VIDEO: ‘Skins Expose Giants With Option

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 8, 2012 – 12:00 pm

Check out how the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” crew breaks down how the Redskins offense’s option attack was able to break down the New York Giants’ defense Monday night in the 17-16 Washington win.

The option has been just one wrinkle of the Redskins’ East Coast Offense, which has blossomed under head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Tight end Logan Paulsen this week also addressed how the read-option and the pistol formation make the Washington offense’s wheels turn — though it didn’t all happen overnight.

Pay extra careful attention to this tomorrow, when the Redskins play host to the Baltimore Ravens at FedExField.

The Ravens (9-3) currently rank an un-Ravens-like 23rd in the NFL against the run, allowing 125.8 rushing yards per game. The Redskins (6-6), meanwhile, have the league’s No. 1 rushing attack, and average 167.2 rushing yards per game — almost five whole yards ahead of the second-place San Francisco 49ers (162.1).
