First quarter review is here.
2-2-CAR 24 (15:00) T.Hightower right end to CAR 24 for no gain (D.Connor; G.Hardy).
The LDT gets under Cook’s pads (not that hard to do) on the zone run and easily slides down the line to fill the hole.
3-2-CAR 24 (14:27) T.Hightower left tackle to CAR 21 for 3 yards (D.Connor, A.Applewhite).
1-10-CAR 21 (13:48) J.Beck scrambles right end to CAR 14 for 7 yards (S.Martin).
After running a route into the flat Darrel Young turns back and takes out not one but two defenders to allow Beck to turn the corner on his scramble.
2-3-CAR 14 (13:15) T.Hightower left guard to CAR 13 for 1 yard (D.Connor).
A hole opens between Chester and Cook, but no one is available to get a hat on the MLB.
3-2-CAR 13 (12:32) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass incomplete short left to J.Gaffney (T.Williams).
Beck stares down Gaffney so the LB reads his eyes and jumps underneath the slant.
4-2-CAR 13 (12:28) G.Gano 31 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-N.Sundberg, Holder-S.Rocca.
WAS 3 CAR 3, 12 plays, 74 yards, 2 penalties, 6:04 drive, 2:36 elapsed
G.Gano kicks 69 yards from WAS 35 to CAR -4. K.Pilares to CAR 11 for 15 yards (L.Alexander).
PENALTY on CAR-T.Williams, Offensive Holding, 5 yards, enforced at CAR 11.
Carolina Panthers at 12:24
1-10-CAR 6 (12:24) J.Stewart up the middle to CAR 13 for 7 yards (L.Fletcher).
Rocky redirects the play inside by blowing up the lead FB, but Nield gets pushed off the line by a double team and the RG is able to get a hat on Fletcher.
2-3-CAR 13 (11:45) J.Stewart left end pushed ob at CAR 42 for 29 yards (J.Wilson).
Landry lines up to the offensive left but blitzes through the B gap, so when he loses discipline and breaks to the inside where theTE seals him there is no one else to deny the corner. Wilson and Fletcher would have been in position to make it to the sideline and prevent a big game but both bite on the RB’s initial step and can’t recover when he cuts towards the sideline.
1-10-CAR 42 (11:00) D.Williams right tackle to CAR 47 for 5 yards (R.Kerrigan; R.McIntosh).
2-5-CAR 47 (10:18) (Shotgun) C.Newton sacked at CAR 39 for -8 yards (A.Carriker).
I have no idea what the RT is doing here. Cofield is head up on the center, so if they want to double him the RG can help out. But despite not having a TE next to him he completely ignores Carriker, who gets a free shot at Cam.
3-13-CAR 39 (9:38) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass deep right to S.Smith ran ob at WAS 44 for 17 yards.
Rob Jackson meets the LT in the backfield, lifts him off the ground, and then blows by him to hit Cam, but the ball is already out. Hall is playing very soft on Steve Smith’s corner route and Doughty, who lined up at the LOS to feign a blitz, isn’t fast enough getting back to take the underneath coverage.
1-10-WAS 44 (9:08) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass short left to S.Smith to WAS 23 for 21 yards (R.McIntosh).
Smith takes the pass on the screen. The playside WR turns Barns to the outside and the LT gets downfield and blows away Wilson.
1-10-WAS 23 (8:36) (Shotgun) J.Stewart right guard to WAS 23 for no gain (K.Golston).
Golston is at RDT in the four man nickel front and plays perfect two-gap defense, holding the LG at the line and then shedding to make the stop.
2-10-WAS 23 (7:57) C.Newton pass short left to J.Shockey to WAS 11 for 12 yards (R.Doughty).
Orakpo’s eyes get big when he blows past the TE, and although he was let by intentionally to set up the screen he almost gets there so quickly that he blows it up anyway. But Cam barely gets the ball out and the LT manhandles Fletcher to open up the big gain.
1-10-WAS 11 (7:11) D.Williams up the middle to WAS 11 for no gain (R.Kerrigan).
Orakpo (play side) and Kerrigan (back side) each blow up their TE’s to stuff the run.
2-10-WAS 11 (6:28) (Shotgun) C.Newton sacked at WAS 18 for -7 yards (B.Orakpo).
Timeout #1 by CAR at 05:49.
3-17-WAS 18 (5:49) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass short left to L.Naanee to WAS 12 for 6 yards (K.Barnes).
The LTE releases directly into a route while the LT blocks Golston despite the fact that this leaves the LG with nothing to do. Oops. Orakpo gets a straight shot.
4-11-WAS 12 (5:11) O.Mare 30 yard field goal is GOOD, NULLIFIED by Penalty, Center-J.Jansen, Holder-J.Baker.
PENALTY on CAR-B.Hartsock, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at WAS 12 - No Play.
4-21-WAS 22 (5:06) O.Mare 40 yard field goal is GOOD, NULLIFIED by Penalty, Center-J.Jansen, Holder-J.Baker.
PENALTY on CAR-R.Wells, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at WAS 22 - No Play.
4-26-WAS 27 (5:06) O.Mare 45 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Jansen, Holder-J.Baker.
WAS 3 CAR 6, 12 plays, 67 yards, 7:22 drive, 9:58 elapsed
O.Mare kicks 65 yards from CAR 35 to end zone, Touchback.
Washington Redskins at 5:02
1-10-WAS 20 (5:02) T.Hightower left end to WAS 23 for 3 yards (D.Butler).
Davis and Chester get good second level blocks. Locklear is also able to slide downfield since Montgomery is able to slow the LDE down the line, but he doesn’t see the playside CB as the next person who needs to be blocked.
2-7-WAS 23 (4:29) T.Hightower right tackle to WAS 23 for no gain (D.Connor).
The outside zone collapses as Davis gets driven four yards back, so both Young and Hightower cut inside. A slim hole opens but Hightower is tripped up by traffic (namely the DT going to the ground under Cook’s block) and he stumbles into the LB who Young had sought out at the second level.
3-7-WAS 23 (3:55) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass short left to A.Armstrong to WAS 32 for 9 yards (D.Butler).
PENALTY on CAR-C.Munnerlyn, Face Mask (15 Yards), 15 yards, enforced at WAS 32.
1-10-WAS 47 (3:35) T.Hightower right end to WAS 48 for 1 yard (J.Anderson).
Brown is manhandled by the LDE, who first forces Hightower wide and then sheds the block to get hands on him and slow him around the corner.
2-9-WAS 48 (3:06) J.Beck pass incomplete short right to J.Gaffney. Timeout #1 by WAS at 03:02.
Gaffney curls inside, Beck throws outside.
3-9-WAS 48 (3:02) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass short middle to J.Gaffney to CAR 34 for 18 yards (S.Martin).
This is the sort of mobility that often goes unnoticed. Pressure comes up the middle – there’s no outright penetration but the entire offensive line gets pushed into Beck’s face, I think that in this situation Rex would stand his ground and try to force a throw over the scrum in front of him, probably resulting in a tip. Beck slides to his right – nothing dramatic just a couple quick steps – and steps into a nice throw over the middle to Gaffney.
1-10-CAR 34 (2:23) T.Hightower left end to CAR 26 for 8 yards (D.Connor).
PENALTY on CAR-S.Fua, Defensive Offside, 5 yards, enforced at CAR 34 - No Play.
1-5-CAR 29 (2:04) T.Hightower right end to CAR 26 for 3 yards (G.Hardy). Two-Minute Warning
Montgomery can’t get to his second level block so the MLB has a bead on Hightower in the backfield, but a hard cut inside salvages a few yards.
2-2-CAR 26 (1:59) J.Beck pass incomplete short middle [G.Hardy].
PENALTY on WAS-J.Beck, Intentional Grounding, 11 yards, enforced at CAR 26.
The RDE is left unblocked, which against this offense should be a pretty obvious tipoff that Beck will be bootlegging to your side. It is, and the Back never even has a chance to turn his shoulders upfield.
3-13-CAR 37 (1:53) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass short middle to T.Austin to CAR 31 for 6 yards (C.Munnerlyn). Timeout #2 by WAS at 01:06.
4-7-CAR 31 (1:06) G.Gano 49 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-N.Sundberg, Holder-S.Rocca. WAS
6 CAR 6, 10 plays, 49 yards, 2 penalties, 4:00 drive, 13:58 elapsed
G.Gano kicks 65 yards from WAS 35 to end zone, Touchback.
Carolina Panthers at 1:02
1-10-CAR 20 (1:02) (Shotgun) C.Newton sacked at CAR 17 for -3 yards (D.Hall).
Carriker gets around the outside but loses contain, so despite starting at a disadvantageous position Cofield does a great job of pursuit to chase Cam to the sideline, where he eventually steps out of bounds.
2-13-CAR 17 (:55) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass incomplete short middle to G.Olsen (L.Fletcher).
I think I’m done for the night.
3-13-CAR 17 (:49) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass incomplete short right to G.Olsen (D.Hall).
4-13-CAR 17 (:46) J.Baker punts 48 yards to WAS 35, Center-J.Jansen. B.Banks to WAS 31 for -4 yards (C.Munnerlyn).
Washington Redskins at 0:36
1-10-WAS 31 (:36) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass incomplete deep left to J.Gaffney (D.Butler).
2-10-WAS 31 (:30) (Shotgun) J.Beck pass short left to J.Gaffney to WAS 35 for 4 yards (C.Munnerlyn). FUMBLES (C.Munnerlyn), RECOVERED by CAR-J.Anderson at WAS 34. J.Anderson to WAS 34 for no gain (E.Cook).
Carolina Panthers at 0:21
1-10-WAS 34 (:21) C.Newton pass short left to G.Olsen to WAS 30 for 4 yards (R.McIntosh).
2-6-WAS 30 (:17) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass incomplete deep left to S.Smith.
3-6-WAS 30 (:12) (Shotgun) C.Newton pass short left to S.Smith pushed ob at WAS 27 for 3 yards (B.Orakpo).
Timeout #3 by WAS at 00:07.
4-3-WAS 27 (:07) O.Mare 45 yard field goal is GOOD, Center-J.Jansen, Holder-J.Baker.Washington Redskins vs Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium
WAS 6 CAR 9, 4 plays, 7 yards, 0:19 drive, 14:58 elapsed
O.Mare kicks 35 yards from CAR 35 to WAS 30. L.Paulsen (didn't try to advance) to WAS 30 for no gain (G.Olsen).
