D-D Yard Play Formation Analysis
    HOPKINS,D. kickoff 55 yards to the ST15, Haynes, D. return 19 yards to the ST34 (SMITH,T.).   Not going to give T.J. Graham a shot
         
1-10 St34 Washington, J. rush over left guard for 4 yards to the ST38 (WILLIAMS,V.), clock 14:46.   Power play, Anthony McCloud and Brandon Jenkins both squeeze well. Vince Williams is aggressive but doesn't play correct shoulder.
2-6 St38 Glennon, M. sideline pass incomplete to Payton, Q. (DAWKINS,E.), clock 14:24.   Everett Dawkins with the great effort to bat the ball down. Fire zone.
3-6 St38 Glennon, M. middle pass incomplete to Washington, J. (BROOKS,T.), clock 14:19.   Great coverage in the secondary, particularly by Greg Reid. Terrence Brooks closes quickly on the checkdown.
    Drive: 3 plays, 4 yards, TOP 00:54   Great team defense and unselfish play.
         
4-6 St38 Baumann, W. punt 44 yards to the FS18, downed.   Excellent punt, not much to do about it.
         
1-10 Fs18 FREEMAN,D. rush up middle for 7 yards to the FS25 (Wolff, E.), clock 13:52. 22 I Inside zone to the field. Devonta Freeman good cut and hard running. Nice blocks by the center and guards.
2-3 Fs25 PRYOR,L. rush left for 5 yards to the FS30, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Manning, T.), clock 13:27. 12 gun twins field Draw to Lonnie Pryor. Excellent double team by Zebrie Sanders and Beau Reliford.
1-10 Fs30 MANUEL,E crossing pass complete to SMITH,R. for 9 yards to the FS39 (Amerson, D.), clock 12:58. 21 gun EJ works the frontside progression off three-step and hits the curl.
2-1 Fs39 PRYOR,L. rush over right guard for no gain to the FS39 (Cole, A.), clock 12:23. 21 I twins field Give to Lonnie. He missed the hole. Had it blocked to the boundary in the C gap.
3-1 Fs39 FREEMAN,D. rush over left guard for no gain to the FS39 (Kuhn, M.;Slay, B.), clock 11:55 22 I Inside zone is stuffed by an excellent play from Markus Kuhn. FSU did not come off the ball well here.
    Drive: 5 plays, 21 yards, TOP 02:43   Pretty poor opening drive.
         
4-1 Fs39 POWELL,S. punt 42 yards to the ST19, fair cch by Graham, T..   Rather be at the 19 than in the end zone. And no opportunity for return. Well done.
         
1-10 St19 Washington, J. rush over right tackle for 4 yards to the ST23 (JERNIGAN,T.;CARRADINE,C.), clock 11:05.   Cameron Erving gets blocked and Nigel Bradham is slow to react.
2-6 St23 Glennon, M. sacked for loss of 8 yards to the ST15 (CARRADINE,C.), clock 10:38.   Tremendous play by Cornellius Carradine. Destroys the offensive tackle.
3-14 St15 Glennon, M. sideline pass complete to Smith, J. for 9 yards to the ST24, out-of-bounds (REID,G.), clock 09:51.   Excellent situational football by Greg Reid. Allowing the 9-yard catch is fine on 3rd-14. Greg got him OOB. Pressure by Brandon Jenkins forced him out of the pocket and into the dump off.
    Drive: 3 plays, 5 yards, TOP 01:53   Hard to play much better defense than this.
         
4-5 St24 Baumann, W. punt 43 yards to the FS33, REID,G. return 28 yards to the ST39, out-of-bounds (Thompson, S.).   Nice return by Greg and poor tackling and coverage by N.C. State. This was more bad NCSU than it was good FSU
         
1-10 St39 MANUEL,E sideline pass complete to GREEN,C. for 32 yards to the ST7, 1ST DOWN FS (McGill, T.), clock 09:15. 11 gun Quick out to Christian Green, NCSU defender underestimates his speed, and Green shows off his talent. Ball to playmakers in space.
1-G St07 FREEMAN,D. rush option left for 7 yards to the ST0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 08:46. 11 pistol Speed option to the field. Sanders gets just enough of the backer to create the edge, gets away with a hold, EJ holds the ball very well, draws defenders, and pitches to Devonta Freeman who is in perfect position.
    HOPKINS,D. kick tempt good.    
    Florida Ste 7, NC Ste 0    
    Drive: 2 plays, 39 yards, TOP 00:48   Excellent drive using the players' skills.
         
    HOPKINS,D. kickoff 70 yards to the ST0, Graham, T. return 22 yards to the ST22 (ABRAM,C.;STEVENS,T.).   Toshmon Stevens and Chad Abram get off blocks quite well.
         
1-10 St22 Washington, J. rush over left guard for 3 yards to the ST25 (BRADHAM,N.), clock 08:28.   Dawkins loses his footing here and gets driven to the ground. And 3 yards is all NCSU can get.
2-7 St25 Creecy, T. rush over left tackle for 4 yards to the ST29 (JOYNER,L.), clock 07:52.   NCSU catches FSU in a blitz. FSU is misaligned and Vince Williams needs to be a gap closer to the strong side.
3-3 St29 Glennon, M. sideline pass complete to Palmer, T. for 4 yards to the ST33, 1ST DOWN ST (HARRIS,M.), clock 07:19.   Quick out, good throw in rhythm. Pretty tough to stop.
1-10 St33 Creecy, T. rush up middle for 2 yards to the ST35 (WERNER,B.;WILLIAMS,V.), clock 06:38.   Anthony McCloud does an excellent job handling the double v. inside zone. Vince Williams nice cleanup. Bjoern Werner too.
2-8 St35 Glennon, M. deep pass incomplete to Howard, S., clock 06:08.   Very tight coverage by Mike Harris along the sideline v. the back shoulder throw. Not a great throw.
3-8 St35 Glennon, M. crossing pass incomplete to Smith, J., clock 06:04. Injured player for FSU is #31-Brooks.   FSU comes on the blitz w/ Christian Jones. NCSU throw into ok but not great coverage. Dropped. Glennon moves well in the pocket.
    Drive: 6 plays, 13 yards, TOP 02:45   Not as good of a defensive series, but you won't catch me complaining about it.
         
4-8 St35 Baumann, W. punt 35 yards to the FS30, fair cch by REID,G..   Scared of Greg Reid.
         
1-10 Fs30 MANUEL,E screen pass complete to THOMAS,J. for 6 yards to the FS36 (Green, D.), clock 05:36. 11 gun Swing screen to Jermaine Thomas. Decent block by Jarred Haggins. EJ needs to get this ball out quicker.
2-4 Fs36 MANUEL,E screen pass incomplete to FREEMAN,D., dropped pass, clock 05:12. 20 gun pony play action screen. Played very well by NCSU and even if Freeman doesn't drop it, it's not going anywhere.
3-4 Fs36 MANUEL,E sideline pass complete to SHAW,K. for 4 yards to the FS40, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds, clock 05:07. 10 gun Quick out to Kenny Shaw, thrown in rhythm, excellent route by Shaw to the sticks.
1-10 Fs40 THOMAS,J. rush option right for 3 yards to the FS43, out-of-bounds (Cole, A.), clock 04:42. 21 I Option, FSU doesn't get this blocked well because of the NCSU blitz.
2-7 Fs43 PENALTY FS false start (J,FAHRENKRUG) 5 yards to the FS38, clock 04:12.   Ref says this was on Stork.
2-12 Fs38 MANUEL,E crossing pass complete to THOMAS,J. for 13 yards to the ST49, 1ST DOWN FS (Wolff, E.), clock 04:00. 21 gun Angle route to Jermaine Thomas. Well blocked, well ran, well thrown. Finding ways to get the ball to the middle of the field.
1-10 St49 MANUEL,E deep in pass complete to O'LEARY,N. for 25 yards to the ST24, 1ST DOWN FS (Wilson, C.), clock 03:30. 21 gun Play action, E.J. Manuel hits Nick O'Leary on the deep in cut.
1-10 St24 MANUEL,E rush right for loss of 2 yards to the ST26 (Norman, A.), clock 02:44. 10 gun trips field Called QB draw. Manuel needs to stay outside. FSU blocked it to the outside. Mental error on EJ.
2-12 St26 THOMAS,J. rush right for 1 yard to the ST25 (Norman, A.), clock 02:16. 10 gun Stretch to the boundary w/ end around motion. Bobby Hart does not seal the linebacker.
3-11 St25 MANUEL,E middle pass incomplete to GREEN,C., clock 01:42. 11 gun Protection is good, EJ rushes a throw to Christian Green. Nick O'Leary ran the wrong route and Fisher was angry. Would have been open if he ran the correct route.
4-11 St25 HOPKINS,D. field goal tempt from 43 GOOD, clock 01:37.    
    Florida Ste 10, NC Ste 0    
    Drive: 10 plays, 45 yards, TOP 04:20   Several mental errors on the drive. Not going to get it done.
         
    HOPKINS,D. kickoff 70 yards to the ST0, touchback.   Crushed this one.
         
1-10 St20 Glennon, M. rush quarterback scramble for 3 yards to the ST23 (MCALLISTER,D.), clock 01:19.   Guys getting out of their gaps trying for the sack. That's somewhat OK with an immobile QB back there.
2-7 St23 Creecy, T. rush over left guard for 8 yards to the ST31, 1ST DOWN ST (BRADHAM,N.;SMITH,T.), clock 00:52.   FSU is not lined up correctly, IMO. Just doesn't make sense. NG and DT need to be shifted at least a half gap to the strong side. Blocks for NCSU were too easy.
1-10 St31 Glennon, M. middle pass complete to Bryan, G. for 4 yards to the ST35 (JONES,C.;SMITH,T.).   Good throw into tight coverage. Can't cover everything.
         
    2nd quarter    
2-6 St35 Creecy, T. rush left for no gain to the ST35 (MCCLOUD,A.), clock 14:43.   Great job of penetration by Brandon Jenkins and Anthony McCloud.
3-6 St35 Glennon, M. sideline pass complete to Bryan, G. for 7 yards to the ST42, 1ST DOWN ST, out-of-bounds (MOODY,N.), clock 14:11.   FSU brings the blitz, Brandon Jenkins undisciplined and goes for the wrong shoulder. Needs to go for the other shoulder to keep him in the pocket.
1-10 St42 Washington, J. rush over left guard for 2 yards to the ST44 (DAWKINS,E.;WERNER,B.), clock 13:38.   Nice run defense by Werner. Controlling the blocker.
2-8 St44 Glennon, M. wide receiver screen pass complete to Graham, T. for 17 yards to the FS39, 1ST DOWN ST (HARRIS,M.;WERNER,B.), clock 13:02.   Bubble screen, nice block on Mike Harris. Best play of the day for NCSU.
1-10 Fs39 Washington, J. rush right for 7 yards to the FS32 (RHODES,X.), clock 12:19.   I don't think FSU is lined up correctly here. Seems they are out-gapped from the start. Very strange.
2-3 Fs32 Glennon, M. sideline pass complete to Underwood, B. for 3 yards to the FS29, 1ST DOWN ST (REID,G.), clock 11:44.   Good tackle by Greg Reid. Very tough to stop. Sticks moving video!!!! What the heck are they doing? Cheating?
1-10 Fs29 Timeout NC Ste, clock 11:22.    
1-10 Fs29 Washington, J. rush left for 1 yard to the FS28 (BRADHAM,N.;HICKS,D.), clock 11:06.   Good leverage on the outside run by Dan Hicks.
2-9 Fs28 Glennon, M. deep pass incomplete. Official Review: Call on field is an interception. Official Review: Call is overturned. Incomplete pass.   Excellent pressure off the backside by Jenkins and Joyner almost has an interception inbounds. Think Glennon tried to throw this away maybe? Weird play by Glennon.
3-9 Fs28 PENALTY ST false start (Mtes, R.) 5 yards to the FS33, clock 10:41.    
3-14 Fs33 Glennon, M. crossing pass incomplete to Creecy, T. (BROOKS,T.), clock 10:37.   Tremendous coverage all around on this play. Literally every man was blanketed. Terrence Brooks excellent job to change direction on the angle route.
4-14 Fs33 Sade, N. field goal tempt from 51 MISSED - short, spot FS34, clock 10:32.    
    Drive: 13 plays, 47 yards, TOP 06:05   By not allowing the big play, FSU made NCSU try to repeatedly execute. Not many teams can do that against a defense of this quality.
         
1-10 Fs34 MANUEL,E sideline pass complete to REED,B. for 8 yards to the FS42, out-of-bounds (Wilson, C.), clock 10:23. 00 gun Don't like EJ's awareness here re: the blitz. Don't like the blitz pickup by the left side (LT needs to fan out and LG needs to take the end). Great job by Bert Reed to make people miss.
2-2 Fs42 MANUEL,E bubble screen pass complete to SMITH,R. for 9 yards to the ST49, 1ST DOWN FS (Amerson, D.), clock 10:00. 21 gun twins Bubble to the field, well thrown by EJ. Bert Reed decent block. Excellent awareness to pic up an uncontested 9 yards.
1-10 St49 MANUEL,E sacked for loss of 4 yards to the FS47 (Sweezy, J.), clock 09:18. 21 gun twins 1. EJ should have checked to the run here, I think. 2. Poor job by Garrett Faircloth, doesn't handle the twist.
2-14 Fs47 MANUEL,E deep out pass complete to REED,B. for 18 yards to the ST35, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Johnson, D.), clock 08:48. 10 gun tight twins field Smash combo, good route, excellent throw and anticipation by EJ. Better job handling the twist this time.
1-10 St35 MANUEL,E wide receiver screen pass complete to REED,B. for 14 yards to the ST21, 1ST DOWN FS (Bishop, B.;Slay, B.), clock 08:24. 10 gun Quick bubble to the boundary. Throw for 4, Bert got the extra 10 with his legs. Easy yards v. favorable alignment. All mental. And good throw.
1-10 St21 MANUEL,E sacked for loss of 2 yards to the ST23 (Manning, T.), clock 07:48. 10 gun Line protects to the right, so the free rusher is on EJ. He spins out of it, doesn't find anybody, but then doesn't throw it away. Dumb to take a two-yard loss here.
2-12 St23 THOMAS,J. rush option right for 15 yards to the ST8, 1ST DOWN FS (Cole, A.), clock 07:23. 11 pistol Speed option to the field. Hart and Faircloth control the man, but neither climbs. O'Leary decent job to ride the rusher out. This is all Manuel, as he rides the hole, then sees Thomas is still in position (good job) for the pitch.
1-G St08 PRYOR,L. rush over left tackle for 8 yards to the ST0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 06:57. 21 gun twins field Stretch to Lonnie Pryor to the field. Zebrie and Fahrenkrug don't get off the double, but Stork has an excellent block. Rodney Smith high, high effort block to get the backer. Lonnie Pryor with some very tough running and N.C. State with some piss poor tackling. Good effort by Lonnie.
    HOPKINS,D. kick tempt good.    
    Florida Ste 17, NC Ste 0    
    Drive: 8 plays, 66 yards, TOP 03:40   FSU scored, but this drive was far from perfect.
         
    HOPKINS,D. kickoff 53 yards to the ST17, Haynes, D. return 12 yards to the ST29 (HARRIS,M.), PENALTY ST illegal block 10 yards to the ST19, 1st and 10, ST ball on ST19.   Just trying to keep it away from Harris?
         
1-10 St19 Washington, J. rush up middle for 5 yards to the ST24 (STEVENS,T.;BRADHAM,N.), clock 06:38.   Either Nigel Bradham or Tim Jernigan get out of their gap against this inside zone run.
2-5 St24 Washington, J. rush up middle for loss of 2 yards to the ST22 (JERNIGAN,T.), clock 06:01.   The burst Timmy Jernigan gets here off the ball is just insane. Warren Sapp?
3-7 St22 Glennon, M. sacked for loss of 3 yards to the ST19 (HARRIS,M.), clock 05:17.   Zone blitz, rush 5 cover with 6, bringing the nickelback from the field, makes Glennon pump the ball and gives the DB time to make the sack. Excellent play design and unselfish plays by Bjoern Werner and Nigel Bradham to occupy blockers and not try for the sack. They occupied the blocks while Harris came in unblocked.
    Drive: 3 plays, 0 yards, TOP 02:02    
         
4-10 St19 Baumann, W. punt 24 yards to the ST43, downed. Ball was ruled to have hit an NC Ste player the 50, bounced back.   This punt hits FSU, but the refs said it was recovered by FSU. The NCSU player comes out of the pile with the ball. ACC Officiating, everybody! I guess they say it hit an NCSU player or that the FSU player was pushed into the ball?
         
1-10 St43 FREEMAN,D. rush up middle for loss of 2 yards to the ST45 (Cole, A.), PENALTY FS holding (HART,B.) 11 yards to the FS46, NO PLAY. 10 pistol I don't see the holding on Hart, but the angle is tough. Play is stretch to the boundary and Hart is cut blocking. He may have grabbed the guy by the ankles.
1-21 Fs46 MANUEL,E pass incomplete (Kuhn, M.). 21 gun Angle route, same play ran to Jermaine earlier. Manuel tries to hit Freeman and the NCSU dlineman gets his hands up.
2-21 Fs46 MANUEL,E deep in pass incomplete to SHAW,K., clock 04:18. 10 gun tight Kenny Shaw is wide open on the deep cross and EJ makes a terrible throw. Wind was likely a factor here. Good scramble, poor throw.
3-21 Fs46 MANUEL,E sacked for loss of 1 yard to the FS45 (Kuhn, M.), clock 04:12. 10 gun tight Faircloth with a total whiff on the blitzing backer from the 3-4 alignment. EJ scrambles to the sideline and takes an unnecessary hit. Dumb.
    Drive: 3 plays, minus 12 yards, TOP 01:06   Not the best of drives. NCSU did play better, however, and it wasn't all FSU mental errors.
         
4-22 Fs45 POWELL,S. punt 49 yards to the ST6, downed.   Not a great punt. NCSU should have caught the punt and not let it bounce.
         
1-10 St06 Glennon, M. middle pass complete to Purvis, T. for 3 yards to the ST9 (MOODY,N.), clock 03:24.   Very short crossing route to the backup tight end.
2-7 St09 Glennon, M. middle pass incomplete to Washington, J., QB hurry by WERNER,B., clock 03:02.   Tremendous rush by Jenkins and Werner, Glennon flips it wildly to the back.
3-7 St09 Glennon, M. crossing pass complete to Palmer, T. for 9 yards to the ST18, 1ST DOWN ST (HARRIS,M.), clock 02:55.   FSU in cover-2 and NCSU hits a crosser to the speedy slot guy. Very nice play by Glennon.
1-10 St18 Washington, J. rush up middle for 1 yard to the ST19 (MCCLOUD,A.;JONES,C.), clock 02:41.   Draw, good block shedding by Dawkins.
2-9 St19 Timeout Florida Ste, clock 02:41.   Jimbo being aggressive. Good job, coach.
2-9 St19 Glennon, M. sideline pass incomplete to Smith, J. (HARRIS,M.), clock 02:37.   Glennon rifles the 10-yard out to the boundary and Harris makes a great play to swat it.
3-9 St19 PENALTY ST false start (Washington, J.) 5 yards to the ST14, clock 02:37.   Surprisingly good crowd for FSU with parent's weekend.
3-14 St14 Glennon, M. crossing pass complete to Palmer, T. for 15 yards to the ST29, 1ST DOWN ST (HARRIS,M.), clock 02:30.   Either FSU is in Zone and Nick Moody messes up, or FSU is in man and Christian Jones gets picked. Can't really tell because I can't see the remaining coverage. I lean towards zone because I don’t think FSU would want Christian Jones manned up on a slot.
1-10 St29 Glennon, M. post pass intercepted by RHODES,X. the FS26, RHODES,X. return 0 yards to the FS26.   Really a bad decision by Glennon to throw at Xavier Rhodes and Lamarcus Joyner. Excellent job of those two to bracket the receiver step for step.
    Drive: 7 plays, 23 yards, TOP 01:28   Really not bad defense here, NCSU just hit some stuff.
         
1-10 Fs26 MANUEL,E screen pass complete to THOMAS,J. for 6 yards to the FS32, out-of-bounds (Cole, A.), clock 02:05. 10 gun Swing screen to the field. Excellent block by Green
2-4 Fs32 MANUEL,E slant pass complete to SHAW,K. for 7 yards to the FS39, 1ST DOWN FS (Wolff, E.), clock 01:46. 10 gun Double slants, good job by the offensive line to cut, Manuel double clutches but puts it on Shaw.
1-10 Fs39 MANUEL,E sideline pass complete to SHAW,K. for 6 yards to the FS45, out-of-bounds, clock 01:39. 10 gun NCSU has 13 players on the field, not called. But EJ hits Shaw on the easy hitch.
2-4 Fs45 MANUEL,E sideline pass complete to SHAW,K. for 5 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds, clock 01:35. 10 gun Same play, good job on blitz pickup. Accurate ball by EJ. Very nice.
1-10 Fs50 MANUEL,E flag pass incomplete to REED,B., clock 01:31. 10 gun EJ was late on the smash combo, think he realized he missed the window and threw it away.
2-10 Fs50 MANUEL,E screen pass complete to THOMAS,J. for 32 yards to the ST18, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds, clock 01:20. 10 gun Beautiful screen, well times, Thomas with the decent fake block, Zebrie Sanders excellent block, accurate ball, Thomas good vision, Rodney Smith huge block.
1-10 St18 MANUEL,E wide receiver screen pass complete to REED,B. for loss of 2 yards to the ST20 (Smith, R.), clock 01:09. Injured player for FSU is #83-Reed. 10 gun Bubble to the wrong side! Bert Reed gets crushed and gave EJ a piece of his mind for throwing it to the wrong side. No idea what EJ saw here.
2-12 St20 MANUEL,E post pass complete to SHAW,K. for 20 yards to the ST0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:54. 10 gun Good protection, EJ excellent throw, Shaw tremendous route to drive the safety, and it would have been wide, wide open if Christian Green doesn't run the incorrect route to unnecessarily draw the defender close to Shaw.
    HOPKINS,D. kick tempt good.    
    Florida Ste 24, NC Ste 0    
    Drive: 8 plays, 74 yards, TOP 01:28   Excellent drive. Sharp mentally and took care of business.
         
    HOPKINS,D. kickoff 60 yards to the ST10, Graham, T. return 13 yards to the ST23 (ABRAM,C.).   High kick, well done.
         
1-10 St23 Creecy, T. rush left for 2 yards to the ST25 (WILLIAMS,V.;HARRIS,M.), clock 00:32.   The entire defensive line is stout and Williams quickly fills.
2-8 St25 Washington, J. rush for 2 yards to the ST27 (HARRIS,M.).   Mike Harris reads this well.
3-6 St27 End of half, clock 00:00.    
    Drive: 2 plays, 4 yards, TOP 00:48    
    Florida Ste 24, NC Ste 0  

Second Half

D-D Yard Play Formation Analysis
    Sade, N. kickoff 30 yards to the FS40, out-of-bounds, FS ball on FS40.   out of bounds? FSU will take it.
         
1-10 Fs40 MANUEL,E rush quarterback scramble for 5 yards to the FS45, out-of-bounds (Cole, A.), clock 14:51. 21 i twins field Play action, EJ has someone deep but doesn't pull the trigger, Stork doesn't hold his block, EJ scrambles out of it. -1 to both Stork and EJ (for not throwing it)
2-5 Fs45 PRYOR,L. rush left for 10 yards to the ST45, 1ST DOWN FS (Wolff, E.), clock 14:24. 21 gun twins field Very interesting misdirection read look that is simply a give to Lonnie Pryor. Excellent block by Fahrenkrug.
1-10 St45 MANUEL,E rush for loss of 8 yards to the FS47, fumble by MANUEL,E recovered by FS TEAM FS47, out-of-bounds. 21 i twins field Swing screen to Freeman, has a huge run if thrown accurately, but throw is horrible. Footwork poor, way over his head
2-18 Fs47 MANUEL,E screen pass complete to FREEMAN,D. for 17 yards to the ST36 (Bishop, B.;Sweezy, J.), clock 13:32. 10 gun tight RB screen, well executed. Nice blocks by Hart and Fahrenkrug. Good vision by Freeman

1-10 St34 MANUEL,E throw away pass incomplete, QB hurry by Sweezy, J.. 21 gun Stork/Fahrenkrug do not handle a slant here well at all and turn a DT loose. Unacceptable. EJ throws it away.
2-10 St34 MANUEL,E slant pass incomplete to SMITH,R., clock 12:53. 10 gun trips field Middle screen, beautifully drawn up and blocked. EJ Manuel poor throw. Needs to be thrown in stride. Still, Rodney must catch this

1-15 St28 FREEMAN,D. rush left for loss of 1 yard to the ST29 (Manning, T.), clock 11:51. 11 pistol trups field Stretch to the field. Stork gets held by the nose guard and cannot get to the backer who makes the tackle. Freeman should make him miss. Otherwise, well blocked.
2-16 St29 MANUEL,E crossing pass intercepted by Manning, T. the ST20, Manning, T. return 3 yards to the ST23 (REED,B.) (Wolff, E.). 11 gun Manuel throws the in cut to Smith. Rodney needs to catch the football. Poor concentration on his part. Decent protection.

1-10 St23 Glennon, M. bubble screen pass complete to Graham, T. for 1 yard to the ST24 (JOYNER,L.), clock 10:58.   Tremendous play on the bubble by Lamarcus.
