When going into a game everyone gives a ton of attention to the starters and marquee players. But what really matters in the pre-season is how the non-starters play. So let's take a look at five names to watch for during Thursday night's game.

Tandon Doss: Coming into the pre-season Tandon Doss was widely considered to be a lock for the fourth wide-receiver spot. However, due to an impressive pre-season by LaQuan Williams and Deonte Thompson, Tandon's chances of seeing the field come week one are becoming gradually slimmer. If Tandon wants to see significant playing time this season, he will have to have a strong showing these next two weeks.

Omar Brown: The undrafted free agent has been a hit so far this pre-season recording a whopping five turn-overs in two games. This game will be a good test to see if he can keep up this type of production, and if he can it could mean a spot on the 53-man roster.

Sean Considine: Originally signed to be a veteran presence in the secondary, Sean Considine is off to a wildly ineffective start so far. If Sean Considine continues to be stagnant and Omar Brown continues to turn heads, Considine may end up not making the final roster.

Sergio Kindle: The top draft pick of the 2010 NFL Draft ended up getting injured prior to the 2010 season. Missing all of 2010 and most of 2011, Sergio Kindle is finally healthy and back on the field. So look for Sergio Kindle trying to make an impact and getting back to the great pass-rusher we all thought he would be when he was drafted.

Justin Tucker: Justin Tucker and Billy Cundiff have been locked in a stalemate of a position battle up to this point in the pre-season. With the battle being so close it could all come down to a missed field-goal that decides who gets the starting job. Whether it be Cundiff or Tucker, the battle could be won tomorrow night.
