Re: Film Study - Texans at Titans week 13
With Barwin, Watt, and Merci collapsing the pocket from 3 sides, Locker had to dump the ball at the foot of the RB; Dobbins was right on top of him, a completion would have been for a loss.
Watt and Merci did enough (within 3 sec) to force Locker to go the TE (just 3 yards from LOS).
Dobbins broke up the pass.
If he was looking for the ball, he may have a pick six there.
1-10 Mitchell batted down a pass.
11:30 Locker completed a 19yd pass to Washington.
Antonio was pushing the pocket hard.
Ball arrived IN receiver's hands at the 2-sec mark.
Pass deflected by Cody, intercepted by Dobbins.
6:39 Locker sacked by Watt for -6
Locker saw Merci and stepped up in the pocket.
Crick then helped Watt get his sack.
6:02 Next play.
Smith sacked Locker; Barwin pushed the edge (no escape route).
Offsetting penalty nullified the sack, however.
3:18 Incompletion to Wright (Harris was called for 5-yd illegal contact.)
Merci beat his man; his hand almost got to the ball as Locker released it.
2:36 Watt credited with a QB Hit and hurry as Locker hurried an incompletion.
Rudd blew up the double team (a lineman and the RB).
If Locker decided to retreat, Barwin and/or Merci would have had a sack here.
2:31 Incompletion to Williams.
Titans rolled out their QB, but with Merci threatening, Locker threw the ball away.
(they did this a few times already to alleviate pressure;
they also used quick passes and screens for the same reason.)
I will make a note to try to remember to watch the All 22 when it comes out
to see how close Merci was to the QB.
With Antonio taking on the double-team, Watt pushed his man right into Locker.
He was able to complete a quick pass for 7 yards to the TE Cook, however.
Watt was called for a hand in the face mask.
:22 Texans collapsed the pocket.
Locker tried to escape, but Merci quickly disengaged from his man to get the sack.
With Antonio threatened to get into his face, Locker started to get happy-feet;
luckily he found the RB for 3 yards (pass was a little behind; good job by CJ).
The double-team held off Antonio, but Locker couldn't count on it, he just had to get rid of the ball quickly.
Interception by Quin.
Barwin beat his man to the inside; he got credited for a QB Hit;
Watt deflected the ball.
