Kickoff is happening right about now, folks, so settle in with your favorite beverage and let’s get to watching some Falcons football.
Tonight’s game is going to feature a full half of the Chiefs’ offensive starters. That should provide an excellent test for this defense, and an even better test for the backups when they inevitably get into the game. Seeing how Duke Riley, Isaiah Oliver and Damontae Kazee fare against a high-octane offense manned by a young, strong-armed quarterback is way more valuable than seeing how they do against the Jets’ second-stringers, to put it mildly.
The key information you need to watch is below, and we’ve included our customary tracker. Enjoy the game, everyone!

Key Questions: How will standouts (Damontae Kazee, Jonathan Celestin, Deadrin Senat) and disappointing players (Duke Riley, Ito Smith as a runner, the entire reserve offensive line) fare against a Chiefs team that seems likely to keep it starts on the field for a while? Will Matt Bryant play? Will Atlanta break their one game preseason scoreless streak?!
