Channel, schedule, and all the other essential information for Week 2 of preseason.

Welcome to Falcons gameday! After Atlanta dispatched the Lions last week, their next test will be a Jets team that is considering whether they’re even going to play most of their starters, and it’s also a Jets team that fared well against the Falcons in joints practices this past week.

The hope is that Atlanta will walk out of this one with a win just for fun, but the more important piece is that they look good against the Jets and emerge from tonight healthy. After this it’s five cuts and less than a week until the final preseason game and the full 53 man roster cutdown, so things are going to get busy very quickly. Coming out of tonight unscathed and feeling good would be a significant boost for an Atlanta team tired of hearing they’re headed for the NFL’s basement in 2022.

Here’s everything you’ll need to know to watch the game tonight. As always, go Falcons!

Odds: Odds are provided by our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, but I’m going to urge you not to bet on preseason games. Again. Please don’t.

Key Questions: How will the Falcons’ offensive line hold up against a good, pretty deep Jets front? Can the Falcons’ defense prove their joint practice mishaps were just practice mistakes and they’re on course for a quality season in 2022? Will the Jets (and Falcons, for that matter) even play their starters?
