Atlanta is 3-2, tied with Tampa Bay for second in the NFC South, a game behind Carolina. The three victories happen to be just one fewer than the Falcons won all last season when they finished 4-12. Their most recent win, a 27-24 road victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field is certainly the most impressive. In that game, Ryan was a steady 16-for-26 for 194 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Now, Ryan certainly has looked like the rookie he is at times and his performances had been up one week and down the next but overall, he has given his team a chance to win the games the Falcons were supposed to have a shot at winning (Detroit and Kansas City) and last Sunday, he showed he can help them pull off an occasional upset.
