Ryan Sidelined — And That's a Good Thing


With just less than two minutes left in the third quarter, Matt Ryan put on a baseball cap while backup QB Chris Redman put his helmet on and began warming up.

And it was for good reason.

The Falcons went up 41-7 late in the third quarter, and with the game all but out of hand, Ryan got some rest while Redman got some snaps.

Ryan's day finished with the following eye-popping statline: 19-of-26, 224 yards, three touchdowns and a 137.7 passer rating.
