This week's X-and-O animation for the Washington Post details the long pass from Jason Campbell to Chris Cooley against the Patriots in the preseason, a play that gained 73 yards. The Redskins face the Rams this week, and they might test St. Louis with a similar type of play.
(Note: As reader "The Ninjalectual" points out below, Cooley crossed behind Tedy Bruschi on the play, but the animation shows him crossing in front. Original diagrams, and a bit more descriptive text, here.
The Patriots defense is an interesting study because like the Rams, New England has a defense that is vulnerable to the pass, but less so with tight ends than speed receivers.

UCLA linebacker Myles Jack fell out of the first round of the 2016 draft due to injury concerns. What does the FO injury database tell us about similar cases in the past?
