Drive 1 (14:56)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
W16 1 10 1 2 2×2 4-3 splt Pass(2) (Cover3) Go/In Inc
2 high shell morphs into one high as the safety crashes down on Crowder’s flat route.  Cousins overthrows the Go and had the RB wide open on the Swing.  Reed was matched up on a linebacker but his route was taken away by the underneath coverage. (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
W16 2 10 1 1 3(2Wing)x1 Nickel Under Run(1) Wide Zone Weak -1
Safety comes down prompting Crowder to add himself to the box as a wing.  DE aligns inside of the TE to better pursue run away–film study–Reed (-1) can’t handle the angle.  Moses (-0.5) can’t cut his man so even if CT gets passed Reed’s whiff he’s got a guy in his path.  Long (-0.5) isn’t able to torque his man to allow CT a cut back.  Scherrf (+0.5) is able to hit the second level and seal.  Lauvao and Wiliams also seal out.
W15 3 11 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Man Free) Hitch/Deep In 12
Cousins looks the coverage into the hitch by CT and that opens up Pryor behind on the In (Cousins +1, Pro +1)
W27 1 10 1 2 3(2Wing)x1 4-3 over Run(1) Split Wide Zone Strong -1
Davis (-1.5) doesn’t read the DE slant inside and tries to cut up field instead of outside him to reach the second level.  Scherrf and Long combo to the LB, Williams (+0.5) is able to cut off the backside LB who has a step inside of him.
W26 2 11 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Quick Out Inc
Quick out versus a Cover 3 corner but Cousins can’t place it. (Cousins -1)
W26 3 11 1 1 Gun 2Back 2×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) (C2/Quarters) Flat/Hitch* Inc
Pryor runs a weird route versus cover 2.  Normally that’s a Corner route to stretch the Flat defender and fit underneath the deep C2 safety.  Instead he stops on a hitch and the coverage from inside is able to close in and get an almost INT.  Moses (-0.5) can’t handle an inside spin move and that throws Cousin’s launch point off.  The delay screws up what could’ve been a salvaged hitch route.  (Pryor Route -1, Pro -1)
Punt.  Bad route from Pryor, miss throw from Cousins and bad run blocking by the Tight Ends stall this drive.  Great look off from Cousins is the highlight.
Drive 2 (11:28)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
W25 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 over Pass(2) (Quarters) Post Inc
Cousins didn’t even have to arc it over a linebacker.  Correct read but poor throw  (Cousins -0.5, Pro +1)
W25 2 10 1 1 3(2Stack)x1 4-3 under Pass(1) (Cover3) PA Pin and Pull WR Screen 34
Pin and Pull action draws in the FS who has to crack replace.  Long and Scherrf take their guys up field while Moses pulls.  Williams (+2) locks onto a DB in open space and drives him 10 yards downfield.  Lauvao (-0.5) isn’t able to peel back, if he could that might have been six.
P41 1 10 1 2 I Strong 2×1 4-3 over Run(1) FB Insert Mike 4
Paul has Mike and the double teams are working to the outside backers.  Moses (-0.5) isn’t able to come off his double to take the OLB or else a huge cut back would’ve opened up.
P37 2 6 1 2 2×2 4-3 Okie Pass(1) (Man Free) Flat/Out/Go Inc
Cousins doesn’t see the Linebackers shift over their coverage away from Reed.  Also Reed is the only one running a hot route.  Compelete misread by Kirk as he aimed for Davis, who should’ve known to alter his route (Davis Route -1, Cousins -1, Pro +0.5). Not sure if Rob is coached to get out in a route or stay in to block, either way the hot route was open early enough for Kirk to get rid of it
P37 3 6 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover3) Drag/Deep In Fum
That Drag route was wide open maybe even for six.  Safety looked like C2 presnap but then shifted to C3.  Moses (-2) gives up the pressure which leads to a strip fumble.  (Cousins -0.5, Pro -2).
misread from Kirk, bad pass pro on 3rd down cause this one to stall.  Great play calling this entire drive.  Routes are open: the WR screen, Reed’s hot adjustment and the Drag were all open just no execution.
Drive 3 (6:29)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
50 1 10 1 2 2Hx2H 4-3 even Pass(1) (Cover3) PA Split Wide Zone Post/Drag (-10)
Holding on Reed (-2)  Cousins with a perfect throw, Pryor just drops it (Pryor Route -2, Pro -1, Cousins +1)
W40 1 20 1 2 3(2WingWRH)x1 4-3 even Run(1) Counter T 4
Only the first puller comes, it looks like we are keeping 2 TE and a WR to block backside pursuit which has been killing us.  Lauvao (-0.5) gets okie doked at the line and misses his block.  Williams (+0.5) and Moses (+1)–who executes a log block–are able to seal all three guys anyways and RB bounces it outside where he is one on one with a safety.  Pryor (+0.5) with a downfield block.  Kelley just can’t make the safety miss.
W44 2 16 1 1 2Stackx2 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Drag/In/Go (Scramble) 10
Doctson’s Go route looked like it opened up–may be a quasi Corner route.  Protection fell apart a half second too soon.  Given the earlier strip fumble, scrambling was the right call (Cousins +1, Pro -1)
P46 3 6 1 1 Gun 2Back 2×1 Nickel Under Pass(0) (Man Blitz) Go/Slant Inc
Doctson takes forever to get into his route, it feels like he needs to make that into a hot check.  I can’t tell if Pass pro is instructed to pick up the Ends or collapse inside.  Cardinal rule states you always pick up inside man first.  LB on a delay could be an exception.  Cousins is responsible for the extra man regardless, and can’t make the throw under pressure. (Doctson Route -1)
Punt.  Tough to see who to neg on that last play.  It could be a bad slide from protection, a bad route from Doctson, or bad throw under pressure.  On the run, another great call that wasn’t met with execution.  Gruden got Kelley one on one with a safety and Kelley did nothing with it.
Drive 4 (13:18)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
W24 1 10 2 1 I-Form 2×1(tight) 4-3 over Run(1) Pin and Pull Weak 6
Moses gets a little better cut block this time around.  Davis whiffs on whatever assignment he had backside.  Scherrf gets enough of a reach on his man to slow him down.  Not his best work though.  Long (-1) runs into the same guy Grant is cracking on.  Everything I’ve watched on the Pin and Pull would have Long working at a tighter angle to the linebacker.  If he did that this could’ve been a 10-20 yard run.  Instead Lauvao (+1) has to pick up Long’s trash instead of Pryor’s trash.  Williams (+0.5) kicks out.  Paul (+0.5) chases down his man as the runs away.
W30 2 4 1 2 3(2Wing)x1 4-3 over Run(1) Toss Stretch Weak 2
We have been running Wide zones and Counters from this formation all game long.  This time it’s wide zone again.  Williams (+1) with a reach block and torques the edge man inside.  Lauvao (-1.5) gets punked by a Linebacker who out hand fights him and throws him to the ground, damn.  Long gets just enough of his man.  Scherrf (+0.5) drives his second level block past the first down marker.  Moses and the Tight Ends cut off backside pursuit.  If not for Lauvao this would’ve been a first.
W32 3 2 1 2 3(Bunch)x1 4-3 over Pass(1) (Cover3) PA OZ Bootleg Levels (Scramble) 4
All the recievers are bunched together, someone’s running a bad route.  Cousins ends up scrambling for the first (Reed Route -1, Cousins +1)  Pryor on the drag seemed fine, but Reed got caught up on his break and ends up right next to pryor who has to slow down as to not run into Reed.
W36 1 10 2 1 I Weak 2(WRH)x1 4-3 over Run(1) Power Strong -1
They motion in the WR to even up the numbers, Grant has kickout.  Davis (-1.5) is the EMLOS but can’t handle his man’s inside slant.  Interesting concept with the FB inserting weak side to give a cut back option.  Both weak and strong side was blown up though thanks to Davis.
W35 2 11 1 1 3×1 4-3 over Run(1) HB Delay 1
Davis (-1.5) again blows up the play.  He whiffs and forces CT to bounce outside.  Scherrf (+2) blew his man at the line across Long and then targeted his guy perfectly at the second level.  If Davis would have just cut his man CT would’ve had an alley for the first, maybe six.
W36 3 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Trips Pass(1) (Cover2) Hitch/Deep In 9
Corners invert with the Free Safety post snap and turn a single high look into cover 2.  Same concept as earlier except this time Cousins throws it to the underneath hitch.  It should be a first but Reed slips and falls.  (Reed Route -1, Cousins +1, Pro +1)
Punt.  Davis’ run blocking robbed us of a big play.  Reeds run after the catch cost us a first.
Drive 5 (3:56)
Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
W31 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 under Pass(1) (Man Free) PA HB Screen Inc
Eagles put 2 linebackers and a safety over the wing side and shift the line down.  Probably protecting for a wide zone play which we’ve run out of 2 wing.  Long (-1) lets the lineman cross his face and blow up the path and timing of the RB screen release. (Cousins +0.5, Pro -1)
W31 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Even Pass(1) (Cover3) Arrow/Slant 12
Basic response to Cover 3.  (Cousins +1, Pro +1)
W43 1 10 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Over Run(1) Tight Zone 4
DE slants inside and we finally have an answer for it.  Blocker lets him go, RB cuts outside of it.  Grant (+1) with a great crack target to spring the RB free.
W47 2 6 1 1 3(bunch)x1 Nickel Under Pass(2) (C2) PA OZ Naked Levels 10
Coaches film is absent on this play but it looks like we took away C2 flat coverage with the play action.  (Cousins +1)
P43 1 10 1 1 3(bunch)x1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover3) C3 Hitch 5
Quick throw to the single side of the formation. (Cousins +1, Pro +1)
P38 2 5 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover3) Comebacks/HB Option 5
Cousins had plenty of time and a comeback to the near side open for the first down but instead checks it down.  Presnap read was Cover 3 and the outside route was open, looks like Cousins panicked (Cousins -0.5, Pro +1)
P33 1 10 1 1 2×2 Nickel Even Run(1) Power Strong 4
Lauvao (+1) with a perfect pull and form up block.  Scherrf (+1.5) and Moses (-1) double with Scherrf making a quick read to come off and pick up the stunt.  Reed (+1) with the kick out.  Moses inexplicably just stops blocking his man and that blows up the play, otherwise CT would have had space to operate.
P29 2 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Even Pass(2) (Quarters) Corner/HB Circle 29(TD)
Throw is to the single side.  Trips side runs underneath hitches to open up the dig by Doctson.  Pressure comes quickly and Kirk doesn’t have time to hit the Corner for six, instead checks it down (Cousins +1, Pro -1)
Touchdown, last drive before the Half.  CT in space saved us.  The Power game is iffy with Davis whiffing on the last drive and Moses stopping his block halfway through the play on this drive.

Ln Dn Ds RB TE Off Formation Def Formation R/P(SH)(Cov) Play Call Yards
W19 1 10 2 1 I Weak 2×1 4-3 over Pass(1) (Cover3) PA Go/In -6
Lauvao (-2) gets beat straight up (Pro -1)
W13 2 16 1 1 2Stackx2 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters) Hitches/Outs 5
Hitches backside, Out levels play side.  Cousins reads the CB in conflict and gets it out to the only open option (Cousins +1)
W18 3 11 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover3) In (-4)+5
T. Williams injured on the play.  Defensive Holding.  Either Long called a bad protection or fails to pick up the inside blitz.  Long (-1) gives up an easy sack (Pro -1)
W23 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 over Run(1) Counter 4
Davis (-2) whiffs on two blockers which forces Moses (+1) to stop his pull early and pick up Davis’ mess.  Moses almost cleans up on the secod whiff from Davis but can’t quite get over there.  Kelley stiff arms him to the ground and picks up a few yards on a busted play.  Scherff with a solid kick out.  Nsekhe and Lauvao with a double to the backside LB but Nsekhe can’t quite lock on.
W27 2 6 1 2 2×2 4-3 under Pass(1) (Cover3) Comeback/Hot Route Slant 9
Reed adjusts on a hot route as they rush 5.  (Cousins +1, Pro +1)
W36 1 10 1 2 3(2WingWRH)x1 4-3 over Pass(1) (Cover3) (Tight Zone) WR Check 4
LBs are shifted over perhaps to protect against Counter which we ran from this formation ealier.  CB gave Pryor a huge cushion, Cousins checks a throw his way. (Cousins +1). Pryor can’t make his man miss. (Route Pryor -0.5)
W40 2 6 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 over Pass(2) (Quarters) PA Posts/Drag (Scramble) 7
Reed (-1) can’t control the DE slant.  Cousins maybe had a RB outlet but pressure came in his face and he picks up the first with his legs (Cousins +1, Pro -1)
W47 1 10 5
P48 1 5 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 over Run(1) RPO Bubble IZ Read 9
Long (-0.5) got pancaked.  Cousins reads the end and Reed (+0.5) provides a good enough downfield block.  Bubble was available on the backside.
P39 1 10 1 2 3(2Wing)x1 4-3 Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Go Inc
I think it’s Cover 3 based on the release of the CBs.  Moses (-1) gets beat and Kirk has to get rid of it.  HB check down was coming open if Moses could have just held on a beat longer, essentially a throwaway (Cousins +0.5, Pro -1)
P39 2 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover3) Deep In/Slant under Inc
Inaccurate throw with plenty of time and CT coming open underneath (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
P39 3 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Trips Pass(2) (C2/Quarters) In/Out/Seam 11
Snag/In to the Quarters side, Seam up the middle and in out to the C2 side.  Cousins is able to avoid the rush and find the open man (Cousins +1, Pro -1, Quick Route -1). Brian Quick doesn’t settle in his zone and then turns the wrong way after the catch.
P28 1 10 1 2 3Hx1 4-3 Even Run(1) Wide Zone Weak 6
Williams kicks out, Lauvao takes care of the run through, Long (+1) tourques and seals out, RB cuts it behind him and Scherrf who targeted and sealed the LB.  Moses (+1) has a lot of ground to cover and does, gets underneath his man and provides an alley but Davis (-1) can’t get to his man in time.  It was a tough block, he probably could have aligned closer to the Tackle pre-snap.
P22 2 4 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Under Pass(1) (Cover3) WR Check 6
Cousins attacks the C3 corner (Cousins +0.5)
P16 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2 4-3 over Pass(2) (C2/Quarters) RPO Bubble IZ 1
Probably should have handed it off here.  Throw is slightly behind and slows Grant’s momentum (Cousins -0.5)
P15 2 9 1 1 2Stackx2 Nickel Even Pass(2) (Quarters) Corners/Flats Inc
Busted coverage up top had Grant wide open for six.  Protection was there.  It would’ve been tough but if Kirk scanned the field he would’ve seen it (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
P15 3 9 1 1 Empty 3x2RBH Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters) Fade/Out Inc
Both CT and Reed stay in to block and not enough guys run routes
FG.  17 play drive, holy hell.  Once we hit the red zone, Kirk got insecure with the pass protection.

Cousins hits the Deep out against a C3 Corner (Cousins +1, Pro +1) CT comes across to take out a blitzer and buy Kirk enough time
P48 1 10 1 2 2×2 4-3 over Run(2) Wide Zone Strong 2
Lauvao (+0.5) with a quick first step and Wiliams (+0.5) finishes the guy off.  Reed doesn’t hold his guy off long enough but that could’ve been the Boot’s responsibility.  Next time we run this we probably Boot
P46 2 8 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Even Pass(1) (Cover3) PA SZ Post 28
Play action sucked in the linebackers (Cousins +1, Pro +1)
P18 1 10 1 1 3(Bunch)x1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Slant 4
We ran a C3 Hitch and WR check from this bunch formation so far against Cover 3.  This time Kirk does some magic trick in the backfield to create a distraction, doesn’t work.  Would’ve been better off just throwing it on first step (Cousins -0.5)
P14 2 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Man Free) PA Power Fade/Cross Inc
Off target throw, (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
P14 3 6 1 1 2×2 Nickel Under Pass(2) (Man/Quarters) Slant INT
Cousins -1, Pro -1. Looks like a possible bust in coverage with the outside CB playing deep zone and every one else playing man

W1 2 10 1 1 Empty 3×2 Nickel Even Pass(1) (Cover3) Arrow/Slant 2
Not too many good options.  Cousins flattens out the Arrow with his throw, also it’s late and takes forever to get there (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
