William Jackson Film: Part 2
3rd & 8 – Jackson perfectly times his break on the curl route and gets the pass deflection.
Jackson is a subpar tackler. He can launch with his shoulder and land big hits but he doesn’t wrap-up very well. The result is more missed tackles than you would like to see.
Textbook technique to shoot his arm through the WR’s hands to force the incompletion.
Jackson gets beat here, and this would have been a TD if not for the dropped pass.
Jackson is in off-coverage on this play, so don’t fault him for the quick underneath completion. Jackson strips the ball after the catch, and Houston recovers.
