The Pittsburgh Steelers welcome the Atlanta Falcons to town for their home preseason opener on Saturday afternoon. The Steelers walloped the Giants in Gotham last Friday, 20-12, while the Atlanta Falcons fell on the road to the Miami Dolphins, 23-20. It was the reserves who saved the day for Miami, as the Dolphins put up 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to win (in an eerie playback of Super Bowl LI). As the starters emerge onto the field for both teams, we will get a truer look at both teams’ best foot forward.

The Cleveland Browns gave their fans a real show in their preseason opener, coming back to beat the New Orleans Saints, 20-14. Now they prepare to welcome the New York Giants, a team with an offense that can be just as scary as the Saints’ and a defense that is much more talented than the one from the Crescent City. The Giants come to town nursing their own pride after taking a 20-12 loss at home, as the Pittsburgh Steelers pretty much did what they wanted offensively without putting their big name stars out on the field.

The Denver Broncos visit the San Francisco 49ers in the second preseason game for both squads. The Broncos went to Chicago in their opener and came away with a 24-17 win, as Trevor Siemian appears to have cemented his hold on the starting quarterback position. The 49ers roared back from a late deficit with 18 points in the fourth period to take a 27-17 decision in Kansas City over the Chiefs, after Iowa rookie C.J. Beathard outperformed Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, leading the Niners to the win — albeit against the Kansas City reserves. Which team will come out ahead on Saturday night?

The Houston Texans welcome the New England Patriots to town on Saturday night for the second preseason matchup for both teams. The Texans loved what they saw out of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson in their opener but still fell to the Carolina Panthers, 27-17. The Patriots apparently forgot to bring their defense to their preseason opener, as they were tattooed for 31 points by the Jacksonville Jaguars in a seven-point loss. Chad Henne found Keelan Cole for a 97-yard touchdown pass and Corey Grant dashed for a 79-yard touchdown run. Both teams have some issues to shore up as they take the field in the Lone Star State.

The Green Bay Packers head to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Redskins in week 2 of the 2017 NFL preseason betting action on Saturday night. Washington took a shellacking in their preseason opener, as they were only able to muster a single field goal in a 23-3 loss in Baltimore against the Ravens.

We’re about six weeks away from the end of the Major League Baseball regular season, and you’re starting to see some dynamics shift in the MLB series. Now that the pressure is really off the Texas Rangers, for example, they have won four of five and may actually have a chance to close in on that second wild card in the American League. The St. Louis Cardinals have woken up to find that the National League Central could be theirs with a hot streak.

The Minnesota Vikings opened their NFL preseason in fine fashion, overwhelming the Buffalo Bills by a 17-10 score. It was their solid defense and their evenhanded offense that dominated the rhythm of the game, keeping the Bills from mounting a challenge. Case Keenum went 11 for 16 for 121 yards, building a case to stay on the roster along with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater. Dalvin Cook has some work to do, as he just picked up 13 yards on five attempts. The Seahawks made a huge statement in their opener, hanging 48 on the Los Angeles Chargers, and now they return for their home preseason debut.
