Football is finally underway, and many of us are thankful. Thursday night football is here and the Falcons host the Bengals on ESPN. Now while this is the first preseason game, that certainly doesn’t mean there aren’t players we should be keeping out eye on. Throughout camp, we heard hype around certain players, now it’s time to see how they do in a full game. Here is a list of six players that you should keep your eye on during this football game.
1. Tyler Eifert. Did you really think there would be a list without him on there? Eifert was the best TE prospect and arguably the best prospect. It seems he has been doing well on offense and that he and Andy Dalton have been clicking. We’ve seen videos and heard reports on Eifert, but this is his first game in the NFL. Eifert will have a chance to show the whole nation that Gresham and him can become one of the best TE duos in the league. While Gresham is the starter, Eifert should still see a decent amount of time both with the first and second teams.
