If the pattern of previous preseasons holds, the Falcons will give their starters decent run on Saturday against the Cardinals. That’s a good thing, on balance, because we’ll get a good look at the team we’re going to be watching (hopefully) all season.
It’s also the very first game in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, one of two Falcons games with Chik-fil-A in the stadium (thank god!), and the stiffest challenge this team has faced this preseason. All of that makes it worth your time to tune in, as I’m sure you’ll be planning to.
Here’s what you’ll need to know to watch the game.
