Charles McDonald​ from joined Jeff Benedict on Monday to chat about his anticipation for seeing the Atlanta Falcons face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the third preseason game.

"After seeing how the Falcons played the Chiefs, we're all excited to see what they can do against Jacksonville," said McDonald. He also discussed how Steve Sarkisian's play-calling in the second game reminded him of Kyle Shanahan, and how significant Austin Hooper can be as the forgotten guy in this offense.

Charles spoke about how disappointing the Pat Mahomes deep touchdown pass was to see for the defense and how he wished the pass-rush had come to life a little more. 

"Defensive line was a little quiet," said McDonald, "but the Chiefs have a good offensive line." He also described Duke Riley's impact on the defense, what to expect on Saturday against the Jaguars and what to look for.

He also spoke about Jalen Ramsey's comments and how he hopes Julio Jones puts it on him this week. ​

He closed by saying the "Jaguars defense matching up with the Falcons will be a good litmus test for where this team is."
