Week 2 of the NFL pre-season will feature a doubleheader of matchups to watch on Sunday. First up, the Atlanta Falcons visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in a battle of playoff teams from last season. The Falcons are of course known for failing to win the Super Bowl after holding a large lead on the New England Patriots. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the team that Tom Brady and the Pats usually has to get through to get to the big game. Here's the latest Falcons vs. Steelers game information including matchup odds, TV channels, and live streaming options.

Matchup preview

In Week 1 of the pre-season, the Atlanta Falcons took a loss at Miami, 23-20.

Starters Matt Ryan and Devonta Freeman hooked up on an early touchdown pass, but they didn't play a whole lot of time. It's unknown how much time either will play today, although Freeman is listed as questionable for his status.

On the other side, the Pittsburgh Steelers started their NFL pre-season with a 20-12 win over the New York Giants. "Big Ben" Roethlisberger didn't play at all, but backup Joshua Dobbs had 100 yards and a touchdown thrown on his 8-for-15 passing day. The team also picked up a TD on the ground from Terrell Watson who finished with 44 yards on his 10 carries. That's good news as the team continues to deal with their running back situation as Le'Veon Bell has been a holdout during the summer and hasn't been practicing with the team. He's listed as questionable to play in today's game, although starting QB Ben Roethlisberger may get on the field a bit.
