What you need to know for Falcons vs. Chiefs on Friday night

The Chiefs should provide a nice challenge for the team’s reserves.

The Falcons got their player evaluations out of the first preseason game against the Jets, but we didn’t get many plays that were all that fun to watch. Hopefully that’ll change here in the second game, and we’ll get to see our Falcons do some cool stuff, regardless of whether they win or lose.

This week’s opponent is a Chiefs team that typically winds up among the AFC’s elites, one with a new quarterback (Patrick Mahomes) and plenty of genuine talent on both sides of the ball. We’ll only get a glimpse at the starters, in all likelihood, but KC has reserves who can challenge Atlanta’s roster hopefuls, and that’s really what we need.

We’ll be looking more closely at the Chiefs in the coming days, but for now, here’s what you need to start planning your Friday night.
