Buffalo had a 4th and short that was interesting from a playcall standpoint.
They called a power rush, where the 2 of the offensive linemen, and the tight end simply blocked the guy in the front of them. But, the center and left guard went very low on their respective men to create a means for the running back to get through.
Then, they had the right guard come into the spot, followed by the fullback. That cleared out anyone else in the way.
Finally, the tailback got the ball and was able to dive into the opening for an easy first down.
It was well executed, and demonstrated what power rushing is really all about.
