on that play he gets engage with the guard and the LT pushed him from the side so I won't make a big fuss on that one but totally agree with the other two.
That's one of the adjustments that needed to be made. The LT was able to turn his attention back inside and help blast the DE off his feet because his outside shoulder was no longer threatened as soon as he seen Harris buzzing the flat.
Harris buzzing the flat is doing his job in this coverage, but there was no reason to. As soon he saw the back was offset to his side and went the other way to mesh with the QB - he should've converted his coverage responsibility into a pass rush. There was no reason to be out there covering grass at that point. That grass isn't going to score on you. Turn that 3 man rush into a 4 man rush.
Instead, the 3 man rush that should've been a 4 man rush got turned into a 2 man rush. Just no efficiency if you can't play fluid, smart defensive football.
