The second preseason game is coming up quickly, only five days after the opener in Kansas City.
After the disappointment last week, this game against the Redskins presents a real opportunity for Zac Taylor to show some improvements. It’s one thing to be making mistakes in the preseason, but if he is to be a successful head coach in the NFL, he needs to be able to figure out how to fix those mistakes.
There will be some changes to the lineup this week after seeing some developments in training camp. First and foremost, Trey Hopkins and Michael Jordan will get a chance to run with the starters on the offensive line. Hopkins will start at center and Jordan at left guard, but both could likely play other positions throughout the night.
Ryan Finley will get to play with the second team, moving up one spot on the depth chart. Jeff Driskel will presumably take over the third team’s offense, but don’t be surprised if he lines up at wide receiver or plays on special teams.
