Atlanta heads to Jacksonville to face former offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey and the Jaguars.
The Falcons head to Jacksonville -- the NFL franchise replete with current and former Atlanta players and coaches -- to conclude their 2012 preseason having recently acquired yet another former Jag in quarterback Luke McCown.
McCown will be a focal point for the Atlanta offense, as he'll have just one game to get the Falcons' playbook under control before he's named either the second or third string quarterback, depending on the team's final judgement of undrafted rookie Dominique Davis. Meanwhile, expect to see a lot of second-year running back Jacquizz Rodgers, who has been somewhat limited so far this preseason, and two rookies - Lamar Holmes at left tackle and Peter Konz and right guard - getting extensive work.
