The NFL season continues to creep closer as the preseason wraps up the second full week of the preseason. The Falcons had an eventful offseason, and not in the best way. They lost Calvin Ridley for the entire season due to a league violation. They also begin life after Matt Ryan and will look to get a good look at Marcus Mariota, Desmond Ridder and Felipe Franks. This is a very inexperienced quarterback room aside from Mariota’s time in Tennessee.
The Falcons will also have Drake London, Bryan Edwards, and Olamide Zaccheaus as their wide receiver 1, 2 and 3. This is a total rebuild.
The Jets have seemingly been rebuilding for a long time, and again took another blow when ‘Franchise’ quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a knee injury. The positive for them is backup quarterback Joe Flacco that has a ton of experience, including a lot of playoff experience and a Super Bowl championship. Mike White will enter as backup to Flacco until Wilson returns, but he had some good outings last season.

The Atlanta Falcons won their first preseason game against the Lions 27-23 behind a good showing from Desmond Ridder. He went just 10-22 but had 103 yards and a touchdown. Ridder also showcased his legs, which made him one of the best players in college as a dual threat quarterback, scampering for 59 yards on six carries. We expect Mariota to be the week one starter and he should get more time tonight instead of his 2/2, 36-yard performance against the Lions.
The Jets won their first game of the preseason 24-21 against the Eagles behind a big 21-7 second half. Mike White went 10/20 and 98 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. We expect Joe Flacco to get a bulk of playing with Zach Wilson sidelined. La’Mical Perine and Chris Streveler should again split time in the backfield for the Jets.
The Caesars Sportsbook has the Atlanta Falcons listed as 2.5 favorites for this game. The money line is listed as -145 for the Falcons. For the confident Jets backer, a money line bet on the +125 might be worth a look. This game should see a lot of first stringers getting most of the time. The total is set to 38 with both the over and under coming in at -110.
The next game up for the Falcons is Jacksonville while the Jets will play the other team from New York, the Giants.
The Caesars Sportsbook has all the preseason football action including money lines, spreads, total, first halves, second halves, and even live betting.
