5-Down: Parts of quarterbacks’ progressions

Let's wrap up the month with a themeless—look out for tricky clues and fun wordplay. This week's puzzle was constructed by Adrian Johnson and edited by Hoang-Kim Vu. When lifelong Wyoming cowboy and dad-joke factory Adrian isn't gallivanting through the mountains or cooking food so good his cats Snowy and Range can't resist it, he sometimes writes crosswords, like this one. 

Defector crosswords, launched in partnership with our friends at AVCX, run every Monday. If you’re interested in submitting a puzzle to us, you can read our guidelines HERE.
