According to Jaworski, the Falcons shifted their line protection to Smith's side, with their left tackle, left guard and center zone-blocking to wall off the left side of the line. "It was a pretty effective way to negate those stunts between Justin Smith and Aldon Smith," he added. The right guard and right tackle handled the other side, often getting help from a back or a tight end to chip Ahmad Brooks, the outside linebacker opposite Aldon Smith. "I thought it was a pretty good plan," Jaworski said. And it was. Matt Ryan was sacked just once.
