NFL Preseason Free Pick: Take the under. Expect both coaches to rely on their backups in this game. Atlanta is looking to make a run to the Super Bow so there's no reason to play Julio Jones or Tony Gonzalez. Steven Jackson could get a brief look tonight but they know what the veteran can do. When both teams take the field on Thursday night, the defenses should shine because Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green and speedy slot receiver Andrew Hakwins (ankle) are also out..

The Bengals have an underrated defense that ranked sixth in the NFL in yards allowed with 319.7 per game. In the last eight games of the season, they allowed just 12.8 points and totaled 31 sacks. The addition of veteran linebacker James Harrison can only help their cause.

These are playoff teams that want to look at their backups and have very little competition amongst the starters. Expect a lot of Dominique Davis for Atlanta against John Skelton for the Bengals. In other words, expect a low-scoring game.
