Situation: 3rd and 4 from the STL 47, 6:12 left in the 1st Quarter, tied at 0 Personnel: 21  Play: 4-vert Defense: 2-3-6 Dime, Cover-3 Zone Blitz Last Sunday marked the first time that Sam Bradford had faced a Rex Ryan defense, and the results generally did not go well. Bradford and the OL struggled to recognize where the pressure was going to come from, particularly on third downs (converting only 5 of 16). Bradford also struggled to find big plays that could beat the blitz, completing only 2 of 12 passes ten or more yards down the field.  This play in the first quarter marks the exception. The offensive line identified and picked up Ryan's rushers, and Bradford found Austin Pettis in the deepest level of the defense for a huge gain. In this week's Anatomy of a Play, we turn on the video projector once again and take you in-depth to show how this play worked.  Follow @Shields3L !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.ramsherd.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
