We have said it all offseason, QB Tyrod Taylor is most effective when play action is utilized. In the game versus the Denver Broncos, Taylor ran play action 35.3% of his passes and was 7/8 for 93 yards and 1 TD. His completion percentage was +15.3% when a play action fake was executed.
Play action is especially effective when offensive coordinator Rick Dennison puts Taylor under center because it brings the second level defenders downhill when Taylor fakes it to Lesean Mccoy, making it easier for Taylor to hit receivers in the intermediate area. An area where Taylor has been average. Take a look at how this play design helped Taylor hit WR Kaelin Clay.
