NY Times Film Study, Week 3: LaRon Landry Pick Six
Almost everything I post here is Cowboys coverage. This isn’t. Deal with it.
In my weekly film breakdown series at the New York Times, I posted analysis of LaRon Landry’s pick six against the Dolphins.
One of Ryan’s creative schemes was on display to start the third quarter in the Jets’ overtime win in Miami on Sunday. On the second play coming out of halftime, the Dolphins faced a second-and-10 at their 6-yard line. They lined up with base 21 personnel — two running backs, a tight end and two receivers — in a formation known as Weak Right.
Above, I’ve labeled the Jets defenders who were in coverage on the play. Those in man coverage — cornerbacks Revis and Antonio Cromartie — are labeled in red. Those in zone coverage — safeties Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry, inside linebacker David Harris, and outside linebackers Garrett McIntyre and Calvin Pace — are in yellow. The unmarked players — the three down-linemen and inside linebacker Bart Scott — rushed the quarterback on the play.
