Double Coverage

What is Double Coverage?

A defensive scheme that uses two defenders to cover one offensive receiver during a play.

Sporting Charts explains Double Coverage

Star offensive players like wide receivers Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans and Wes Welker of the New England Patriots, often run their routes with two defensive backs trying to cover them. The goal is to reduce the effect elite players have on the outcome of the game.
