Falcons' scheme plays into Nick Foles' favor

Falcons' scheme plays into Nick Foles' favor

Nick Foles has never gone up against the Falcons or head coach Dan Quinn's defense, but the Eagles' signal-caller has his share of experience – and success – against their Cover-3 scheme. The Seahawks famously employ Cover-3 as their base defense under coach Pete Carroll, though its use has spread across the NFL as Carroll's disciples have branched out. Gus Bradley took it to Jacksonville for four seasons until his firing in 2016 and has since moved on to a defensive coordinator position with the Chargers, while Quinn has used the system in Atlanta for the past three years.
