The Falcons kick off NFL preseason action against the Denver Broncos in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. This extra preseason game will provide Atlanta's coaching staff a precious additional opportunity to evaluate some of the younger players.
Therefore, it's unlikely some of the more notable names on the Falcons roster see much time, if any, on the field Thursday night. But there are still a lot of exciting reasons to check out Atlanta's return to the football field, and we'll be keeping you up to date on any news and providing our analysis during the game in this live blog.
So, sit back, relax and get ready for some football!
