Saturday, the Atlanta Falcons 7:30 pm ET preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers can be viewed on CBS in Atlanta and Pittsburgh, or on various other channels in surrounding areas. It's not the evening's national game, as that honor goes to the New England Patriots vs. the Detroit Lions. The world yearns for more Ryan Mallett, yo.
It was pretty awesome Thursday night when the Baltimore Ravens (Joe Flacco!) vs. Washington Redskins (Rex Grossman!) game was the main event. Nobody wants to watch Cam Newton or Michael Vick, right? Whatever.
For those of you lucky enough to get it, this will be the one Falcons preseason game to watch this season. Starters are expected to play about half the game, and Ray Edwards will take the field for the first time as a Bird. With roster cuts looming, more than a couple jobs will be solidified here.
Just please don't draw any conclusions from this game.
