With the Falcons focusing on Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson has to capitalize on that vulnerability.
Atlanta knows it must stop the run, but doing so makes it susceptible to play-action, Wilson rolling out and making plays with his feet.
Against the Redskins he accounted for 67 rushing yards on eight attempts, 28 of which came because Washington failed to put a linebacker spy on him. We can certainly expect the Falcons to be wary of this dynamic, so anticipate any blitz coming from the outside.
Even still, Wilson can dice up Atlanta's pass defense.
Despite being opportunistic throughout 2012, the Falcons gave up a 61.2 completion percentage and managed only 29 sacks. So the pass rush won't be much of a factor, and Wilson's mobility reduces that impact for Atlanta even more.
The rookie knows how to spread the field incredibly well, and completing 64.1 percent of his throws in the regular season speaks volumes. Having tossed only 10 picks on the year, Wilson won't give the Falcons many play-making chances when dropping back.
