I spent several years away from watching football, both college and NFL, and now find terms I never heard before and do not understand. Can someone help me?
What does “run the table” mean, as in “Buffalo will have to run the table to get in the playoffs.”?
Also the term "hat on hat’; does that mean man-to-man coverage? Or does it refer to the apparently new rule against helmet to helmet blocking and tackling?
Other terms I understand but never heard until recently are “pick six” and “three and out”.
