In the 3 WR package, with Clark on the LOS, he worked inside on LB Cushing; While Cushing didn’t necessarily play Clark man-to-man, he had to match up based on matchup zone concepts

  • Week 9 story lines October 31, 2014
    Here are the top stories I will be following in Week Nine of the NFL. Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2) Can Denard Robinson continue to produce behind a bad OL?
