Texans prepping for Ravens' Heisman Package

The Baltimore Ravens' diverse offensive personnel allows them to run a unique play featuring three former Heisman Trophy winners in their backfield.

JOHN McCLAIN: Ravens' Lamar Jackson a unique threat for Texans

It's been dubbed the Heisman Package, which the Ravens unveiled Sunday during a 49-13 blowout win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

The triple-option play involves quarterback Lamar Jackson, backup quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Mark Ingram.

Against the Bengals, Jackson adeptly executed a fake handoff to Ingram before taking off downfield. He pitched the football to Griffin, who completed a 12-yard run.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh told reporters his team has practiced the play for a while and noted that it could lead to throws out of this alignment, too, if they continue to utilize the Heisman Package.

The Ravens lead the NFL in scoring with a 33.3 average heading into Sunday's game against the Texans at M&T Bank Stadium.

Plays like the Heisman Package designed by offensive coordinator Greg Roman are among the many unconventional wrinkles the Texans' defense is prepping for this week.

That's tough, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. I've known Greg for a long time. He's an excellent coach, a very creative coach, a guy that knows how to use the players that he has and understands their skill sets. Very good at understanding the personnel that he has.

So, I think we've got to be ready for anything. It's very difficult to be ready for anything. You've got to make sure that you're doing your job and playing as disciplined as you can. But we have to be ready for different things, different wrinkles, no doubt about it.”
