Five Takeaways from the Falcons’ Second Preseason Game Against Pittsburgh

By Cory Woodroof

The Atlanta Falcons’ second preseason game was like a game of Who’s Line is It Anyway – it was a cataclysm of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Wait a second that’s not right. Well, I mean, it kind of is when you think about it.

In a trip to the Steel City, the Falcons’ starters throttled the Pittsburgh Steelers’ starters (well, the ones not including the team’s three best players, Big Ben, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, who are all very good), and the Steelers’ reserves throttled the Falcons’ reserves.

By Cory Woodroof

The Atlanta Falcons blew a lead to an NFC East team Thursday night, but thankfully, this loss won’t make you feel hollow on the inside.

The Falcons lost 23-20 to the Miami Dolphin in the most meaningless game on the NFL calendar – the first preseason game. Matt Ryan had a touchdown pass to RB Devonta Freeman to cap the first team offense’s night, and the first-team defense showed their fast, physical play against a Matt Moore-led Miami offense. The two teams will meet again in October at the new stadium, when Jay Cutler is likely under center. Continue reading
