Jake Heaps’ Film Room: Why play-action pass is major key for Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks have shown a renewed emphasis on their run game this season, with Chris Carson and Mike Davis each providing a 100-yard rushing effort over the past two weeks. But with opposing teams expecting more run plays out of Seattle, it’s important for the Seahawks to take advantage of the opportunities it creates.
And that’s where the play-action pass comes in.
This week in Jake Heaps’ Film Room, the former Seahawks quarterback breaks down a few plays from last Sunday’s 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals that shows how Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense can use play-action not just to keep defenses from keying in on the run but also produce some positive gains downfield.
