The Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons will finish their preseason on Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. It likely isn't going to be the prettiest game, even for preseason action, considering both teams have yet to win in the exhibition season and likely won't play their top players prior to next week's regular season.
The Jaguars didn't play starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert in their loss last week to the Philadelphia Eagles, yet still managed to lead 24-16 after three quarters of action. They were eventually undone by a pair of fourth-quarter rushing touchdowns from the Eagles, but it wasn't the worst outcome for a team just looking for respectability this season.
The Falcons gave the Tennessee Titans their first victory last week, but they're likely going to be looking at staying relatively healthy rather than keeping the Jaguars out of the win column. The starting offense looked fine last week as Matt Ryan threw 19 passes without an interception and Steven Jackson rushed for 51 yards on 12 carries.
