Preseason Falcons vs Jaguars – 3 Things to watch for 

Matt Bryant’s BACK!!!

After last week’s debacle against the Miami Dolphins. Dan Quinn point of emphasis was on the red zone. Matt Ryan threw yet another interception. Dan Quinn wasted no time working on it this week. 

What should we expect? 

1) Quinn made it quite clear certain players will play longer than others. If you saw last game both fronts played awful… Including Matt Ryan who played into the second quarter. 

Expect Ryan to play at least the first two series. If Ryan scores on the first drive… Do not expect Ryan to play the rest of the game. 

Matt Schaub & Matt Simms should see most of the game. Simms ( Shanahan’s best pal) beat out Quarterback Sean Renfree for the third quarterback position….should see the bulk of the snaps. 

2) Terron Ward comes back from his ankle injury that kept him out of the first three preseason games. Keep an eye on him… He has to make an instant impact to stay off the bubble. 

Going to be interesting to see how Ward performs. He has to make an impact tonight…or else Brandon Wilds will take his spot. 

3) Defensively, tackling continues to be main point of practice. Quinn will be watching to see how guys finish tackles with authority. 

Don’t expect starters to play much into the game… This will be an opportunity for backups to make last impressions on the coaching staff.
