Ronnie lines up behind Manning on what looks like should be a favorable matchup for the OLine and for a running play.
It's a running play and Hillman gets the handoff. This is what he sees when he gets the ball. As you can see the line is pretty scrambled.
The line doesn't give up much and this is Hillman approaching the LOS. There is an unblocked DB coming in and Ronnie decides to cut back in.
Ronnie Hillman cuts in.
Hillman is able to find a small crease inside the DB and use his momentum to get a 1 yard run. He is tackled by the DB.
Again, there wasn't much here on the play. You can say he could have tried to juke the DB and bounce out but that probably wouldn't be successful as the DB was running in with good technique. The play was obviously designed to go inside as most our running plays are.
