The NFL preseason will come to an end on Thursday night and teams are using the final week to get one last look at a lot of their fringe roster players.

That’s why you won’t see much out of the starters and that’s why T.J. Yates has taken all of the snaps thus far in the Atlanta Falcons’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Yates got off to a hot start, finding running back Antone Smith for a 66-yard touchdown.

On the ensuing drive, Yates topped that play, connecting with wide receiver Freddie Martino on a 67-yard touchdown to give the Falcons a 21-7 lead.

You can watch the play below.
