Maurice Jones-Drew’s long touchdown run again the Indianapolis Colts was a thing of beauty.

Coaches constantly preach that if every player does their job, the plays called will work.

Well that happened Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars’ running back sprung free in the second half.

 

 

Jones-Drew didn’t show that extra gear on the run, and he didn’t need to because of superb blocking by several players. See the full play here.

Here is a breakdown of the long touchdown run:

For starters, the Jaguars were lined up in a power-running formation with two wide receivers and Greg Jones at fullback.

Wide receiver Justin Blackmon (wide right) motions in and lines up near the right tackle before the ball is snapped.

After the snap, Jones goes right and seals off the defensive end with a hook block and lineman Mike Brewster pulls to the right, gets to the second level and seals off the linebacker.

As Jones-Drew squirts through the hole in the line, Blackmon is downfield laying down a block on safety Antoine Bethea. It wasn't a punishing block, but just enough to get Bethea moving backward and out of the play.

The play-side cornerback over pursues, coming too close to the line of scrimmage and frees up the seam for Jones-Drew to go untouched on his way to the endzone.
