Play of the Day: Goal Line Sneak Flat

Today’s Play of the Day is from Illinois.

They line up in 30 or 21 personnel (depends if you consider the Y sniffer a Back or a TE) and run split zone action. They’d run split zone action earlier in the red zone. This time however the Y bypasses the TE to “sneak” to the flat. The backs criss cross with the left back coming across the formation to get a second route into the flat should the first flat route be covered. There’s an added “Rub” element to the play with the single WR working inside to pull his corner with him as well as create a natural rub for any one covering man to man out of the backfield. Could do this as an RPO but I think this is a called play action with how flat the OL stays.
