The Houston Texans are alone in first place in the AFC South. Derrik Klassen shows how offensive coordinator Tim Kelly used pistol formations to get the most out of Tyrod Taylor's athletic ability, while mixing up calls and tendencies to keep the Jaguars defense off-balance.
While the Bucs' rush got a lot of the headlines after Tampa Bay's win in the Super Bowl, Derrik Klassen shows how linebackers Devin White and Lavonte David deserve just as much credit for what they did in zone coverage against Kansas City's most dangerous receivers.
