NJ Advance Media for via USA TODAY Sports

Scheme month comes to a thrilling conclusion on this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast. We take an expedited look at the evolution of the eternal cat-and-mouse game that is professional football and what modern defenses are doing to combat the latest offensive trends.

All that, plus diss tracks, the PAP list, and the "appendix."
