Cooley Film Breakdown: Packers Defensive Schemes

Posted Jan 9, 2016

Chris Cooley breaks down the various looks that the Washington Redskins' offense can expect to see Sunday against the Green Bay Packers' defense. Catch up with all of his analysis here.

Chris Cooley breaks down the various looks that the Washington Redskins' offense can expect to see Sunday against the Green Bay Packers' defense. Catch up with all of his analysis here.


As Cooley notes, third-down situations are going to be "critical" for the Redskins on Sunday in their Wild Card Round matchup against the Packers at FedExField. Green Bay brings with it a Top-10 third-down defense, and they've been successful by showing a variety of different coverages, as well as doing a good job disguising what they're going to do.


Cooley shows the possibilities that come about when you attack certain Green Bay zone defensive looks with effective play-action. Quarterback Kirk Cousins will have to make some quick decisions at the line on Sunday to possibly move out of a run play with a quick pass to the outside if he sees a certain look -- especially with the Packers' safeties crashing in.


Cooley gets back to looking at the Packers' versatility on third down, but knows that the Redskins' weapons could make the difference. Jordan Reed, DeSean Jackson, Chris Thompson, Jamison Crowder and others could force Green Bay's hand and get them into some zone converage looks in third-and-medium type plays.
