What was the thinking behind this and does it occur very often in AF?
This is a special formation that Baltimore uses (they used it last year also)

They put both tackles on the left side and have Todd Heap lined up as a tackle on the right side. They usually run out of it. They had great success last year but the Steelers stuffed it

Last week on the goal line, they brought in both their backup tackle (Yanda) and Haloti Ngata as tight ends. Adding them and having McClain as a FB is damn tough to stop
