Can you smell that? It’s the regular season, and it’s almost here. Before that, the Atlanta Falcons host the Baltimore Ravens in the final preseason game. This contest will end a number of positional battles and roster spots will be determined.

The starters have been impressive for the most part, particularly on defense. Matt Ryan was able to move the football at will against the Titans and Jets, but his offensive line were dominated by a tough Dolphins front seven last week. This game isn’t about the starters, it’s about the rest.
