  • Ryan completed 29 of 44 pass attempts for 265 yards and two touchdowns, adding a one-yard rushing TD over three carries while losing one fumble during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers. Roles were reversed from the division rivals' Week 15 showdown, as Ryan and the Falcons found themselves in a significant halftime deficit. Ryan rallied his team from 13 points down, helping Atlanta cut Tampa Bay's lead to three points on two separate occasions in the second half. However, the Falcons were unable to score on their final two possessions, as Tom Brady and the Buccaneers mounted 14 unanswered points to close out the regular-season finale. Ryan's 4-12 starting record from 2020 ties the worst of his career, but $23 million of base salary going into next season reduces flexibility in potentially moving him. There's no telling what the incoming general manager and head coach will consider Ryan to be at this phase of his career, rendering his long-term future with the organization tentative. With Ryan entering his age-36 season, Atlanta may consider adding his potential replacement sooner rather than later.

  • Ryan completed 27 of 35 pass attempts for 300 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Chiefs. Ryan also put the ball on the ground with the second fumble in his past four starts after Alex Okafor sacked him during the first quarter. The veteran quarterback recovered, however, and he ultimately put together his second consecutive turnover-free start. The 2016 MVP has composed a 5:0 TD:INT over the past two weeks, while Atlanta's final nine-play, 54-yard drive placed the team in position for a game-tying kick in the waning seconds before Younghoe Koo missed just his second attempt over 37 tries this year. Ryan's individual play is at least trending in a positive direction as the team heads into its 2020 finale on the road against Tampa Bay.

  • Ryan completed 34 of 49 pass attempts for 356 yards and three touchdowns, adding a 16-yard rush during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Buccaneers. Ryan's Week 15 TD:INT was much more presentable than the 1:3 stat line he posted during last Sunday's loss to the Chargers, which consisted of a dreadful late-game effort of two picks over his final four attempts. The 2016 MVP came out red-hot with a pair of TD passes in the opening 23 minutes of regulation, but Atlanta went on to be outscored 31-10 in the second half. Ryan's Falcons have dropped four of their past five games, though for invested fantasy GMs, at least the 35-year-old was capable of throwing three-plus TDs with no INTs for the third time this season.

  • Ryan completed 21 of 32 pass attempts for 224 yards, throwing one touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Chargers. The 2016 MVP was dreadful in crunch time, throwing two interceptions within a string of four pass attempts in the final four minutes of regulation. Though Ryan has been contending with a third straight losing season since the Falcons jumped out to an 0-5 start, he'd been relatively disciplined in the INT column coming into Sunday, committing just eight over his first 12 appearances of 2020. Week 14 marked his first three-pick performance of the year, and Ryan has been held to one or fewer passing TDs three times over his past four outings. The 35-year-old now heads into the first of two late-season matchups against Tampa Bay in Week 15.

  • Ryan completed 22 of 39 pass attempts for 185 yards, throwing two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 43-6 win against the Raiders. He also registered five yards on his lone carry. Ryan and the Falcons continue to enjoy new life under interim coach Raheem Morris, now reaching a 4-2 record since the firing of Dan Quinn. Ryan hasn't exactly lit it up in the scoring column during that span, as he's been held to two or fewer passing TDs in four of the six performances. He's also posted fewer than 235 passing yards in back-to-back games after averaging 305.1 passing yards per contest Weeks 1 through 9. The 35-year-old certainly prefers wins over lofty box score numbers, but it will be a challenging matchup in both respects next Sunday, when Atlanta takes on New Orleans for the second time in three weeks. Ryan completed just 51.4 percent of his passes, throwing two INTs and no TDs when the Falcons lost 24-9 to New Orleans on Nov. 22.
