Playbook: Detroit Lions

Formation: Dollar 3-2-6

Play: Overload 3 Seam

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Slant inside the defensive line

Overview: This play blitzes 5 people and the cornerback is going to come in untouched with a direct angle to the QB. Sub in a fast corner and it will make the blitz even faster giving your opponent less time to make a decision.

Setup:

  2. Press Coverage
  3. Spread the defensive line
  4. Slant inside the defensive line

Overview: Here we are sending six people on a blitz. However, in doing so we are getting two corners coming untouched at the QB. Even if your opponent blocks an extra guy at least one person will still come in free.

Setup:

  1. Base Align
  2. Press Coverage (Optional)
  3. Adjust zones accordingly to your opponent

Overview: This is a very effective coverage defense to mix in against your opponent from this formation. We have sent a lot of heat in previous plays so mixing it up with this defense can force your opponent to throwing a quick pass thinking a blitz is coming.
