We already know there are quite a few connections between the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons as they prepare to face each other in the preseason opener.
One of those connections will be a starter.
Falcons' rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon will start against the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night at weakside linebacker.
Weatherspoon of course went to Mizzou before becoming the Falcons 2010 first round pick.
