Preseason Week 1 is here, with games officially kicking off tonight around the league. The Atlanta Falcons will be up on Friday at 6:00 PM ET, with a tilt against the Detroit Lions. It’s an interesting first test for the new-look Falcons against an opponent that is in a pretty similar situation in terms of roster and competitive timeline—though most seem to be higher on Detroit’s prospects in the 2022 season than Atlanta’s.
As is tradition, we’ll once again be bringing you full live play-by-play coverage of all the preseason games here on The Falcoholic. Why, you might ask? Well, because the folks announcing these games simply don’t have time to learn all about the third and fourth team players who will likely be on the field for the majority of snaps. Adnan Ikic and I, however, do have the time. It also helps that we were both at training camp at various times over the past two weeks, and have a pretty good idea of where the depth chart stands.
Our coverage begins at 5:45 PM ET on Friday, and we’ll take you through the entirety of the game. Yes, even the fourth quarter where we’ll likely get a heavy dose of Feleipe Franks at quarterback. Honestly though, this is the most exciting preseason we’ve had in a long time. Atlanta has a completely reshaped roster (except the offensive and defensive lines, notably), two new quarterbacks at the top, and an exciting group of rookies taking the field for the first time.
