Matt Ryan

QB, Boston College

Since the Atlanta Falcons clobbered the Houston Texans at home in Week 4, QB Matt Ryan has had two consecutive pedestrian games. He was the worst player in Week 5 versus the Washington Redskins for the Atlanta Falcons, turning the ball over three times. The turnovers continued against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football.

Will Sunday be the return of Good Matt Ryan? I think so. With an inspired offensive line, a stout running game, and a finally healthy receiving corps, Matt Ryan has a terrific opportunity to play at a high level on Sunday. It wouldn’t shock me to see him get NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

I’m looking at Matt Ryan completing 25-30 passes for 325 yards and three touchdown passes against a hole-y Tennessee Titans’ secondary. Having ten days to prepare for the Titans, after already seeing the team in the preseason bodes well for Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive game plan.

Since Marcus Mariota will not play, expect for Matt Ryan to play with more poise in the pocket that he has shown thus far in 2015 on Sunday. Tomorrow is a wonderful game for Matt Ryan to not turn the football over. The stars are aligning for the Atlanta Falcons to have a dominating game against the Tennessee Titans.
