NBC's Lester Holt looks at the role vectors play every time an NFL quarterback throws a pass. With the help of former NFL quarterback Joey Harrington, NSF-funded scientist John Ziegert of Clemson University and NSF-funded mathematician Rhonda Hughes of Bryn Mawr College explain how to use vectors to calculate the speed and direction needed for a completed pass. "Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League.
