Falcons vs Dolphins
“I’m excited,” safety Bobby McCain said. “It’s the first preseason game, first game coming up. Everybody should be excited. Football season is back. Not even just to be tested just to be out there on the field with your brothers and your teammates, it’s fun. I’m excited.”
For McCain and his teammates, the preseason games represent an opportunity to go up against different players for the first time in 2019.
“We’re just coming out every day and just getting better and just trying to execute what the coaches want,” defensive tackle Akeem Spence said. “It’s getting closer to the games, so guys are getting tired of (hitting) one another. It’s about that time. I just can’t wait to get to the season to start playing.”
With the first game three days away, defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick said the practice Monday had a little different feel.

The Falcons will play their second preseason game of 2019 when they travel down to Miami to face the Dolphins on Thursday evening. After losing 14-10 to the Broncos in the Hall of Fame Game, the Falcons (0-1) will continue to evaluate their younger players while also getting the veterans “some plays for sure” as coach Dan Quinn put it Monday.
Football returned with the 2019 NFL Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 1, but the rest of the NFL joins the action this week with the dawn of Week 1 of the preseason.
