Simple UFR: 2011 Week 01 at Jaguars-Offense

Along the lines of the data dumps I've done recently, here's a simplified version of the Upon Further Review I used to do. Note this is only the offense.

One thing I've modified from the original UFR as I did it is personnel and formation. That's listed under "PERSONNEL". The first item is the formation, but I've changed and simplified nomenclature. I-formation is obvious, and I've used 2x1, 2x2, or 1x3, etc. to show how many receivers are to one side. This includes, for the most part, everybody not an in-line tight end or back. Left side of the formation is listed first, so 1x2 means one receiver to the left side and two to the right side. Then come personnel, first RBs/backfield people, then TEs, then WRs. WR are generally listed from left to right. For instance, "3x1, CJ, Cook, Williams/Washington/Britt" would indicate CJ is the lone setback, Williams was the wide receiver to the left side, Washington in the slot to the left, and Britt the right-most receiver. Cook's location isn't specified, but he lined up largely in the slot. One thing I plan to do for next time is include Cook or anybody else with the WRs whenever he's listed in the formation (3x1).

The only separator for drives is what's listed in the Gamebook, the team name and time. I've bolded those, and added two-spaces. I also didn't do drive recaps like I used to, but will probably include those if I have time to do this going forward.

As per normal practice, full details go after the jump.


Tennessee Titans at 15:00
1-10-TEN 20 (15:00) M.Hasselbeck sacked at TEN 14 for -6 yards (M.Roth).
PERSONNEL: Ace, CJ, Stevens/Cook, Washington/Britt
The season begins quite sharply, with the Jaguars enjoying a clear rock-paper-scissors edge. Hasselbeck tries to boot right only to run directly into Matt Roth, who completely ignored the playfake and went straight for Matt at the spot.

2-16-TEN 14 (14:28) C.Johnson left end to TEN 14 for no gain (P.Posluszny; D.Cox).
PERSONNEL: Offset I, CJ/QJ, Stevens, Washington/Britt
Run to the offset left side. Jaguars RDE Mincey gets leverage on Roos and pushes him a couple yards into the backfield. CJ has to run parallel more than I’m sure the play was designed for. Demerit on this play also to Harris, who couldn’t get to the second level fast enough to prevent Posluszny from filling the hole CJ eventually found.

3-16-TEN 14 (13:44) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short middle to N.Washington to TEN 21 for 7 yards (D.Coleman).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Washington/Britt/DWill
Jaguars run a stunt, and while the OL gives ground the 5 protect against the 4 so CJ slips out in the flat. Washington and Britt are aligned to the left, Washington in the slot. Britt runs a deeper route designed to pull the defenders away, but it doesn’t really work and Washington is tackled after making the catch.


Tennessee Titans at 6:49
1-10-TEN 20 (6:49) C.Johnson left end to TEN 20 for no gain (D.Smith).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Washington/Britt/DWill
Cook motions from in-line right to slot left before the snap. Run left to CJ, and it’s Amano’s job to slant left, then slide to the second level to pick up linebacker Smith. He doesn’t, which forces CJ to hesitate, and the rest of the defense arrives.

2-10-TEN 20 (6:09) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short right to C.Stevens (T.Alualu).
PERSONNEL: Offset I, CJ/QJ, Stevens slot R, Britt/Mariani
Playfake to CJ and a deep drop from Hasselbeck. The Jaguars bring 4, the Titans protect with 5. I question Stevens running a deep out from the slot, but he’s open. Unfortunately, LDT Alualu has pushed Jake Scott back almost into Hasselbeck and he can’t step into the throw. The throw sails and falls incomplete.

3-10-TEN 20 (6:02) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to D.Williams to TEN 25 for 5 yards (P.Posluszny; D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: Trips right, CJ, Cook, Hass/Washington/DWill
Titans come out with the trips, with Cook running a drag, Williams an in, and Washington a deeper route. Cook’s drag is designed to pull zone defender Coleman away, but he plays disciplined defense and doesn’t bite. That allows him to react quickly and disrupt Williams, preventing him from the YAC necessary for the conversion.


Tennessee Titans at 2:10
1-10-TEN 20 (2:10) C.Johnson up the middle to TEN 20 for no gain (P.Posluszny).
PERSONNEL: 1x2, CJ, Cook/Stevens, Washington/Britt
The draw starts off relatively promisingly, there are two holes, should be two blockers, and three defenders. The result of that should be an open lane for CJ. Unfortunately, Amano is preoccupied with helping Scott against LDT Knighton and can't make the block I'm assuming should be his. Posluszny fills the hole, and CJ is sunk.

2-10-TEN 20 (1:34) C.Johnson up the middle to TEN 23 for 3 yards (A.Lane).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Cook, Britt/DWill/Washington
Williams in the slot moves left, hoping to draw the attention of slot defender Coleman, but he doesn't bite and CJ can't take the play there. CJ looks for the cutback, but Cook hasn't sealed LDE Lane so he has no choice but to dive forward for a couple.

3-7-TEN 23 (:58) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short middle to J.Harper to TEN 44 for 21 yards (J.Chick). P1
PERSONNEL: 2x2, Harper, Cook, Britt/DWill/Washington
Jaguars line up in a pressure look, and bring 5. Titans protect with 5. It looks like a designed screen, but because of the pressure the lead blockers can't get there. No matter, as the receivers running downfield routes have pulled the shallow coverage away. Harper makes one defender miss around the first down line, and gets an extra 15 yards. Great playcall.

1-10-TEN 44 (:13) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete deep left to K.Britt.
PERSONNEL: Empty, 2x2, Stevens, Harper, Britt/Washington/?
Jaguars don't blitz against the empty set but instead rush 4 and play coverage. Hasselbeck throws the deep corner route for Britt. He's open, but the Jaguars have pushed the OL back (Alualu v Harris the key but not the only one) and Hasselbeck throws off his back foot inaccurately again.

2-10-TEN 44 (:06) J.Harper up the middle to 50 for 6 yards (D.Landry; C.Session).
PERSONNEL: Offset I, Harper/QJ, Stevens, Hawk/DWill
Oops. The Jaguars bring a blitz to the left side while the Titans run Power to the right. Harris pulls and gets the seal on LDE Lane, allowing QJ to slide off him and pick up LB Smith. Harper follows his blocks (good patience) and cuts it back for a couple extra yards. Really nice to see a good run after the earlier nonsense.


3-4-50 (15:00) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to K.Britt to JAX 39 for 11 yards (C.Greene)
PERSONNEL: Trips left, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/DWill
Trips in close to the left, but it's instead a quick slant to Britt against Mathis. Britt wins to the inside, breaks a couple tackles at the marker and gets a good gain. Two good plays in a row!

1-10-JAX 39 (14:27) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck sacked at JAX 48 for -9 yards (D.Coleman). FUMBLES (D.Coleman), recovered by TEN-J.Scott at JAX 47. J.Scott to JAX 47 for no gain (D.Coleman).
PERSONNEL: 3WR left, CJ, Britt/DWill?/Washington
Jaguars bring the blindside blitz with 6. Titans have 5 to protect. Roos properly takes inside rusher Poz, but that leaves slot defender Coleman untouched. Hass is looking right to Cook and CJ and never sees Coleman. Titans are fortunate enough to get the ball back.

2-18-JAX 47 (13:38) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short middle to J.Cook to JAX 40 for 7 yards (D.Smith).
PERSONNEL: Trips left, CJ, Cook, Washington/DWill/Britt
After last play's sack, the Titans aren't going to let that happen again. Hasselbeck fakes the quick pass to Britt, who's taken an outside release this time, and hits Cook on a stick route over the middle. No real hope of converting here, but setting up third and more reasonable is a laudable goal.

3-11-JAX 40 (12:59) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete deep left to K.Britt.
PERSONNEL: 1x3, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/?
Jaguars rush 4, Titans protect with 5 as CJ slips out. Hasselbeck seems to be looking left at Britt the whole way, waiting for him to come open, but Cox and a safety over the top have good coverage. Hasselbeck eventually launches an overthrown ball off his back foot too far for Britt, but it looks like a throw away, not an attempt to complete a pass. The better decision probably would've been to check the ball down to CJ-with 5 more yards, the Titans are in field goal range.


Tennessee Titans at 5:55
1-10-TEN 20 (5:55) M.Hasselbeck pass deep middle to N.Washington to 50 for 30 yards (D.Landry)
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Stevens, Britt/Washington/DWill?
Rush 4, protect 6 as Stevens stays in. Washington lines up in the slot left and runs a simple seam route upfield. Protection is good enough-Hasselbeck doesn't step into the throw, but still puts a nicely placed one for Washington over Coleman and in front of safeties. If Coleman looks back, he has a chance to break the pass up, but he doesn't.

1-10-50 (5:16) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short right to J.Cook.
PERSONNEL: 2TE Left, CJ, Cook/Stevens, Washington/Britt?
Another bootleg, this with a fake pitch, and again LDE Roth stays home. Hasselbeck has Cook running behind the OL and gets the ball to him, but Coleman does a good idea of taking Cook's legs out from under him and forcing an drop. I wrote in the preseason about how the Titans would need counters for the bootleg action, and Roth hasn't been fooled either time.

2-10-50 (5:13) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to C.Stevens to JAX 48 for 2 yards (C.Greene).
PERSONNEL: Ace, CJ, Cook/Stevens, Britt?/Washington
A shallow out to Craig Stevens. Yes, it picked up 2 yards. Why did you think it would pick up anything else?

3-8-JAX 48 (4:30) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to C.Johnson to JAX 43 for 5 yards (D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: 1x3, CJ, Cook, Britt/Hawkins/Williams?
Titans come out in a formation designed to overweight the defense to the offensive right, then throw the swing to CJ. Unfortunately the Jaguars don't react the way the Titans expect them to, as S Landry (lined up in an LB-like position) follows CJ and makes the tackle. Britt doesn't get a good block, but he was kind of stuck with both CB Cox and Landry. The man advantage was on the other side, as Hawk appeared to be open.


Tennessee Titans at 2:23
1-10-JAX 44 (2:23) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short right to D.Williams.
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Williams
Hasselbeck takes the quick drop and fires the quick slant left for Williams. The pass is high but catchable, and Williams can't hang on.

2-10-JAX 44 (2:22) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to J.Cook to JAX 35 for 9 yards (C.Greene).
PENALTY on TEN-L.Harris, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at JAX 44 - No Play.
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Williams?
Roll right and pass to Cook on the drag route. Greene has good coverage and makes a good tackle, but still a nice pickup. Unfortunately, the Jaguars blitzed and ran a stunt. Hasselbeck wasn't in danger, but Harris wasn't ready to deal with the stunt and grabbed RDE Mincey.

2-20-TEN 46 (2:03) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to C.Johnson to TEN 40 for -6 yards (D.Cox).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Washington/Williams/Britt
It's a screen, which LB Smith does an excellent job of reading. He has CJ stopped for a 2 yard loss, but CJ spins out of the tackle and loses 4 more yards. This stuff writes itself some times.

Two-Minute Warning
3-26-TEN 40 (1:53) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete deep left to K.Britt (D.Cox).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ?, Cook, Britt/Williams?/Washington
You don't expect to convert 3&26, and the Titans don't. The pass is a jump ball for Britt, but Cox is in good position and S Greene is available for help over the top. The OL doesn't do a good job again, as Hasselbeck is crushed by DE Chick on a stunt right after letting the ball go. Amano is the most guilty culprit for that in my eyes.


Tennessee Titans at 0:14
1-10-TEN 39 (:14) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to C.Johnson ran ob at TEN 46 for 7 yards (R.Mathis).
PERSONNEL: Split backs, 2x1, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Williams
Designed dumpoff to CJ in the right flat, get your most explosive athlete in space and let him run as the wideouts run clearing routes downfield. Some yardage, and CJ smartly steps out of bounds.

2-3-TEN 46 (:09) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to C.Johnson pushed ob at JAX 49 for 5 yards (R.Mathis).
PERSONNEL: Split backs, 2x1, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Williams
See above. Same thing.


Tennessee Titans at 10:45
1-10-TEN 44 (10:45) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short middle to M.Mariani (D.Smith).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Williams?/Mariani/Britt?
Shallow crosser for Mariani. The throw is slightly late-Mariani doesn't have to break stride exactly so much as he slows down slightly and Smith is better able to break and prevent the catch. A slightly faster decision from Hasselbeck is the cure here.

2-10-TEN 44 (10:41) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short right to C.Stevens.
PERSONNEL: 1x2, CJ, Stevens/Cook, Britt?/Washington
Interesting formation here, as CJ is offset in a wing formation a couple yards behind Roos, while Stevens is flexed right a little off the OL and Cook in the slot right. Jaguars bring the slot blitz from the right, and Hasselbeck's pass is behind Stevens on the shallow out. Hasselbeck gestures at Stevens after the play, so I'm guessing his read was Stevens should've just stopped and set up instead of running the out.

3-10-TEN 44 (10:38) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete deep left to N.Washington.
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Britt?/Washington/Williams?
Jaguars rush 4 again (see, the Titans aren't the only team that rarely blitzes), and protection is fine. Washington and the other left side receiver run a combo at the snap and after Washington's defender slips, he's wide open. Unfortunately, Hasselbeck's pass has too much air on it. The Titans would've been in field goal range with an accurate pass, so this one hurts.


Tennessee Titans at 2:33, (1st play from scrimmage 2:32)
1-10-TEN 20 (2:32) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short middle to K.Britt for 80 yards, TOUCHDOWN [L.Douzable].
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Williams/Washington/Britt
Jaguars bring 5 on a zone blitz. CJ does a terrible job in pass protection and Hasselbeck is forced to scramble. Forutnately while he's doing so, Britt on his drag route loses Mathis going over the middle. He adjusts his route, Hasselbeck's awkward flip makes it to him, two Jaguars defenders whiff, and it's off to the races for a score.


Tennessee Titans at 12:22
1-10-TEN 20 (12:22) C.Johnson up the middle to TEN 29 for 9 yards (T.Alualu).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Cook, Williams/Britt/Washington
Something like good blocking! Okay, not quite-Cook gets pushed four yards into the backfield by LDE Roth, almost killing the play before it starts, but Stewart and Amano pick the linebackers. If Cook has a better block on Roth, who did get a hand on CJ and slowed him down, this is a play that might've gone for big yardage.

2-1-TEN 29 (11:54) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short middle to C.Johnson (P.Posluszny).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Britt/Williams/Washington
Hasselbeck doesn't like what he sees, so he tries the simple dumpoff to CJ for the first down. Unfortunately, Posluszny is right there and knocks the ball out to set up 3&1. Williams on the out to the left side was another not-great option.

3-1-TEN 29 (11:49) C.Johnson left end to TEN 29 for no gain (C.Session).
PERSONNEL: I-Formation 2-TE, CJ/QJ, Stevens/Graham, Mariani
I mentioned this play in my quick recap, but RDE Mincey does a good job of tying up playside blockers Roos and Stevens. If Roos gets Mincey, Stevens should be able to peel to get LB Smith, who's instead able to fill the hole and force CJ to make something out of nothing. He couldn't.


Tennessee Titans at 9:16
1-10-TEN 20 (9:16) C.Johnson right end to TEN 22 for 2 yards (W.Middleton).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Stevens, Williams/Britt/Washington
If the back doesn't take it, is there still an alley here? Scott gets blown into the backfield by Alualu, but if CJ runs forward, there's a lane for him to go upfield as all Jacksonville defenders have a blocker between him and the running lane. Unfortunately, CJ doesn't see it or can't get it and instead bounces it outside.

2-8-TEN 22 (8:49) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to C.Johnson to TEN 25 for 3 yards (R.Mathis) [J.Mincey].
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Stevens, Britt?/Washington/Williams?
Hasselbeck doesn't like what he sees and dumps it off to CJ for a short gain. Protection was fair, not great, and the Titans showed again a vulnerability to looping. CJ can't make anything happen against the zone.

3-5-TEN 25 (8:05) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to N.Washington to TEN 32 for 7 yards (D.Coleman).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Cook, Williams/Washington/Britt
Jaguars show a little bit of blitz look, but only rush 4. Hasselbeck finds Washington just past the marker on a little stick route for a first down. Nothing fancy, but keeps the drive alive.

1-10-TEN 32 (7:25) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass deep left to K.Britt to JAX 43 for 25 yards (C.Greene) [J.Mincey].
PERSONNEL: 1x3, CJ, Cook, Britt/Williams?/Washington?
Complete to Britt on the big gain on a bow out in what looks like the deep outside void against cover-2. Hasselbeck took a hit on the play, listed as from Mincey, but the key again was the stunt and the RDT looping. The OL couldn't adjust, and Roos was stuck blowing two players.

1-10-JAX 43 (6:39) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to C.Johnson to JAX 32 for 11 yards (D.Smith) [J.Mincey].
PERSONNEL: 1x3, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Williams?
Mincey beats Roos to the outside, forcing the dumpoff to CJ in the left flat. Being CJ, he makes Mathis miss and Smith has to force him out of bounds once he's past the first down marker. I'll leave exactly what Roos did wrong on the play to someone better able to diagnose OL play.

1-10-JAX 32 (6:21) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete deep right to J.Cook [J.Mincey].
PENALTY on TEN-D.Stewart, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at JAX 32 - No Play.
PERSONNEL: 1x3, Harper (offset), Cook, Mariani/Washington?/Williams?
Hasselbeck throws for Cook on the deep out. Cook's ahead of Landry in man coverage, but the throw's a little too far. Neither OT fared well on the play-Stewart gets flagged for a hold on Roth, a necessary hold after getting beat, and Roos doesn't let Mincey get outside of him but gets beat all the same.

1-20-JAX 42 (6:13) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to N.Washington to JAX 35 for 7 yards (C.Greene; L.Douzable).
PERSONNEL: 1x2, Graham?, Stevens, Williams?/Washington/Britt
I believe that's Graham in the backfield, yes. The pass is a quick one to Washington in the slot with Britt blocking for him. Washington jukes his cover guy, Coleman, but is quickly brought down by the rest of the Jaguars defense. Still, it gets the Titans into a much more reasonable second down situation.

2-13-JAX 35 (5:42) PENALTY on JAX-R.Mathis, Encroachment, 5 yards, enforced at JAX 35 - No Play.
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Hawkins

2-8-JAX 30 (5:42) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short left to K.Britt (L.Douzable).
PERSONNEL: 2x2, CJ, Britt/Washington/Hawkins?
Hasselbeck appears to be throwing for Britt on a deep dig, but Scott can't prevent Douzable from getting his arm up and the pass is harmlessly batted down.

3-8-JAX 30 (5:37) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass incomplete short right to M.Mariani.
Penalty on JAX-J.Mincey, Defensive Offside, declined.
PENALTY on JAX-R.Mathis, Defensive Pass Interference, 14 yards, enforced at JAX 30 - No Play.
PERSONNEL: 3x1, CJ, Hawkins?/Washington/Cook/Mariani
Jaguars show blitz, and bring 6. The stunt works, as Roth (I believe) comes free and CJ doesn't pick up Lowery off the edge either. Hasselbeck is forced to throw up a desperation pass for Mariani in single coverage against Mathis. Fortunately Mathis doesn't get his head around and runs into Mariani for pass interference.

1-10-JAX 16 (5:30) C.Johnson right end to JAX 9 for 7 yards (D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Britt?/Washington?/Hawkins?
Power works again, as Harris pulls and Cook doesn't get blown up by the DE. CJ seems to flatten the run out, which draws S Greene to the outside, only to cut it up for a good gain before Landry comes up from his deep safety position to make the tackle.

2-3-JAX 9 (5:08) C.Johnson up the middle to JAX 6 for 3 yards (D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, CJ, Cook, Britt?/Hawkins/Washington
Not much room here, as the deep safeties aren't that deep and are able to come up and fill the hole after only a short gain. Still some good blocking by the OL and a first down.

1-6-JAX 6 (4:35) J.Harper right tackle to JAX 6 for no gain (P.Posluszny; D.Smith).
PERSONNEL: Offset I, Harper/QJ, Stevens, Britt/Washington
The Jaguars have 9 defenders in the box. Both wideouts have single coverage. Obviously you should run the ball. Scott gets out to pick Session, but Poz shoots the gap and a pulling Harris can't get a productive block on anybody. Next time, please check to a pass Mr. Veteran Quarterback.

2-6-JAX 6 (4:04) J.Harper up the middle to JAX 2 for 4 yards (T.Alualu; T.Knighton).
PERSONNEL: 2x1, Harper, Cook, Britt?/Hawkins?/Washington
The Titans double both defensive tackles, and they still get credit for making the play. Ok, Harris splits off from Knighton to pick up a linebacker, and Scott does leave Alualu to get a linebacker of his own, but Alualu has inside position on Stewart, Knighton is bigger and stronger than Amano, and a DB (Landry, I think) filled the hole. A productive gain despite all that.

3-2-JAX 2 (3:40) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to K.Britt for 2 yards, TOUCHDOWN. P11
PERSONNEL: 2x2, Harper, Cook, Britt/Hawkins/Washington
Throw it up for Kenny Britt and let him make a play. Fortunately, he's Kenny Britt and makes a great grab over Mathis with a better toe-tap for the score.


Tennessee Titans at 1:45
1-10-TEN 3 (1:45) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck scrambles up the middle to TEN 12 for 9 yards (D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: 3x1, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Hawkins
Not sure what Hasselbeck sees downfield. I do know, however, that I don't like Hasselbeck's decision to keep the ball himself and run up the middle of the field instead of dumping it off to CJ. I recognize he wanted to not have to drop back into the end zone, but it'd be :21 before the Titans ran their next play.

2-1-TEN 12 (1:24) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to N.Washington to TEN 22 for 10 yards (D.Landry).
PERSONNEL: 3x1, CJ, Cook, Hawkins/Washington/Britt?
Complete the in against soft coverage for a first down and let Washington dive forward for a few yards. Needed yards, but the time/distance tradeoff is not a great one.

1-10-TEN 22 (1:03) (No Huddle, Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short left to N.Washington to TEN 28 for 6 yards (D.Coleman).
PERSONNEL: 3x1, CJ, Cook, Hawkins/Washington/Britt
The same sort of 6-yard in, and Coleman comes up and makes a good tackle in coverage. Why throw this pass, given the game situation? Why? Why? Why?

2-4-TEN 28 (:39) (No Huddle, Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass short right to K.Britt to TEN 46 for 18 yards (D.Lowery).
PERSONNEL: 3x1, CJ, Cook, Hawkins/Washington/Britt
Quick slant to Britt. An easy pitch and catch against single coverage, Britt juggles the ball but still hangs on and gets some territory after the catch.

1-10-TEN 46 (:23) (No Huddle) M.Hasselbeck spiked the ball to stop the clock.

2-10-TEN 46 (:22) (Shotgun) M.Hasselbeck pass deep left intended for K.Britt INTERCEPTED by D.Lowery at JAX 20. D.Lowery to JAX 16 for -4 yards (K.Britt).
PERSONNEL: 1x3, CJ, Cook, Britt/Washington/Hawkins
Jags rush 5 for the first time in the drive, but CJ stays in and the blitz is picked up. Hasselbeck forces it for Britt, but it's off the mark and Lowery has an easy interception. Hasselbeck said he should've checked it down to Britt, but that's nonsense as CJ was blocking and nowhere near open.
