Throughout the season, the Falcons had a lot of success on offense working out of 3-TE sets. It showed up for the first time when they beat the Broncos in Denver, using the heavy look as part of a power run game. In later games they continued to run out of the 3-TE look, but also made use of receiving TE’s Levine Toilolo and Austin Hooper on seam routes when teams went to base personnel or over-committed to the run.
Last week against the Seahawks, they added another wrinkle, having QB Matt Ryan dump a swing pass to RB Devonta Freeman for a big gain. Check out the video as I show you how they used formation against Seattle’s man-free coverage to create open space for Freeman to catch and run.Add to My RFN
