We’re here, friends. It’s time to talk about the Atlanta Falcons during an actual game once more, and this time, it’s arguably the most pivotal preseason game of the year.
The Falcons will be heading into this one with multiple starters and key role players either benched or injured, which means it’s doubtful we’ll see the team roll out their starters for a full half. Even so, it’ll be a tune-up for the likes of Matt Ryan, Mohamed Sanu, and Vic Beasley, to name a few, and another opportunity for roster hopefuls to prove themselves against a challenging opponent.
Here’s what you need to know, plus a tracker. Let’s all talk about the game, and hopefully enjoy it.
