RSP contributor Mark Schofield breaks down an excellent scoring drive that highlights the schematic and personnel strengths of the Indianapolis Colts offense, headed by quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
I love studying offensive drives. You could even say I wrote the book about them a few years ago. That is why I loved studying the completion of this scoring drive from the Indianapolis Colts against the Houston Texans. Using a variety of concepts and personnel packages, Reich and the Colts were able to keep the Texans’ defense guessing.
In this video I breakdown how the Colts were able to use formations, personnel, route concepts, and play-action to keep the Texans defense guessing:
Many tried to write the Colts off when Andrew Luck announced his retirement. But with an improved defense, the play-calling of Reich and the execution from Brissett, Indianapolis has stayed right in the thick of things in the AFC South. With their ability to keep defenses guessing like this, they should stay right in the think of the playoff hunt as the season rolls on.
