The latest strategy analysis from our friend William Krasker looks at Houston's fake field goal against Jacksonville, Tennessee's first half-ending touchdown attempt, and Detroit's unfortunate choice to go for it on 4th-and-1 at the Dallas 37-yard line with 11:44 remaining. Right choice, stupid play by center Dominic Raiola, who tried to draw an offsides and ended up getting Joey Harrington hammered.
The Vikings' quarterback seemed to regress in his second season. Did that tell us more about the player, or the Minnesota offensive scheme?
