The Jacksonville Jaguars return to TIAA Bank Field for the final “dress rehearsal” of the 2018 preseason for a majority of the starters, as they host the Atlanta Falcons for a 7 PM EDT kick off.
Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles and the first-team offense will look to perform better than their very up and down showing in Minnesota last weekend, and the first-team defense will look to build on an impressive showing the last two preseason outings against a very good Matt Ryan-led offense.
How to Watch: The game will be shown locally in the Jacksonville viewing area on the team’s official station, Action News Jax CBS 47. You can also stream the game for free if you’re in the Jaguars’ secondary markets, or the UK, Canada, and Mexico, via the team’s official website.

6:00 PM: The Falcons have announced their inactives, which include three star players, tonight.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Falcons announced that kicker Matt Bryant will be active for the first time this season as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday night for their third preseason game.
While Bryant will be on the field, Falcons starting cornerback Desmond Trufant will not be. Trufant will be held out of action, becoming the seventh Falcons player to be declared inactive for this game. The other six players who will sit out Saturday night’s game include Ricardo Allen, Devonta Freeman, Ben Garland, Marvin Hall, Deion Jones and Julio Jones.
5:40 PM: The Jaguars have announced who is sitting tonight. Shorter list than we have seen this preseason, which is good, but AJ Bouye being OUT is a surprise, although I’m totally fine with them sitting everyone tbh. Tyler Shatley starts at center, Tyler Patmon at corner. Disappointed we don’t get another look at Ronnie Harrison.

4:30 PM: Good afternoon, welcome to the live blog! This will be final time we see most if not all the starters until September 9, and we will also reportedly see the Jaguars debut of the team’s top free agent and draft pick from the off-season, in Andrew Norwell and Taven Bryan, respectively. I personally wouldn’t start any of the starting defense, or most of the offense, but never the less expect to see the team play guys well into the second half.
