Mark Schofield’s RSP NFL Lens: Colts QB Jacoby Brissett, Frank Reich, And a Near-Perfect Drive


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.

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), pre-order the 2020  Rookie Scouting Portfolio for a discounted price of $19.95 during the early-bird period of Thursday, December 5th through Friday, December 27th.  

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2019 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.  

Best, yet, 10 percent of every sale is set aside until the RSP has reached its annual goal of donating $5,000 Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
