The beauty of the third preseason matchup is that teams actually scheme for the game, instead of simply playing in vanilla looks.
The most telling and interesting schematic revelation from the Broncos against the Washington Redskins were the few NASCAR looks Denver implemented, which—with their depth at outside linebacker—should be heavily featured in 2018.
Because of that, we went back to the tape to look at those few NASCAR sets, while also breaking down a bonus blitz package that produced a sack.
Mind you, all the NASCAR formations came in the same series, while the Redskins were trying to run a two-minute drill at the end of the half. Denver didn’t always create pressure, but they forced quick throws that ate up the clock.
