Ravens corner explains how Welker got open for his second Week 1 TD

Tale of the Tape: Breaking down Wes Welker's second TD

Each player was responsible for manning up whoever ran through their zone. There was no confusion for Smith, who was all alone with Decker, but Graham and Webb got mixed up when Thomas and Welker crisscrossed.

Graham stuck to Thomas, who ran a slant toward the middle of the field. Webb stayed in his zone and broke towards Thomas, who became his man. Welker was left open in the flat.

Excellent insight from Corey Graham regarding communication among defensive teammates. (via FO)
