The Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night in each team's fourth and final preseason game. This game is typically where teams take an extended look at backups and fringe players so they can determine which players will stick on the back-end of the roster and who will wind up on the practice squad. With that being said, here are five bold predictions for Thursday's game between the Jaguars and the Falcons.

5. Denard Robinson Will Rush For At Least 100 Yards

With it being the fourth preseason game, the backups should get plenty of action, meaning Robinson could see the bulk of the work at running back. The second-year pro leads the team in rushing through the first three games, and will cap off his impressive preseason with his best performance yet.

4. Falcons LB Jacques Smith Will Record Two Sacks

Smith has been making a name for himself for all the wrong reasons on HBO's Hard Knocks this season. The feisty undrafted rookie has yet to record a sack or make any sort of impact on the field this preseason, but he will finally get to put his money where his mouth is on Thursday and drastically improve his chances of making the final roster.

Stanzi is in a fight with undrafted free agent Stephen Morris for the third quarterback spot. Neither player has played well in the preseason, so Stanzi can claim the job with a strong game against the Falcons. Atlanta's defense is coming off a game in which they allowed 313 passing yards to the Tennessee Titans, so the opportunity is there for Stanzi.

2. T.J. Yates Will Throw For At Least 200 Yards

Yates is locked into a battle with Sean Renfree for the Falcons' backup quarterback job. Renfree has looked better throughout the preseason, so Yates will need a monster game if he hopes to have any chance of surpassing him. A player with as much experience as Yates should be able to put up solid numbers against third and fourth-string players.

It has been a rough preseason for Mike Brewster to say the least. He went from starting the first two games at center to playing with the third-team offense against the Detroit Lions. He likely has no chance of reclaiming his starting job, but Brewster will impress against the Falcons to lock down a roster spot.
