NFL Breakdowns is a website devoted to football fans that want to deepen their understanding of the game through film study. The world of football is very overwhelming. Commentators use complicated terms like Cover 2 and Pistol-formation on a routine-basis, but they don’t analyze the game much further than explaining a basic play concept. This is why NFL Breakdowns was created. We wanted to help bridge the gap between most people’s basic understanding of the game to the level of a confident analyst.
We are a staff of passionate football fans who love the game and love analyzing film. It is this passion that helps create these breakdowns.
