Atlanta Falcons vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Key Matchups for the Game

As you all know, the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the Atlanta Falcons at Heinz Field tonight.

This will be a matchup of two interesting quarterbacks. One is a two-time Super Bowl winner in Ben Roethlisberger, and the other is an up-and-coming quarterback by the name of Matt Ryan.

These two teams are definitely contenders for the Super Bowl, and in the third preseason game, starters tend to play a lot.

So what matchups are important?

Is it the Steelers' defense versus Matt Ryan, or perhaps Michael Turner? Can the Falcons' aerial attack tear apart the Steelers and expose their secondary as the ultimate weakness, as many say? Or will this shown just another thing about the Steelers that is overblown?

I do know that the two general managers and head coaches are two of the best in the game. The GMs don't normally make splashy moves in the offseason. However, this year the Falcons traded way up for the right to draft Julio Jones.

So, who will win? Let's find out.
