The Falcons' first team players performed well in their first preseason game -- a 31-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens -- and they'll look for continued progress against the Bengals.

They'll also be looking for a better effort from their reserves, who, conversely, struggled to execute against Baltimore. The Falcons didn't get much of anything from the offense during the second half of that game, and they also turned the ball over three times over the final 30 minutes of play.
