.500 - Preseason record for the Falcons, their best since 2010. The Falcons posted 2-2 preseason records in each of its first three seasons under Head Coach Mike Smith (2008-2010) but have struggled since then, finishing 0-4 in 2011, 1-3 in 2012 and 0-4 in 2013.
4 - First-string offensive linemen who started in tonight's game. Only right guard
10 - Penalties for the Falcons tonight against the Jaguars. While penalties have been way up this preseason across the entire League, Head Coach Mike Smith expressed concern after tonight's game at the team's 38 infractions in the preseason. To put that in perspective, Atlanta was penalized 55 times the entire 16-game 2012 season (which led the NFL in least amount that year).
10 - Players each NFL team may sign to their practice squads on August 31, after reducing their rosters to 53 players a day earlier. The NFL announced this week that practice squads for the 2014 and 2015 seasons will increase from the current maximum of eight players to 10 players. In addition, the criteria for Practice Squad eligibility has been expanded in two respects. First, a player must have a minimum of six games – up from the current three games – on a practice squad in order for that season to count as one of the player's maximum three permissible seasons of practice squad service. Second, each club will be permitted to sign up to two practice squad players who have earned no more than two accrued seasons of free agency credit. Absent this exception, a player who has earned one or more accrued seasons would not be eligible for a practice squad unless the player spent fewer than nine games on a club's 46-player active list in each of his accrued seasons.
22 - Players the Falcons must release between now and 4 p.m. ET Saturday afternoon to get down to the mandatory in-season roster limit of 53. While this is a time of huge disappointment and jubilation, depending on whether or not a player makes the final roster, remember that much can occur after Saturday's cutdown date and before the regular season opener on September 7 vs. the Saints. As other teams' rosters are finalized and hundreds of players hit the waiver wire, Falcons personnel staffers are actively monitoring each transaction to see if there is an opportunity to improve the final roster.
23 - Yards of total offense allowed by the Falcons' defense in the first quarter.
40 - Points scored by the Falcons heading into tonight's preseason finale, 31st in the NFL after three preseason games. Only San Francisco (24) had scored fewer. That made tonight's 24-point output a welcome sight, providing some momentum heading into the regular season.
43 - Hours until the Falcons must be down to the 53-man roster limit. Friday will be a tense and uncomfortable day for many at Flowery Branch team headquarters.
66 - Yards gained on the second quarter touchdown screen pass from quarterback
134 - Rushing yards in the preseason for rookie RB Devonta Freeman, which led the team. Freeman averaged an impressive 4.2 yards per carry on his 32 rushing attempts. Jacquizz Rodgers finished the preseason with 68 yards on 18 carries. Starter Steven Jackson did not play in any of the four preseason games as he nursed an injured hamstring. Jackson is expected to be ready to play in the September 7 season opener against the Saints.
148.5 - Quarterback rating for tonight's starter T.J. Yates. After being brought in during free agency to provide some veteran stability as a backup to
