Zone blocking where you engage the interior DL (hampton) with one man and use another man to cut him down creating a huge whole for linemen to get to the second level . This works well when you have a great one-cut runner (ala Ray Rice) to stretch the play out until that lane is open. They did a great job of displaying that on the first play of the game. From there the DL CANT be aggresive for fear of a career ending knee injury (hense why this has since been made illegal in the nfl) and thats why you saw even Aaron Smith getting blown off of the ball and B-more run the ball so well.

    After that the play-action is WIDE OPEN, esp. when you ask Timmons/foote/farrior to cover Pita and Dickson who are WR's playing tightend! I dont however see alot of teams employing this tactic in the future. Brady is gonna lineup with 2 tight and take whatever you give him. The Steelers are going to have to play nickle, have woodley and harrison jam hard on te's at the line of scrimmage and have dbs on Gronkowski and Hernadez.
    I think it's a combination of the old Bronco's offense, and the current Patriots and Packers offense. The ability to gameplan and spread out a defense, the quick shot passes, and the one main back who's compact and quick that can elude your average front 7 defender all goes into the recipe that has had success against the Steelers.

    Everybody will be doing it now, it's proven successful and NFL defenses will have to find a way to counter it.

    The Pats kick our butts every time we play. If other teams don't start doing the same thing, they they are pretty stupid.

They ran the ball great and when Flacco had to throw he delivered whilst Steelers brought no passrush whatsoever.
    Is that your saving grace, that Ben had more passing yards then Flacco? Ben had more yards passing because he had to pass more after being down big early. geez.
