Thought this was pretty interesting.
It’s worth 1:25 of your time:
Never take plays off.
👀 Incredible video:
On one of the biggest plays of the game, the Saints WANTED to run a fake punt into the Eagles *regular defense* because they knew Fletcher Cox was going to play passively from film study. They ran right at him & converted the 1st down. pic.twitter.com/DhlWD8Yt9Q

Probably also worth pointing out that Cox was triple-teamed on the play. And there’s a high probability of pushing for a yard there whether you go traditional QB sneak or direct snap from a non-punt formation.
Still, these are good videos. I could watch stuff like this all day.
