Nick Foles not scared of Falcons’ D: ‘Someone is going to be open’

It seems like everyone is talking about how Nick Foles is going to doom the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday when they host the Atlanta Falcons. But Foles himself isn’t worried in the least about going up against Atlanta’s Cover 3 defense.“What they’re saying is, ‘Hey, we’re going to show you what we’re doing.’ That’s their mentality,” Foles said, per Jeff Kerr of 247 Sports. “And us, we’re going to say, ‘All right, we’re going to go play, we’re going to be aggressive and we’re going to go at you.’”In fact, if history serves as any indication, he will have success. Foles has a 3-0 record against teams that employ a Cover 3 defense, per Kerr. No wonder he seems practically giddy about facing Atlanta’s defense.
“Any time there’s success in a game, it’s where you’re comfortable,” Foles said. “You’re in a rhythm, you’re in the zone, and you’re just seeing your progressions. You have protection up front, your guys are running crisp routes. That’s the big reason any time with a Cover-3 defense you have success.
