Consistency Is More Than Just a Passing Fancy
From a sheer tactical standpoint, as Jim Zorn recalibrated the X's and O's in his mind after the game, the Detroit Lions had "won" the play. The Lions had unleashed a fire-zone blitz on first-and-10 from the 50 late in the third quarter, the Redskins' blocking scheme failed to account for the oncoming rusher, and it would take something extraordinary from a player to overcome the schematic mismatch.
