WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Matt Ryan at Arrowhead: In three career games against Kansas City, Ryan has completed 57-of-83 passes for 788 yards, five touchdowns and one interception for a 113.9 passer rating and recorded a 136.4 passer rating in his only career game at Arrowhead Stadium.
Another 100: Calvin Ridley leads the Falcons with a career-high 77 receptions for a career-high 1,192 yards and nine touchdowns this season. The third-year receiver is tied for the league lead with seven games with 100-plus receiving yards this season and notched at least 100 receiving yards in each of his past three games. On Sunday, he can join Julio Jones (six games), Terance Mathis (four) and Andre Rison (four) as the only players to reach that mark in four consecutive games in franchise history. Since being drafted by the Falcons in 2018, Ridley has tallied the most receiving yards (2,879) and receiving touchdowns (26) through a player's first three seasons in franchise history. With a receiving touchdown on Sunday, Ridley would become the fifth wide receiver to record multiple seasons with 10-plus receiving touchdowns in their first three years over the past 25 years.
Koo as a cucumber: Younghoe Koo has set single-season franchise records for made field goals (35) and made field goals of 50-plus yards (eight) in 2020 and has made 27 consecutive field goals dating back to Week 4, the longest such streak in a single season in franchise history. If Koo makes his next three attempts, he would tie Matt Bryant (30) for the most consecutive made field goals overall in franchise history.
