Week 1 is officially in the books, as we now turn our sights to Week 2. The Atlanta Falcons definitely didn’t get off to the start we all hoped they would, and now we can only look forward in hopes to see a different outcome in the upcoming games. On Sunday, the Falcons will travel south and face the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers which will be a tough game to bounce back in.

With the game only days away, the Falcons have revealed the depth chart for their first divisional game of the season, which you can view below.

You’ll notice a few changes between this up-to-date depth chart and the one released prior to the Eagles game last week. The most notable being that the team apparently views Drew Dalman as a flexible interior player, as he’s now listed as the backup at left guard, right guard and center. Whether that leads to any opportunities on this line—and whether it really places him ahead of Colby Gossett at left guard going forward—remains to be seen.

Josh Rosen, who came into Sunday’s game late when the team officially threw in the towel, is now listed as the sole backup quarterback behind Matt Ryan. If that continues, the Falcons may not keep three quarterbacks around much longer.

Also, tight end Parker Hesse has returned from the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list and appears on the depth chart. Outside of those changes, there’s not a whole lot to see, and Jalen Mayfield remains the starter at left guard following a literal “baptism by fire” this previous weekend.

We’ll see if these minimal changes make an impact as the Falcons fly south for a tough divisional matchup with the Buccaneers.
