Both teams are coming off losses to start the preseason but there should be no panic.
For the Chiefs Pat Mahomes looks like the guy but don’t expect him to get too many reps this week.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM ET with the home Falcons looking to show their home fans a lot more than they did in their 17-0 loss to the Jets to open the preseason.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City is looking for more explosion in its offense this season. They scored just 10 points in losing to Houston with only to passing plays over 15 yards. It is early so we will have to see how it goes.
The defensive effort was good against Houston. They gave up some yards on the ground but a big chunk of those yards were from speedy reserve QB Joe Webb.
Even though it was just the first preseason game it never looks good to get shutout at any time especially for a team that knows offense is how it is going to win. Atlanta should be better in this one.
One interesting note from that preseason opener was how sharp Matt Schaub looked. He has come full circle in terms of getting back to Atlanta and he is more than capable of running an offense at this point of the season.
This game is still going to be pretty vanilla for both teams but I expect the Falcons to be much sharper and even a tad creative early to feel like they have truly shaken the rust off.
A second bad performance is going to be an especially bad look.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Atlanta -2.5
I am still not expecting to see much from the stars of either team in this one but Atlanta methodically gets a win at home to quell the outside voices.

The Falcons are able to put up some sevens instead of three and zeroes and get the win as a result. Cover too.
