    [Sound issues]
    RPO = Run Pass Option. Gives offense multiple ways to attach defense.
    Three types: Peak (second level, reading backside LB), Read (think option but pitch replaced with pass), Alert (option to pass you can make right away based on pre-snap alone; no need to make read post-snap; run play with route option).
    Over 200 RPO plays.

    New Handoffs

    Allows for multiple characters to interact for handoff.
    Opens door to new play types.
    New Jet Sweep Plays: Jet Pass Fk Zone, Zone Fake Jet, Jet HB Zone, PA Jet Sweep.

    Playbooks

    New Trick Play: Philly Special
    12 Pistol formations in Ravens offense.
    Playbooks will be updated throughout the year.

    Ball-carrier moves: Improved stiff-arms
    Spin & Jukes more balanced
    Auto-strafe removed
    Ball Hawk now defaulted to ON
    Strip Ball improved; cannot be spammed

    Strange that outside of motion caps they have not really shown any gameplay.
