Denver Broncos vs Jets: Breaking Down The O-Line Film

Bewsafolinespotlightkc1_mediumWeek #11

The Denver Broncos get a big win over the the Jets on Thursday night football, 17-13.  The Broncos improve to 5-5 on the season, while the Jets drop to 5-5.

The Jets came ready to battle the Broncos in the trenches.  They knew the Broncos were going to run the ball...and the Broncos didn't care.

Taking into consideration that defenders are harder to block when they know what is coming...the offensive line did a decent job.  Yes, the Jets are a hand full...and some lineman had a hard time holding back the defenders (Ryan Clady).  But in the end, the Broncos did what they wanted to do.

This week, Zone Beadles ends the day with the highest run blocking assignment grade with a 81%.  He also had a -1 dominance score and a +12 second level score.  That 2nd level score is really good.  And when offensive lineman get good 2nd level scores...you can expect bigger chunks of yardage in the run game.

If you are interested in knowing which AFC West offensive lineman PFS thinks deserve to be chosen to the Pro Bowl this year, then check out this article...Voting For The Pro Bowl.

 

Let's take a look at the rest of those grades...

Team Run Blocking
Power Blocking
Power Blocking Score
2nd Level Blocks
Did the lineman get the job done or not?  These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams.  A game in the mid 80s to 90% is a decent score.
How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated?  These scores are good for comparing across teams and finding  the most dominant lineman in the league.   
Anything over zero is a good score.  The more over zero the more the lineman dominated the defender.  Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the defender.
The number of successes over failures for the lineman when blocking linebackers and safeties on the second level.  The lineman must be athletic to accomplish a high second level score.

Run Blocking Notes:

  • Ryan Clady has a rough day holding back the Jets defensive ends.  He ends the day with a 69% assignment grade and a -3 power score in run blocking.  By far, his worst game run blocking.  Some examples:  10:52 in the 3rd, 4:13 in the 3rd, and 9:08  in the 4th.
  • At 5:55 in the 1st quarter, J.D. Walton gets a good scoop on a defender to his right and Kuper gets a good 2nd level block.
  • If you would like to see where the Broncos ran the ball and where they were getting their yards against the jets then go here, Broncos vs Jets Week #11:  Post Game Stats Analysis.
  • At 14:35 in the 1st quarter, Clady gets beat and his defender makes the tackle in the backfield.
  • At 13:12 in the 1st quarter, the Broncos have a 3rd and short.  Chris Kuper misses a block and the 2nd effort of Willis McGahee picks up the 1st down.
  • At 12:00 in the 1st, Zane Beadles gets knocked on his butt during a run play.
  • At 9:57 in the 1st, Chris Clark is about a second late coming off the ball on a 3rd and short play.  Have to know that snap count and fire off on those critical downs.
  • Chris Kuper and Orlando Franklin get a great combo run block on a defender and drive him at 8:39 in the 4th quarter.
  • At 6:47 in the 1st quarter, Orlando Franklin is put to the ground during a run play.  But he comes back at 7:58 in the 3rd quarter, and puts his defender to the ground in pass protection with a great punch.
  • At 11:12 in the 2nd quarter, J.D. Walton misses a block and the defender makes the tackle.
  • At 3:44 in the 4th quarter, Ryan Clady and Zane Beadles team up and drive their defender down inside to open a nice hole.
  • As always, the Tight Ends and Backs Grades are, here.

 

Team Pass Blocking
Passing Power Blocking
Pressures Combo Help
Did the lineman get the job done or not?  These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams.  A game in the 90% is a good score for pass blocking.
How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated?  Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the block. How often did the offensive lineman give up pressure on the quarterback?  Every once and a while a lineman can do his job but give up pressure on the QB.  This stat will help glean more info from the line grades.
How often did the offensive coordinator provide help for a tough defender or a struggling lineman.  Yea, two lineman ended up with the same grade...but how much help did either of them get?

Pass Blocking Notes:

 

  • Not many passing notes.  Franklin has a nice power punch at 7:58 in the 3rd and puts the defender on the ground.
  • At 3:30 in he 3rd quarter, Orlando Franklin's defender finally gives up a pressure...but he looks a little more comfortable in pass protection in his few snaps this week.
  • You can check out the line performance in past games, here.
