Having picked on the Jets for their Pistol play, I give them props for a 3rd-and-3 sweep here. Also, some double-move love for both the Bears and the Seahawks.

Apparently MSNBC doesn't have good web page writers. Graphics on page 3 are a mess - photo overlapping the play diagram. (Problem with both Firefox and Chrome and no, I'm not going to use Explorer.)
Use Safari. Click the "Reader" button. Everything disappears but the good stuff. And it's all on one nice long page.
"The formation shown in Figure 2 has a variety of names — the diamond, the inverted wishbone, or just the full house. Fullbacks John Kuhn (30) and Quinn Johnson (44) give rookie running back James Starks (45) a great escort of blockers."
You have mixed up the numbers for Johnson and Starks. Johnson is 45 and Starks is 44. The diagram has the correct numbers.
Good, good stuff.
Sweet: Bonus Tanier! This article is excellent.
Wait, the Bears and the Seahawks are in the playoffs? You're making that up, right?
You mean the Bears, who are seventh in weighted DVOA? Yeah, what a joke they're in the playoffs!
Jalen Hurts and Alabama square off against Trevor Knight and Texas A&M in the biggest game of the weekend.
