The Seattle Seahawks scored on a last minute touchdown throw by Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin to edge ahead of the Miami Dolphins late in the game. To secure the victory, the Seahawks call tackle-end stunts to attack Ryan Tannehill and stop him from putting together a game-winning drive after Steven Hauschka’s PAT was blocked after the touchdown was scored.

In this video breakdown, I explain how Cassius Marsh and Frank Clark use the tackle-end stunt to sack Ryan Tannehill and secure the victory for the Seattle Seahawks.

The tackle end stunt is one of the best pass rushing stunts due to the potential for interior penetration and that's exactly what happened here as Tannehill was flushed out of the pocket. While Cassius Marsh will get all the accolades, Frank Clark won the battle as the penetrator to create space for Marsh as the looping defensive end.
