Broncos 4th Down Gutsy NFL Call
By FirstDown PlayBook on Dec 18, 2019

There’s a funny thing that happens in the NFL every year about this time. It gets cold. It gets very cold. It snows. It sleets and the wind blows. Any NFL coordinator who goes into an NFL football game without looking at the weather forecast on the Monday before does so at his own peril.

A good coordinator will understand that there may be quarters of a December NFL football game when certain calls on the game plan are off the table. He may only have those calls the two quarters when he has the wind at his back.

Personnel? Yep, that is affected too. Those big bodied tight ends and fullbacks that seemed so slow in September now seem okay on the torn up, snowy fields of December.

FirstDown PlayBook got thinking about this as we joined USA FootBall’s Keith Grabowski yesterday for All 22 Tuesday. The Denver Broncos did did not have enough in their arsenal to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs but they did have a great gutsy fourth down call in the snow when they needed it. Take a look at it right here.
