Play designs from the Saints, Broncos, and Dolphins reveal successful strategies and concepts for your passing game playbook.
With their arsenal of play makers on the offensive side of the ball, Drew Brees and the Saints crafted a play design where they overflow an entire side of the field with all five of their route running options.
