One more Patriots route to look at vs. the Jags Cover 3 defense (see example below). Here, New England can run the post-wheel concept to clear some space for the underneath out route. With Chris Hogan (Z) running the post (pushing the CB down the field) and Brandin Cooks (W) releasing on the wheel (removing the curl defender), Danny Amendola (X) now has room to break on the out route. Work to the vacated zone on a high-percentage throw for QB Tom Brady. Good call on third down to move the sticks.

Would expect the Patriots to run a bunch of Cover 3 beaters (three-deep, four-under zone) versus the Jags in the AFC Championship. This example (see below) allows QB Tom Brady to work the inside seams (Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan) with the shallow cross underneath (Brandin Cooks). The outside receivers? Basically decoys to hold the CBs (open up the windows to target the seam routes).
