eli to alter the path of the throw.  Fuller looked to be there to shut it down (coverage +1)
N20 3 20 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Run Draw 11
Kerrigan pushed his man into Brown, blindsided him.  Breeland (-0.5) misses a tackle.
Drive 4 (1:58)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N41 1 10 1 2 3×1(tight) 3-4 under Run Wide Zone 9
Vigil (-1.5) is late to scrape over top of Anderson who is slanting inside.  Vigil ends up catching a TE block and taken for a ride, RB cuts it inside of him.  TE essentially cracked down on Anderson and Vigil failed to replace.
50 2 1 1 2 3(2Wing)x1 3-4 under Pass(1) Vert/Drag/In 14
(coverage -1) Norman (-1) got beat backside, Eli didn’t see it.  Drag route beats Everett (-1) who didn’t get a good jam at the line.  Rushed 5, they kept 6 to block, Kerrigan (+0.5) forced Eli to step up but no interiror rush to make him pay for that.
W36 1 10 1 1 3×1(tight) Nickel Even Run Power 3
second time they’ve run Power from 3×1 with 11 personnel.  TE, LT and LG all dodge first level players and work up to the second level, probably to combat the earlier purusit of the LBs.  Hood (+0.5) adjusts and hits and sheds the puller, meets the RB inside his block.  Ioannidis (+0.5) meets Hood there.  Smith could close down his contain more, but he seemed unsure of how to react to this.  Vigil does a good job shedding his block.
W33 2 7 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Pass(2) PA OZ Boot Drag/Comeback Inc
(coverage +1) Smith looks confused on his responsibility and I’m not sure what he’s supposed to be doing.  Looks like he could’ve rushed the QB (pressure -1)
W33 3 7 1 1 2×2 Nickel Okie Pass(2) In/Out -4
(coverage +1) Same in out combo from earlier.  We drop both LBs and get 5 underneath, 2 deep.  Kerrigan (+2) gets a coverage sack.
Drive 5 (12:29)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N28 1 10 2 2 I-Form 2Wingx1 3-4 over Run Power 2
McGee and Kerrigan fill backside gaps.  Double is on Hood who holds inside, Ioannidis gets pushed inside but it creates a pile and spills the runner outside.  Vigil (+0.5) dodge the TE down block and takes on the puller’s inside shoulder.  Brown (+0.5) and Bree fill in on the other side of the puller.  DJ (+0.5) penetrates from the backside and hooks onto the RB’s feet.  Ion is too strong for a TE to push him down the line like that, that looks planned so Brown has less ground to cover on his gap fill.
N30 2 8 1 2 3(2wing)x1 3-4 over Pass(2) Improv 19(-10)
Holding on #74. Ioannidis (+1) draws the hold.  Kerrigan (-0.5) moves Eli from his spot but loses contain.  That could be in part due to the hold, but kerrigan has to close in with better discipline.  Breeland (-0.5) loses the WR on the out cut.  Everett closes in on the scramble and forces the throw.
N20 2 18 1 1 3×1(tight) Nickel over Run Power 4
Backside LB is way over to protect against pass, this run should’ve gone for way longer.  Lanier gets slammed on a double but takes a knee and creates a pile.  Brown (+1) takes the outside shoulder of the puller and funnels back inside into the pile.  Not just that but he rocks the puller enough that he impedes the RB through the hole.  Help arrives.
N24 3 14 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Split Pass(3) Cover 2 Hole 19
Norman (-2) (coverage -1) tried to jump the flat route for a pick six.  He needs to split the difference and sink with the deep route until the QB goes to the flat.
N43 1 10 1 3 2Wingx2 3-4 under Run Tight Zone 5
RB was aiming inside before bouncing it out.  Vigil (-1) attacks the wrong shoulder and instead of funneling to Brown he spills and also gets taken off his feet.  His gap is for the taking.  Hood comes off his block for the initial hit.
N48 2 5 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Pass(1) Arrow/Slant 9
Kerrigan got targeted on the Arrow (coverage -1)
W43 1 10 1 1 3Hx1 Nickel Even Run Mid Zone 6
Hood and Vigil spill outside to Ion and Brown (-1) who intstead of funneling, tries to make a play by double backing on his blocker.  That just gave up the outside.  That’s back to back runs with the linebackers trying to do too much instead of using their help.
W37 2 4 1 2 2Wingx2 3-4 under Run Power 2
Ioannidis sucks in the double which shortens the distance for Brown to cover.  Vigil (+1) spills to Anderson (-0.5) and Everett who funnel back to Vigil, with Anderson getting taken off his feet by a TE, Vigil wraps up and Brown (+1) who dodges the double working from Ion to him, levels the RB.
W35 3 2 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(1) HB Spot 5
Brown (-0.5) (coverage -1) bit for an out but he had help there in the flat.  Tough assignment.
W30 1 10 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Run Wide Zone 4
Zach Brown injured.  Dear god.  McGee (+0.5) comes off his block and makes the play.  Lanier (-1) unable to get movement down the line and the gap opened up inside of him.
W26 2 6 1 1 3(2stack)x1 Nickel over Run Power 4
They ran Power from this formation earlier.  McGee is handling cut backs.  He had DJ (-0.5) and Norman (-0.5) behind him but they over pursued playside.  Vigil (+0.5) switches sides with Harvey-Clemons so he can meet the puller first.  RB cuts back behind McGee.
W22 3 2 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Run Tight Zone 1
McGee (+2) splits the double and makes the play.  Him and Hood had doubles LBs filled in nicely.
W21 4 1 2 2 I-Form 2×1(tight) 3-4 under Run Iso Will 2
Giants lined up with a Wing, looked like power but then shift to this set.  Brown (+0.5) blitzes the A gap and meets the FB in the backfield.  Ioannidis flashes play side and funnels the RB inside.  Hood (-1) can’t hold up to the double and the RB is able to get around the penetration by Brown and get two yards over Hood.  Hood also lost his block which left Vigil (-0.5) in dodging mode, apparently he’s not able to take on a shoulder.
W19 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Pass(1) In/Corner/Out 3
That in/out combo again.  Brown (+0.5) closes in immediately (coverage +1)
W16 2 7 1 2 2×2 3-4 under Run Tight Zone 4
Ioannidis (-0.5) gets removed off the line by a double.  AJ Francis (+0.5) shocks his man and sheds, can’t make the tackle though until the RB got 4 yards.  Brown fills in making up for Lanier whose a little late closing inside.
W12 3 3 1 2 3×1(tight) 3-4 under Pass(1) HB out Inc
Brown (-1.5) (coverage -1) loses the RB which looks like his man.  Overthrow saves a potential touchdown. (pressure +1)
FG.  Only big play was because Norman tried a gamble for a pick six.
Drive 6 (1:30)

N3 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Run Tight Zone 3
Ioannidis (-0.5) and Lanier (-0.5) gets blown of the line by their doubles.  Vigil (+0.5) and Kerrigan (+1) fill on either side of Ion and spill the RB to DJ (+0.5) who cleans up.  Kerrigan had to own that TE block and work inside to prevent a big run up the middle.
N6 2 7 2 2 I-Form 2Wingx1 3-4 under Run Power 0
McGee fires upfield not sure if he got pushed up or was going for QB Boot, or taking the center with him.   Hood (+0.5) replaces him and takes away cut back and the Right Guard.  Lanier absorbs a double from the RT and TE and goes down to a knee, between Hood and Lanier is an alley for Brown (+1) to fire through and get the RB.  Smith (+1) creates a pile of bodies in the middle and the RB has to bounce outside.  Everett (+0.5) scrapes over top of Smith and sets an edge.  RB is taken down from behind by Brown and Breeland meets them there.  We were ready for Power they ran it from this same formation earlier.
N6 3 7 1 1 2×2 Nickel Even Pass(1) Hook Inc
Max pro as they work Breeland’s cover 3 cushion but Breeland (+1) (coverage +1) is right there.
Punt.  That defense on Power was a thing of beauty.  Wonder what the change up will be in the 2nd half.
Drive 7 (11:51)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation Run/P(SH) Play Call Yards
N15 1 10 2 1 I-Form 2×1(tight) 3-4 under Run Crack Sweep -2
They have run two wide zone plays (one iso-zoneish) from this formation and change it up with a crack sweep.  Kerrigan and DJ (-0.5) get cracked, Norman (+2) and Brown (+1.5) replace.  DJ can’t hold up against his block and deepens Brown’s path, but he overcomes that with his speed.  Norman goes down and takes out 2 pullers, one OL and one FB.  That clears the way for Brown.  McGee (+0.5) hustles down the line and anihilates the FB who couldn’t reach Brown and tried to turn up field for him instead.
N13 2 12 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(2) RB Screen 9(-7)
Illegal Block above waist, counts as a 2 yard gain.  Lanier (-0.5) loses his feet, Hood (-0.5) is late to recognize screen, he could’ve blown his up.  Norman (+1) gets a jump on it and draws the penalty.  Brown (+0.5) is able to just get enough to slow down the RB where Everett can clean up.
N7 2 18 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Run Power 7
Lanier (+0.5) takes care of cutback, H-C is behind him.  Hood (+0.5) takes on the double and Brown (+0.5) fills inside the puller, leaving a fit for Everett (-1) to fill, he does and fails to tackle.  Hood tries to get off his block and make the play but can’t.
N14 3 11 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) Back Shoulder inc
(pressure -1) (coverage +1). Breeland comes over late but the throw and timing seem to be off anyways.

They catch us in a bad alignment. Hood slants over, Lanier replaces his gap and Smith has contain.  Vigil (-1) is late to scrape over and fill inside the puller.  Brown (-0.5) fills outside the puller but can’t make the play.  Breeland (-0.5) cleans up but not until after a 9 yard gain.
N24 3 1 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) Arrow/Slant -8
Everett in press.  Empty look draws H-C outwide to cover the RB.  RB shifts back and now H-C is on the end.  Looks like a 6-1 with man-free coverage.  All guys are stuck to their men downfield (coverage +1). Lanier (+2) (pressure +1) beats his man inside.
