Re: Film Study - Texans at Titans week 13
The longest passes in the half:
11:50 a 25yd pass to the TE.
This was the only one pass that Locker had a lot of time due to the PA and his rolling right toward Merci's side.
The pass was out in just over 3 secs.
Merci was the only one seeing one-on-one.
He read run first, and was looking to chase behind the LOS when he was met by the TE motioning from the other side.
He was going one way when Locker was going the other.
Here, the scheme prevented a better pass rush.
Manning was looking for an INT, but he overran the play just a hair and had to reach back.
Cook basically took the ball out of Manning's hands.
11:57 in the second.
A 5yd catch and run that turned into a 26-yd gain.
The ball was out of there in just over 1 sec.
The ball was in the receiver's hand right at 2 sec.
11:30 in the second.
A 19 yd catch with roughly the same timing.
At the 2-sec mark, the ball had traveled at least the same distance as the previous one mentioned.
7:15 in the second.
A screen pass 3-4 yards behind the LOS that turned into a 13 yd gain.
It is really difficult to hold the ball too long in the pocket with the Texans D.
