The Baltimore Ravens host the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night in the second week of preseason action. The game won't be televised nationally, but fans in the Baltimore and Atlanta markets have plenty of local viewing options.
The Ravens are coming off a convincing 44-16 win over the Buccaneers, but they're still trying to figure out who will catch Joe Flacco's passes. The tight end position is in dire straits with Dennis Pitta done for the year and Ed Dickson unlikely to be ready for Week 1. The team is reportedly looking at free agent Dallas Clark to fill the void.
The Falcons will try to shake off a 34-10 beatdown by the Bengals, but their offensive line continues to be a concern. Right tackle Mike Johnson was placed on IR with a gruesome leg injury, leaving the position down to Lamar Holmes and Ryan Schraeder. This will not help a running game that managed just 3.8 yards per carry against Cincinnati.
