The 3 ingredients to a good pass play are space, match-ups and leverage. The Patriots “juke series” contains all three of those elements. The juke series is designed to create space for a quick slot receiver to work off the leverage of a slower linebacker. It has become a staple of the Patriots offense, and has yielded great results. In the season I cut up (2014) when running the juke series, the patriots went 34/42 (81%) for 304 yards (7.2 yard average).
