If you can believe it, we’re one week away from the official start of Atlanta Falcons preseason.

Washington’s a good first challenge for Atlanta, with an improving roster that features a potentially strong defense and receiving corps, at the very least. You’ll see very little of the starters, this being a preseason game, but Atlanta just needs a decent team to test their new-look roster against. This opponent will do.

Here’s the basic things you need to know for next week’s game. You’ll see us ramping up our coverage on Monday, in case you need something else to look forward to.

When: Thursday, August 11, 7 p.m. EST

Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia

What’s the Prediction? The Falcons win again, not that it matters, being preseason and all that.
