We are back again for Football Talk Friday #13! This week we are breaking down a long play call, Z Skip Dade Right Classy Shotgun Archie Right X Mag, whew that is a beast. In addition to breaking down the play we will also watch the 2018 New Orleans Saints run this against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in week 1.

Z Skip Dade Right Classy Shotgun Archie Right X Mag is one of the best red zone plays I have seen the Saints run this season. It is a pure progression play where the Quarterback starts by looking at the F on the pivot route, then working to the X on the mag route before getting to the running back on the check-down HOB.

The New Orleans Saints ran this concept on a key third down against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers deep in the red zone. You will see Tampa come out in an all linebacker blitz, cover 0 look. Drew Brees completed the Mag Route for a 5-yard touchdown.

Make sure to follow along in order to pick up all the details, and master this pro-style red zone concept.
