It’s a short week here at the end of preseason, with the Jacksonville Jaguars coming to town to play the Falcons. We won’t see a lot of the starters, I’d wager, which makes this of interest primarily to those of us who care about the ongoing battles for right guard and the last few spots on the roster.
That right guard battle offers the most intrigue, but the Falcons are also looking to settle on their third running back, sixth wide receiver (if they keep one), backup interior linemen, and their cornerback depth. The team will let Thursday night play out and see where that leaves them with roster cuts due by 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Here’s the basics for the game. We’ll see you all there Thursday night, and of course, we’ll preview the matchup in the days ahead.
