We can see before the snap that the defense looks to be lined up in what could be a cover 3 defense.  Remember, we only want to call this play against cover 3.

You can see the linebacker in the yellow zone comes down to defend against the fullback on the curl route.  The safety in the middle of the field starts moving to the right in order to cover the tight end on the streak route.

You can see the huge window we have to throw the ball into.  Our receiver is wide open.

If we do it right, our wide receiver will be open over the middle of the field.
