The Falcons finished the preseason strong with 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. On the eve of cuts, some players impressed and some players struggled. Let's relive the magic.

Please call your doctor if you experience chortles that last longer than four hours.

T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree both got an opportunity to play, and Yates definitely impressed.

Yates finished his day having completed 15 or 20 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns. But let's try to keep it in perspective, guys.

Yates also had one rough play where pass protection entirely broke down, and Yates just stood there and allowed a sack to slowly unfold, and it happened to be part of a less-than-great series.

The defense looked good overall, with two sacks, and they were very effective against the Jaguars on third down, but there were some defensive lapses.

Antone Smith didn't break off a big play every single time he touched the ball, which was annoying.

That was not to say that Smith had no big plays.

We all know Matt Bosher hits like a truck, and he actually got flagged for it last night.

Speaking of flags, there were penalties on penalties on penalties again on Thursday evening.

A win is a win, but at the end of the day, the best thing about this game was that it was the last thing standing between us and the regular season. Goodbye preseason.
