FIRST SACK: 1st Quarter / 0:47 / 3rd and 10.
ABOVE: Mario Williams is lined up to the left on your screen. He's in a 9-technique, lined up outside the TE. The DT to his right is in a 2i, shaded to the right of the RG. The other DT is in a 3-technique, and the right DE is in a 9-technique. Situationally, it's 3rd and 10, pass pass pass all day. The 9-technique gets these quick edge rushers on an island with the Tackles.
ABOVE: The TE releases for a route and Mario heads upfield. The RT, Winston Justice, vertical sets at a 45 degree angle, kick slides. The RG and Center are focused on the 2i DT.
ABOVE: So far, the RT Winston Justice is in a good position, squared up, between Mario and the QB. This is where Mario takes over. Mario puts all his weight on his right foot, making an outside move, still about 2 yards away. (Notice how much of an island Mario is on with the RT)
ABOVE: Winston bites. Winston turns his shoulders to the outside and Mario, 1 yard away now, plants hard with his left foot and attacks the inside of Justice. That RG needs a miracle to get to the gap now.
ABOVE: Mario uses the swim move to finish the assault on Winston Justice. It's all in Luck's hands now. He's gotta make throw.
ABOVE: Luck steps up in the pocket, cocks his arm, but has no one up or doesn't feel confident enough to step into a throw.
ABOVE: Anddddd Boom goes the dynamite. Luck tried to use his legs to scramble but Mario was just too much.
SECOND SACK: 3rd Quarter / 1:57 / 3rd and 5.
ABOVE: Mario in the 9 technique again, outside the TE. Empty Backfield for the Colts. 3rd and 5, no RB, pass pass pass.
ABOVE: Mario takes a hard angle towards the QB, Winston Justice is still protecting the inside even though it looks like Mario has a pretty easy path outside. This is the adjustment made by Justice, which is solid so far. NOTE: Luck has such a clean pocket now, he has to get rid of the ball.
ABOVE: Luck, relying on his legs like a young QB will do, tries to take off. Mario plants his left foot, bull rushes the RT Winston, and closes the gap.
ABOVE: Luck isn't use to Mario's speed. Down goes Andrew.
THIRD SACK: 4th Quarter / 10:04 / 3rd and 2.
ABOVE: Mario is on your right side now. Still in a 9 technique, it's 3rd and 2 now though, not quite 100% pass situation. You can't see but Luck is calling a WR in motion.
ABOVE: WR in motion gets to the RT, ball is snapped, OL slides left like the play will be a jet sweep. The TE stays still, doesn't block anyone, doesn't fire out.
ABOVE: Play action! The RB comes across and will run to the flats, the TE is running just a hitch. Mario's eyes are huge. He's unblocked coming full speed at Luck.
ABOVE: Mario breaks a fundamental rule right here by leaving his feet, but he successfully blocks any attempt for Luck to throw the ball to the RB for a first down. Luck's only option now is to run for the first down, which it looks like he'll be able to do.
ABOVE: Wrong, Mario is a freak athlete and chases down a decent scrambler in Luck. That's his 3rd sack, all on 3rd downs. Those are big plays in football games, getting the defense off the field and ending drives.
