Le'Veon Bell sets date for return to Pittsburgh Steelers

Steelers Invite 6-Year-Old With Leukemia To Training Camp

Maybe even the biggest as the Falcons are reigning NFC champions while the Pittsburgh Steelers have played against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

Reggie Davis keeps showing up in the games for Atlanta. On the Steelers' next possession, Dobbs rolled right on third-and-4 at the Steelers 47 and flipped a pass to Conner.

McKinley showed a quick burst on a couple rushes, and also showed relentless pursuit on a play where he ran a stunt with Courtney Upshaw and forced a rushed Dobbs throw that was dropped by running back James Conner. For McKinley, Sunday's short stint was a positive sign toward things to come.

"We were more detailed this week", Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said. He missed the team's first preseason game against the New York Giants and did not work out in a full capacity until the final week of training camp, a span of about two weeks. Instead, Martavis Bryant could be the starting receiver alongside Brown.

The Falcons is also expecting the return of it safety Keanu Neal, who will add some depth to the secondary and force the Steelers' wide receivers to think twice and determine before running over the middle.

Let's start with the Titans, who are coming off a somewhat surprising 9-7 season and want much more this time around. The Falcons converted a third-and-10, and then a third-and-8 on the drive that started with Matt Schaub at quarterback and ended with Matt Simms at quarterback. They will look to build on that performance in week two.

The point spread for today's game favors the visiting Falcons by three points, as of this report. Rookie linebacker Duke Riley was seen all over the field and recorded four tackles. Also, De'Vondre Campbell forced a fumble.

If you have to be in a room with Keith Armstrong tomorrow, I'm sorry.

That guy could start: This goes back to McKinley, who really impressed in his first game action since November of past year.

The Falcons are likely to begin the season with veterans Brooks Reed and Courtney Upshaw as the starting ends. Against a typically tough Carolina defense, the Titans not only collected 22 first downs, they spread them out evenly between the pass and the run. The blocked punt came shortly after another one of Bosher's punts was very almost blocked. Kazee walked off the field under his own power. Quinn previously said the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue. Undrafted rookies Reggie Davis and Quincy Mauger, both from the University of Georgia, each made big plays. Mauger, a safety, had an interception.
