Atlanta Falcons key #2: Defenders must keep their eyes on the quarterback at all times
Justin Fields has run through the past couple of defenses he has gone against, so why would that plan change against the Atlanta Falcons?
Fields is a dynamic runner, he set the record for most rush yards by a quarterback in a single game just a couple of weeks ago. Each defender must keep one eye on him at all times because when he hits the accelerator, he is gone.
His ability as a passer has been boom-or-bust, so the coaches are going to try to take advantage of his athletic ability first and foremost.
The defenders must have discipline at all times because he will take off on dropback plays or zone reads. You must make him beat you through the air.
