What to watch for
After the Falcons had a rough loss in preseason week 1, the team will be on the lookout for a better effort in their second game.
Even though preseason wins and loss ultimately don’t affect the regular season, you still want to see the team you root for making positive steps forward in the preseason.
Atlanta Falcons fans should look to see how the offensive line plays this week. If the team struggles to handle attacking defenders, this is a telling sign that the offense needs some work fundamentally.
Another thing to watch for is how rookie running back Ito Smith performs. If he is able to get the team’s offense flowing, he might be the player to replace Tevin Coleman in the lineup in the next few seasons.
The Kansas City Chiefs are loaded on starting offensive talent. That said, I don’t envision a scenario where the Chiefs starters play deep into this game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be a player to watch. If he is allowed time to throw, Kansas City could score quickly and leave the Falcons in the dust. With Matt Ryan likely only getting a series or two, I find it hard to see a Falcons win.
Falcons 17, Chiefs 28
