Play of the Day: TE Throwback Screen

Today’s Play of the Day comes is a Tight End Throwback Screen from Indiana.

Indiana starts in a 3×1 FIB (Formation Into Boundary) condensed set with the RB cheated out to the field. The slot WR runs across the formation in deep motion with the QB faking to him and continuing to semi roll to the field.

The motion, RB alignment, and QB path all attract the defense’s eyeballs and you can see most of the defense pursuing to the wide side of the field. The #1 works inside to crack/seal the inside backer while the corner actually begins to follow him across the formation expecting a drag route and roll out. The LT & LG work inside showing a zone or slide look then leak out to the flat to lead block for the throwback screen.
