Turnovers and sacks are the name of the game when Mike Nolan runs a defense. The Falcons have improved tremendously, not just in terms of their turnover ratio—which is now at plus-10—but they have also improved their pass rush with 10 sacks through just four games.
The defense has intercepted the ball seven times, forced seven fumbles and recovered five of them. They have also made 11 tackles for a loss. If that's not making plays, then I don't know what is.
Sean Weatherspoon, William Moore, Thomas DeCoud and John Abraham are the biggest playmakers of the entire defense and have been enjoying the new scheme that allows them freedom to roam and disguise.
