New, comments

The crucial third game of the preseason features a matchup that has been lucrative for the Falcons in recent years.

The third week of preseason (and fourth Falcons game of August) is nearly upon us. What will be worth watching here is A) whether Washington is any good and B) whether the Falcons play their starters.

The latter is something we ought to get insight into over the coming days, though I’m hoping the Falcons are largely content to sit their best guys. They got Matt Ryan a ton of run and risked his health in the process, and Damontae Kazee, Kendall Sheffield, and Russell Gage all got hurt a week ago as it is. If you can keep your guys healthy, I think you have to do it.

Regardless, here’s how you’ll watch the second-to-last game of preseason. We’re getting close.
