NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Atlanta Falcons Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Preseason winds down tomorrow, with the Atlanta Falcons hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers in what’s likely to be a final extended audition for roster hopefuls on both squads. After this, the entire NFL has a few days to mull 37 cuts, meaning this game will take on outsized importance for players like Darren Hall, Albert Huggins, and Xavier Malone who have are hoping to prove they deserve to make the 53 man roster.

That, if nothing else, will make for a compelling three or so hours of television. We’ll see if we get a glimpse of the starters—that was still to be determined as of the time I’m writing this—but the team has to carefully weigh who they’re keeping with quality depth so necessary for a team that fancies itself a 2023 contender. For some position groups, like a seemingly shaky offensive line, the difference between a stellar performance and a poor one might not make a difference in whether a player makes the roster so much as if he stays, with the team able and often willing to look at the trade market and the post-cutdown landscape.

With that in mind, here’s how you can watch tomorrow night.
