Default Film Session: Broncos Levels Concept

After watching the Steelers-Broncos matchup on the “All-22” film, there are two route concepts that stand out in the Denver playbook: “Levels” and the “Semi Series” (Seam-Curl, Seam-Out, Seam-Comeback, Seam-Hitch). Today, let’s take a look at the “Levels” concept Peyton Manning and the Broncos ran on Sunday night—because it is the exact same scheme the QB produced with during his time in Indianapolis.

Scheme: Levels vs. Cover 3
Personnel: Posse (3WR-1TE-1RB)
Alignment: Doubles (2x2)

2x2 alignment with the Steelers playing Cover 3 (3-deep, 4-under). The Broncos will run No.1 and No.2 vertical to the open (weak) side of the formation with the and target the “Levels” (Smash-Dig) to the closed (strong) side of the formation. With two “middle hook” defenders in Cover 3 (two Inside backers underneath the dig), Manning will target WR Demaryius Thomas (Z) on the underneath Smash. 3rd and 1 situation vs. a CB playing from an off-position. Get the ball to Thomas and move the sticks.

Talk about soft coverage in a 3rd and 1 situation.
