FALCONS OFFENSE VS. BRONCOS DEFENSE

Falcons gained 364 total yards – They were 11-18 on third down conversions
Broncos starting LBs: Winborn and Woodyard on the outside, MLB Larsen
Falcons again used the unbalanced OL with Dahl, Blaylock and Weiner on the left side with Clabo at RG and Hartsock at RT
Broncos dime package featured Williams and Paymah as the extra cornerbacks – Winborn was the only LB
Falcons version of the “Wildcat” featured Norwood in the shotgun – Also direct snapped the ball to Snelling
Ryan a playmaker element to his game, Can make throws on the move outside the framework of the offense – Great example was White 37 yards versus “cover zero”, Blitzing DB Williams got in clean

Moss aligned all over the formation in the Broncos dime package, both with his hand on the ground and standing up as a LB

Can Bandon LaFell keep it up and emerge a […]

  • Week 5 story lines October 3, 2014
    Here are 88 story lines I’ll be following in Week 5 . Minnesota (2-2) at Green Bay (2-2) Will the Vikings continue to play like they did last week?
