Wyman’s Football 101: Why Seahawks didn’t stop Ravens on 4th down TD run
There’s an interesting backstory to the play. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh originally decided to send his kicking team out to attempt a short field goal, and Jackson wanted to go for it. Jackson pleaded his case, as John Clayton details in this post, so the Ravens called a timeout and drew up a play.
What about that play worked? In this week’s Football 101, Seahawks radio color commentator and former NFL linebacker Dave Wyman breaks down how the Ravens were able to load up on one side of the line of scrimmage to create the push Jackson needed to break free. Wyman also shows how a young member of Seattle’s defense could have had a shot at tackling Jackson if not for a small miscalculation.
