Falcons/chiefs In Game Thread

1,186 posts in this topic

Falcons declared QB Dominique Davis, C Joe Hawley, OT Lamar Holmes, DE Lawrence Sidbury, DE Jonathan Massaquoi, CB Robert McClain and S Charles Mitchell inactive for Week 1 at Kansas City.

With an impressive August, Davis forced the Falcons to keep three QBs, but he remains behind savvy veteran Luke McCown on the depth chart. Atlanta's new up-tempo offense is healthy and poised to explode versus an injury-ravaged Chiefs defense in the opener.

Chiefs declared CB Brandon Flowers, FS Kendrick Lewis, NT Anthony Toribio, QB Ricky Stanzi, RB Cyrus Gray, TE Steve Maneri and DL Allen Bailey versus the Falcons in Week 1.

Pro Bowl ILB Derrick Johnson (ankle) will play, but the Chiefs are without their only true pass rusher in Tamba Hali (suspension) as well as the team's top cover corner, starting free safety and starting nose tackle. Filling in are OLB Andy Studebaker, CB Jacques Reeves, FS Abram Elam and NT Dontari Poe. Although Arrowhead Stadium is a daunting venue for opposing offenses, the Falcons passing attack gets a major matchup upgrade against an injury-riddled defense.
