W33 1 10 1 3 2WingWRHx1(tight) 3-4 under Run(2) Tight Zone 2
Doctson motions over to the Wing side and kicks out.  Scherff (-0.5) checks for A gap run through and thinks the Nose it slanting into it, but it was a fake out step and the nose is in the other A gap.  Scherff misses the LB running through and the A gap is closed.  Moses can’t seal out but also doesn’t let his man fall off of him.  Perine cuts it outside but it’s into a Niles Paul vs Khalil Mack matchup.  Mack falls off his block and makes the play.  I can’t minus Paul on that one.  Raiders sniffed out this call–we tend to run a lot of Tight Zone from 13 personnel–and the NT was playing mind games with Scherff.  (Playcalling -1) (Cousins)(Pro)(Player Route)
W35 2 8 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Split Run(2) Trap 2
We ran Counter from this formation last week and the Raiders are guarding the perimeter with Down Lineman.  Looks like we switched up to a trap call which can take advantage of this defensive split. (Playcalling +1) Not sure of what the left side’s responsibilities are here.  Lauvao’s first step covers the B gap and it looks like they are fanning out but the DL slants into the A which Scherff should have with his trap block but Lauvao still comes over to help.  So confused on that, but Williams slides over as well so perhaps Lauvao did what was coached.  Scherff (-1) knocks Lauvao off his man as if he wasn’t expecting him to be there and the DL is free to make the tackle.  Moses had the kick out and Davis got lucky as his man made a swim move which sealed himself out the play.  Long (-0.5) couldn’t get leverage on the LB and can’t seal out.  Good play call but poor adjustment to the slants.
W37 3 6 1 1 3Bunchx1 Nickel Okie Pass(1) (Man Free) 4-Verts/HB Circle 26
Davis beats his man inside and gets a step.  (Cousins +1, Davis Rotue +1, Pro +1)
O37 1 10 1 1 2×2 (Tackle Over) 3-4 under Run(1) Power G (Arrow/Slant tag) 1
Niles Paul is the TE and just like the Rams, Raiders are in 3-4 personnel.  We have to make them pay for this eventually.  We run Power with an Arrow/Slant attached but Kirk doesn’t look like he’s reading anything so it’s not an RPO.  Everyone blocks down with Williams unable to reach the backside LB but it doesn’t matter because they out man us at the line and Scherff is left with two guys to block.  Cousins needs to check out of this play and if we don’t trust him with that responsibility then that’s on him too,.  But we run the Arrow/Slant so it looks like he just failed to read the personnel on the field (Cousins -1)
O36 2 9 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Man Free) Arrow-Slant/Double Outs 10
Kirk reads the CB blitz and hits the best option with the outs (Cousins +1, Pro +1). Raiders finally respect out 11 personnel with a Nickel.  Crowder looks to have broken his route off quickly understanding a blitz was on the way (Crowder Route +0.5)
O26 1 10 1 2 2Hx2H 3-4 under Run(1) Tight Zone 4
Lauvao (+0.5) seals out and Long-Scherff double nose to mike.  Scherff can’t hold his seal but Perine looked to take a while to get to the hole.
O22 2 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Run(1) Power G 0
Lauvao and Williams (+1) double to the Will and seal out.  Davis (-1) lets his man inside and Scherff has to pick him up as he wraps through.  Davis needs to come off and try to get in the way of the Mike.
O22 3 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover 3) Single Side Post/HB Flat 22(TD)
Davis to the single side.  They send a blitz and forget to cover CT whose speed takes care of the rest.  Scherff (+0.5) slides all the way over to pick up the late blitzer (Cousins +1, Pro +1, CT Route +1)
CT’s speed and busted coverage bail us out.  Davis’ blocking still an issue but his route and speed got us 26 yards.  Scherff missed the target on his Trap pull which took away an otherwise great call.  They got us on Tight Zone out of 13 personnel, wonder if we respond with a stretch or Power play.

W25 1 10 1 1 2x2wingish Nickel Over Run(2) Tight Zone 4
We switch up from 13 and run a variation of the wing from 11.  We get a nickel front and two double teams on the DTs.  Long (+0.5) creates a seal up to the mike and for some reason Williams seals the same way.  Maybe this was a B-C gap run but initial RB path looks like A.  Paul (-0.5) gets pushed back into Perine but Lauvao (+0.5) mauls his man and creates a path for Perine to fall into

W21 3 14 1 1 3Bunchx1 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters) WR Tunnel Screen 10
OPI on Grant (-1) who should’ve left that guy for Williams.  Long can’t find his man since the run breaks further inside than it was supposed too.  Good awareness by the DE.  Pryor (-0.5) can’t latch on to the safety.  DE turned around and forced the screen further inside than what the blocks were supposed to set up.
Punt.  Lauvao’s pass pro and a false start stall this drive.

W20 1 10 1 2 2Wingx2WRH 3-4 under Run(1) Counter 2
We tip off the Counter by motioning the WR in (Playcalling -1) and the DL shifts to blow up the pullers.  They stunt the LBs and we can’t adjust.  Either Davis is supposed to let the blitzing LB go for the kick out and fight to the backside LB or Davis is supposed to pick up the stunt and that means Paul should work up to the Safety and let his DL go for kick out.  Either Davis or Paul screwed this one up by not letting a guy go for kick out.  Judging by the blocking it looks like Paul (-1) is supposed to work up to the safety and let Lauvao kick out the 7 tech inside of him.  That would’ve left Williams with a wide wrap to the LB and Perine with an outside run.
W22 2 8 -5
False Start Williams (-1)
W17 2 13 1 1 2Stackx2 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters/Sky) Corner/Flat 14
Overload blitz, Grant bends off his Corner route (Cousins +1, Pro +1, Grant route +1)
W31 1 10 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Man/Cover3) PA Wham Comeback 7
Pryor runs off the man coverage and Cousins finds him on the comeback.  (Cousins +1, Pryor Route +1, Pro -0.5). Long (-0.5) doesn’t count the numbers correctly, he has Hback help to the left and overreacts to a stunt on that side, gives up a pressure.  Play Action fooled the Linebackers (Playcalling +1)
W38 2 3 1 3 3(2Wing)x1(tight) 3-4 under Run(1) Wide Zone -3
extra TE motions over to make a 2wing surface and Williams (-1) fails to adjust his LB target.  That leaves Lauvao in a bad way and the run is blown up.
W35 3 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters) #3 Wheel/Post-Flat Inc
Wheel route acts as a pick for the inside slant.  Cousins comes off of it too soon and checks it down. (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
Punt.  PA Wham worked like a charm but the route never came open over the middle.  Williams’ false start and failing to adjust his target after the motion stall this drive.

W14 1 13 1 3 2Wingx2 3-4 under Pass(1) (Cover 3) PA Tight Zone HB Screen 6
Moses (-0.5) can’t keep inside leverage and that affects the throw as his man is in Cousins’ throwing lane.  High throw messes up the timing.   Long (-0.5) can’t seal out his man, timing for the screen was right we had them but poor blocking cost us (Playcalling +1, Pro -1)
W20 2 7 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Run(1) Pin and Pull 4
CT in the backfield, this is his goto play.  We switch it up and don’t pin the EMLOS but kick him out with the first puller, Scherff (-0.5) who can’t stay latched on.  Long also can’t get a clean block.  Matter of fact, nobody does.  Which is fine, we just need a split second inconvenience when CT has the ball.  There would’ve been an alley for six but Crowder (-1) was late off the line to get to his block and that forces CT to cut outside just enough for help to arrive.  Last time the DL was in splits this wide they slanted inside (trap play) so this was the perfect play call to answer that (Playcalling +1)
W24 3 3 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Robber/C2) In and Out Levels -9
Safeties looked to be in 2 high pre-snap then shifted and shifted again into a single high robber look which then morphed into a Cover 2 on the Fade route side.  I can’t blame cousins for holding onto the ball for an extra second (Playcalling -1).  Moses (-1) gives up the sack (Pro -0.5)
Punt.  Pryor’s dumb holding call stalls this drive.  Really good play calling on this drive but bad execution.  Raiders got us on that third down with a confusing secondary shift.

Scherff (+1) and Moses (+1) overlap block up to the LB.  Long (+1) and Lauvao double up to the mike.  Safety was playing aggressive so Grant couldn’t get to him in time or else this would’ve gotten 15.  Perine (-1) takes a hesitation step instead of just hitting the hole as fast as possible.
W37 2 1 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Run (1) Tight Zone Read 3
exact same blocking scheme with Sherff (+0.5) and Moses (+0.5) executing an overlap block and Lauvao (+0.5) and Long (+0.5) doubling to the mike.  Free hitting safety blitzes into the gap. (Playcalling +1). There has to be a deadly play action off of this.
W40 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(1) (Cover 3) C3 Hitch 11
Crowder ran his go route dangerously close to the hitch (Cousins +1, Pro +1, Playcalling +0.5)
O49 1 10 2 1 I Form 2×1 3-4 under Run(1) FB Insert Weak 8
We’ve run this a bunch of times out of the I, I’m surprised they weren’t ready for it. Scherff (+1) torques and seals, Long (+1.5) is able to grab his guy just long enough.  Moses (+0.5) kicks out and Paul (+1) targets the Will and lays a thick block on him.  Lauvao could’ve climbed up a little more quickly and Grant overruns the flat defender.  Long had a damn near impossible block but pulled it off.
O41 2 2 1 2 3(2Wing)x1 3-4 under Pass(1) (Cover 3) PA Tight Zone Curls 12
Perine falls down good grief.  Pryor adjusts his route and runs with Kirk (Cousins +1, Pryor Route +1, Perine Route -1, Pro -0.5) Long (-0.5) gets run over and forces Kirk to change the launching point.
O29 1 10 1 2 3BunchHx1 3-4 under Run(2) Tight Zone 2
Lauvao (+0.5) has double to A-gap runthrough by the LB and seals out.  Wiliiams caves in and it’s Khalil Mack versus our Tight Ends (playcalling -1).  Paul (-0.5) and Davis (-0.5) both can’t handle him also by alignment Davis is further back and we can never establish a true double team.  LB runthrough forced this play to bounce into an unfavorable matchup.
O27 2 8 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Arrow/Slant 2
Late shift from a 2-high safety look but we had the right route combo run.  Cousins throws it behind davis, also it looks like the Slant was opening up.  Protection was fine kirk could’ve waited or at least given Davis a better ball (Cousins -1, Pro +1)
O25 3 6 1 1 3Bunchx1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) Whip/Corner 6
(Crowder Route +1, Pro +1, Cousins +1) Man pass pro scheme had Long (+1) required to block two guys for an extra beat which allowed Crowder to come open.
O19 1 10 1 1 2Stackx2 Nickel Over Run(1) Power G 4
They send a safety blitz and slant away from it.  Davis (+1) is able to slow down Khalil Mack just long enough.  Moses (+1) sees the inside slant from the line and backs out the double team to the Will and shifts to the more immediate threat which was the Mike.  Lauvao (+0.5) sees the adjustment by Moses and kicks out the Safety.  Will is left unblocked because they sent 7 and we only had 6 to block.  Ryan Grant was left one on one.  (Playcalling -1) we either need to take advantage of that or leave a stud Reciever to the single side.
O15 2 6 1 1 3BunchHx1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Cover3) WR Flat -3
Kirk has Doctson one on one but doesn’t trust the matchup.  (Cousins -0.5, Pro +1)
O18 3 9 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Cover 2) TE Seam 18(TD)
Classic C2 beater.  (Cousins +1, Davis Route +1, Pro +1)
Touchdown.  We had a couple of one on ones we didn’t take advantage of.  One because of personnel and the other because kirk didn’t trust Doctson.  Davis shows again why we put up with his run blocking, that being said he handled an inside slant from Khalil Freakin Mack so maybe that problem has been corrected.

Run to the side vacated by the late safety spin (Playcalling +1).  Williams (+0.5) kicks out, Long (+1) and Lauvao (+0.5) overlap block to the Mike.  Pryor (+1) kicks out and an alley is formed.  CT (+1) had a two way go and chose the alley away from the safety.

Lauvao (+1) kicks out, Scherff (+2) turns around and seals, Pryor (+2) leads the way, CT’s speed does the rest.  Run right into the C3 corner who is vacating that area plus they had a blitz called and that eliminated the LB to that side (playcalling +1)
O49 1 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Man Free) C3 Hitch Inc
It’s too obvious at this point.  CB breaks on the ball early, Cousins had Davis on the stick route whose vertical stem backed the safety off by 3 steps plus the pre-snap cushion and backside to the near sideline was Pryor (Cousins -1, Pro +1, Davis Route +0.5)
O49 2 10 1 1 3×1 Nickel Over Run(1) Power G 4
We’ve run a draw and screen to the weakside B gap and they blitz two guys through there to take each possibility away.  We run away with a Power call (playcalling +1).  The good news is that blitz makes the line shift so that Mack can’t slant underneath Davis (+0.5) who is now afforded an easier kick out block.  Scherff recognizes the slant away and immediately goes to wall off the Will whose kamikazied his way into the backfield.  I guess he has to guard against a cutback from the Will but it really looks like he could’ve left the Will behind him and worked up to the Safety  The wall off is probably what we coached him to do.  What doesn’t make sense is Scherff (-0.5) continues to pursue the Will after the’s crossed the LOS.  He’s gotta let that go and work up to the Safety whose in the box.  Long (+0.5) down blocks and seals, Lauvao (-1.5) is blocking a guy Moses already has wtf.  Wrap through.  This slows down CT and screws up the blocking scheme.  Now CT has to widen his path into Khalil Mack.
O45 3 6 1 1 3×1 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Cover 2) Verts/Corner/TE Drag 5
TE Davis is too the single side.  He settles into a zone that’s just short of the first.  There was a Vert along the sideline open in that Cover 2 Hole.  Kirk may not have had a clear read on the Safety (Cousins -0.5, Davis Route -1, Pro +1). HB Circle was coming open too.
Attempt to draw offsides on 4th and 1 fails and we punt.  Cousins misread on 1st and 3rd down and Lauvao’s Power pull stall this drive.

Ran this same play out of this formation last half and the LBs were flowing fast towards it.  Perine (-2) misses the gap and tries to run where there is none–in between Long and the FB.  Just one gap to the left and hes breaking a long run because Scherff (+1.5) torqued and pancacked his man.  Hat placement by Paul (+0.5) and Long (+1) should’ve told Perine to cut it inside of Scherff’s left leg.
W27 2 8 1 1 3BunchHx1 Nickel Over Pass(1) (Man Free) Verts/Dig Inc
Overload blitz, either Perine or Moses slid over too far.  Protection still held for a solid 3 count.  Doctson drops it (Cousins +1, Pro +0.5, Docston Route -1)
W27 3 8 1 1 2×2 Nickel Split Pass(2) (Quarters) HB Checkdown 11

Holding on Paul (-1).  We ran tight zone from this formaiton earlier.  Lauvao catches the block after checking for A gap run through and then works up to the LB.  Doesn’t get much of a seal out either way.  Williams (+1) moves the hell out of the DL.  Davis gets worked inside but takes his man where he wants to go.  Paul can’t control Mack, same thing happened last time (playcalling -1)
W28 1 20 1 1 2×2 Nickel Over Run(1.5) Power T 0
Williams (-1) pulls and targets the wrong guy.  Mike was coming and Williams had wrap through.  Moses and Davis with kickouts.  Long works up to the LB without a double based on D alignment.  Its possible this was designed for A gap or that Williams saw enough color to get worried.

The Read this time is an Arrow route (Playcalling +0.5) as Kirk’s threat to run wasn’t enough to keep the DE honest on the last Read play.  Motioning the 2nd wing opens up the 4 tech to a 5 tech and Moses now has an easier kick out block.  Scherff (+0.5) gets some movement, Williams gets none.  Moses looks to be checking a little too hard for run through.  It costs him a decent shot at sealing out the end.

Perine (-4) takes a flat path along the LOS instead of following the FB where he might’ve seen the cutback open up inside of Moses.  Instead he pushes it outside and then tries to make the slowest cutback ever.  And then he fumbles it.  Long (-0.5) can’t keep his block or else there would’ve been a huge lane.  Moses (+0.5) pancakces on the backside.  Scherff (-1) hits the LB like he was shot out of a cannon but can’t control his block and it’s his man that causes the fumble.

Safety takes away the TE in the flat which was Cousins’ first read.  Cousins pumps to draw the LB inside and that opens up Crowder on the Drag.  (Cousins +1.5, Pro +1, Crowder Route +1)
O44 1 10 1 1 2Stackx2H Nickel Over Run(1) Pin and Pull 8
The Chris Thompson special where Williams pulls so we can maximize on CT’s speed.  Long corrected his earlier mistake versus Philly and changes his pull path to a more vertical one so he can seek out the LB.  Crowder (+1) pins Mack and Lauvao (+0.5) gets just enough of the DL. Scherff (+0.5) and Moses (+0.5) cut off backside pursuit with a reach and cut block, respectively.  Grant (+1) cracks down on the safety and this run hits the outside.  Williams (+1) kicks out his man in space and if Long could’ve reached his target this run could’ve sprung for six.  He had outside leverage with his arms but the LB was able to fight through it.

They send the safety blitz just like the last time we were in this formation.  Last time we ran Power to the blitz and didn’t have enough blockers.  Grant was one on one to the outside, this time we put Doctson out there.  This time we run zone AWAY from the blitz. (Playcalling +1).   Williams kicks out but can’t latch on  Long is able to hold onto his block just long enough for CT to run through.  Lauvao (+1) bumps long’s man over and then climbs to the second level and seals out and there is an alley.  Backside Scherff (+1) is able to seal DL pursuit and create a pile that slows down the DE slant.
O29 1 10 1 1 2x2WRH (LT Wide Split) Nickel Over Run(1) Tight Zone 11
Wide LT split is to widen out Khalil mack and prevent him from blowing this play up with an inside slant.  Crowder (+1) lead blocks downfield.  Scherff is tasked with A gap run through which means Long can punish his double team and try to get movement.  Long goes for the punishing hit but the DL slants away and now Long has to recollect himself and find the LB who is able to penetrate and force the bounce, Long (-0.5).  Moses (+1) gets movement and is able to grab the LB just long enough so the RB can hit the outside.  Davis (+1) is able to control his kick out block as he tried to disengage.  on second look, Davis totally got away with a hold.
O18 1 10 1 1 2Hx2 Nickel Even Run(1) Mid Zone 6
We’ve run trap, wham and tight zone from this formation.  Lauvao (+0.5) with a second level seal to cut off backside pursuit, at least momentarily.  Scherff (+0.5) is able to get a stiff arm on the double team before having to climb to a LB playing close the LOS with fast slow.  Long (+0.5) does as andequate job of taking over the block as the RB paused for cutback, but Williams (-0.5) couldn’t control his man and the cutback was gone, before running through playside of Long.  Moses (+1.5) with a mauling kickout on two guys.

CT lined up outside.  Cousins misses two open reads, first the slant which was his first read but he comes off it too soon.  Then he misses the flat route out the bunch.  We are up by multiple scores late in the game so I can understand the conservative/scared mindset.  (Cousins -1, Pro +1, Davis Route +1)
FG.  Cousins misread kills the drive.  Crowder and CT led the way.  Next drive is garbage time to just run out the clock, charting ceases here.
