Figuring Out the Falcons
The Falcons are a Super Bowl contending team, but you would not know it from the first game that they played. They either had no intention of putting up points or were working on underneath plays all game. Or they have some serious problems. The Falcons could not run the ball; the offensive line could not push the defense back and the receivers made no ground after the catch. You do not want to overestimate a team after one preseason game. It is clear that the Falcons still have some work to do.
Calling on the Chiefs
The Chiefs were focused on getting quarterback Patrick Mahomes used to the speed in the first preseason game. They let him get the ball out quick to work on timing and chemistry with his pass catchers. They need to improve on defense, but they sat out plenty of the starters that should be playing in this game.
