What You Might’ve Missed: Closing the door

Gary follows up his good pressure from Play No. 2 above with a sack this time, once again beating Taylor around the edge. But it’s fun to watch this sack from behind the QB to see what actually happened. As Gary is getting Taylor to retreat deep into the pocket on one side, LB Za’Darius Smith (55) is doing the same with LT Cam Robinson (74) on the other side. The result – watch closely – is the left foot of each offensive tackle steps on one of Luton’s feet, and the brief moment Luton maybe has a chance to escape the pocket, he can’t move and Gary buries him. He probably wouldn’t have gotten away from Gary anyway, but with both feet tripped by his own guys, he was trapped.

Play No. 5: Third-and-16 from the Green Bay 42, fourth quarter, 1:24 left
