Mark Gaughan's Play to Watch: Dolphins' WR screen pass

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase likes to run receiver screens, and he has a dangerous weapon to execute them in Jarvis Landry. It's an extended handoff, and even if it doesn't get big yards, Landry has the elusiveness to turn it into a positive gain. It's often a run-pass option for the quarterback.

Miami ran receiver screens for 11 and 14 yards at Buffalo last year. The play above was against Oakland in Week 9. Landry (14) was lined up inside Kenny Stills (10) and DeVante Parker (11). The screen could go to the outside receiver (Parker) breaking in, as well. Miami also will run it with just two receivers to one side.
