The second preseason game is kicking off at 4 p.m. on Sunday, as we noted earlier today, and it’s time to think ahead to it a little bit. Even though the second halves of these preseason games can be deathly dull, I find myself looking forward to the next one.
This one will pit the Falcons against the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the AFC’s few annual contenders, and a team with a lethal offense that features Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell, who are both small planets that randomly fire lasers off into space.
For me, it’ll be seeing how the Falcons’ defense looks against a strong Steelers offense, even if it’s only for a series or two. Atlanta was hardly challenged by Miami’s backup and third-string quarterbacks, if we’re being honest, so I want to see that fast and physical unit looking great again versus an even stronger offense. Fingers crossed.
What are you looking forward to? Let us know and then use this as your open thread for the night!
