After breaking down film, Scouts Inc. gives its take on what to watch in the NFL this weekend:
Inside the New York Jets' run game
On film, this appears to be the most well-coached and technically sound run game in the NFL with RBs LaDainian Tomlinson and Shonn Greene behind a big and powerful offensive line. The guys up front are excellent one-on-one blockers at the point of attack, but they also do an underrated job of sliding off those initial blocks to get to the second level and create another block. They also use their fullback well to lead through the hole. They are good at using misdirection and play fakes to take defenders out of the hole. Both backs are patient. They allow those blocks to form. Both know how to press the hole before they make their cut. This is a run game that will even get better in future weeks.
