Utah just showed me a way to defend against the QB sneak with a push from the rear. Instead of trying to meet it head on pushing back, they pushed into the side of the sneaking group. The QB slid off to the side. In this case it didn’t prevent the first, but I think it stopped the offense with less than the typical gain.

Exposes the QB, I would think the second tier of defense would need to fill the line quickly
