The exhibition game in NFL 2019 hold little value other than kicking off the regular NFL season. Most of the starters are going to sit out as per reports and second string sides will be jostling. Broncos coach Vic Fangio himself revealed that most of the starters will warm the bench from his side.
Atlanta Falcons will also follow suit with Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones confirmed to be sitting out. Although with Denver and Falcons looking at developing top draft picks on offensive line, they are lined up to play their starters there.
Left tackle Garett Bolles, left guard Dalton Risner and center Conner McGovern are the offensive picks for Denver here. Falcons’ NFL first round pick Chris Lindstorm may also get a chance to ease himself in.
This will also be the first match for 60-year old Fangio as a coach. Broncos are looking to get out of the major setback of losing consecutive seasons. Patriots won the last NFL season. Fangio hence will have his task cut out and would be wary of what a good start even in an exhibition match can do to confidence.
