Preview of the game
According to Chiefs coach Andy Reid, we should expect to see quarterback Patrick Mahomes more and the starting offense than in his first preseason game. Reid told Chiefs.com that they will play the entire first half tonight.
“You have to go out and have a little more time, hopefully, you’ll get into the rhythm and get some scoring units,” Mahomes explained. “That’s something we did not have last week with the first team offense, so you want to go out and score.
“For us now, it’s just about making bigger plays and keeping the units running. I feel we would start to vanish, so now we are trying to keep these units and add some points. ”
Using Mahomes’ comments, Reid has a specific game plan in mind for tonight.
“Only to work the offense in its simplest form,” he revealed. “Continue working on your readings, your progressions, play situations, etc. It’s just another opportunity to get some representatives and work. ”
The Falcons are still watching their offense, and what they have at their disposal for the regular season. Quarterback Matt Ryan and offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian told Atlanta Falcons.com they want a more “efficient” performance from their starters. Sarkisian has even said he will call a play only to see if a player will respond and what he will do.
“We need to see how a player will respond to certain situations,” he explained. “And the biggest stress we can give them gives us more information. Whether it’s a runner in a specific race or a receiver on a specific route or a lineman in a specific block, it goes all the way to the line. Those things are invaluable to us. ”
Head coach Dan Quinn has kept quiet about who we should expect to see on the field tonight. Wide receiver Julio Jones and running back Devonta Freeman sat down during the team’s first preseason game, and Quinn has not said whether any of them will play against the Chiefs. Quinn was disappointed with the team’s 17-0 loss to the Jets and is eager to leave that behind him and his team.
