I am really excited for this one. We will get to see the first team offense and defense for at least the whole first half. Justin Hunter should be in line for another big game here- although the Falcons are aware of what he can do because he torched them in the joint practice earlier in camp.
This will be a good test for the first team defense. They finally get to go against a really good quarterback. Of course they haven't done so well against the scrubs they have faced, but maybe the light came on this week.
We will also get another extended look at Zach Mettenberger because Charlie Whitehurst is not going to play. It is good for Mett to get all of the reps he can this preseason, so he can be ready if something happens to Jake Locker.
What will you be watching?
