Broncos Run Game Breakdown – Week 11

So each week I’ve decide to break down about three to six rushing plays for the game that week so we can see how the offensive line, tight ends and running backs did that week. To do this I’ll take all the plays and randomly select three plays and add more depending on the time. I’ll take these plays and break them down using clippings from the game. For each play we will start with the down and distance, the personnel formation and grouping as well as the result of the play. We will also break the play into parts, the pre-play, mid-play, and the end. To get a better view of the image just click on it, it will open in a new tab. This will be the first running breakdown I do this season.

Play 1

– Down and Distance: 1st and 10
– Personnel: 3 WR, 1 TE (lined up at FB), 1 RB

End Play:

In the end the play fails almost immediately as OT Franklin failed to successfully complete his pull due to Vasquez initially getting pushed backwards into OT Orlando Franklin and then OT Chris Clark‘s failing to hang onto Hali leads to RB Knowshon Moreno being wrapped by by two Chiefs players.

Did Well:
– TE Thomas
– OG Beadles
– C Ramirez

Did Poorly:
– OT Franklin
– OG Vasquez
– OT Clark

Play 2

– Down and Distance: 1st and 10
– Personnel: 2 WR, 2 TE, 1 RB

The moment this play broke was when OG Manny Ramirez got pushed back into the rushing lane, luckily another lane opened but the failures of OT Clark and OT Franklin to hold their men lead to RB Moreno being tackles from behind.

Did Well:
– TE Thomas
– OG Beadles
– OG Vasquez
– TE Green
– RB Moreno

Did Poorly:
– OT Franklin
– OT Clark
– C Ramirez

Play 3

– Down and Distance: 1st and 10
– Personnel: 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB
– Result: 11 Yard Gain

End Play:

This is a great example of the offensive line and play calling lining up and executing well for the most part. The only thing that stopped this from being a bigger play was Vasquez losing his defender and then failing to pickup the safety, instead he falls down.

Did Well:
– OG Beadles
– OT Clark
– TE Thomas
– RB Moreno

Did Poorly:
– OG Vasquez
– C Ramirez

Play 4

– Down and Distance: 2nd and 7
– Personnel: 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB
– Result: 6 Yard Gain

Pre-Play:

Mid-Play:

Then

Then

End Play:

Den-KC Run MB 1 End Edit

OG Vasquez’s decision to not break away from assisting OT Franklin to help C Ramirez in blocking downfield lead to the first hit on the runner but it was Clark not following through on his blocks that lead to RB Montee Ball being taken down from behind Tamba Hali.

Did Well:
– OG Beadles
– C Ramirez
– RB M. Ball

Did Poorly:
– OG Vasquez
-OT Clark

Wrapping Up

The tackles really struggled this game, as did OG Louis Vasquez. Both running backs played very well, often making plays when their running lanes are either filled or blocked.
