Why zone read has been so effective for Seahawks
We noted Monday how the Seahawks have scored 25 offensive touchdowns since Week 8, up from 10 during their first seven games. It's probably not a complete coincidence that their improvement began right around the time they began incorporating zone-read plays into their offense.
Sidney Rice's game-winning touchdown against Chicago and two of Russell Wilson's three rushing scores against Buffalo are some of the more notable examples of how the Seahawks have effectively used the zone read.
In the video below, Mike Salk discusses the impact the zone read has had on Seattle's offense and why it's been so successful.
