Falcons' Matt Ryan: Stellar passing yardage haul in win

Ryan completed 31 of 44 passes for 378 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Falcons' 34-32 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. He also rushed four times for seven yards and caught a five-yard touchdown pass from Mohamed Sanu on a trick play.

Ryan wrapped up the season in stellar fashion, as the Falcons afforded their offensive stars their normal allotment of playing time. Ryan picked on the vulnerable Buccaneers secondary all afternoon, connecting with Julio Jones on nine occasions for 138 yards and a touchdown and hitting Mohamed Sanu for an additional 90 yards on seven completions. Then, he got in on the fun himself with his touchdown reception, which came early in the third quarter. Ryan finished what was a disappointing 2018 campaign from a team perspective with 4,924 yards and a sparkling 35:7 TD:INT. Atlanta will look to retool some in the offseason and will undoubtedly count on another MVP-caliber season from Ryan to help them bounce back in 2019.
