Nov 17, 2016, 10:33 AM
The Seahawks allowed three rushing touchdowns to LeGarrette Blount in their win over New England Sunday night but mostly kept the Patriots running back bottled up away from the goal line, holding him to 69 yards on 21 carries. One exception was a 13-yard run that resulted in his third score.
Dave Wyman breaks that play down in the video above. He explains the concepts of leverage and spill as they pertain to setting the edge, which Seattle’s defense failed to do on Blount’s touchdown run.
