Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons vs. Cincinnati Bengals

After a lackluster Week 1 where he was held scoreless with 251 passing yards and one pick, Matt Ryan is coming in hot. Over the last two games, he has thrown for 646 yards with seven touchdowns to one interception, doing so against division rivals, Carolina and New Orleans. It’s a good matchup for Ryan who will look to extend a streak of quarterbacks who have thrown at least two touchdowns against the Bengals to four. With Calvin Ridley’s coming out party, the Falcons are no longer a one-note, stagnant offense. Having a true threat on the opposite side of Julio Jones spreads the defense out. If Ryan gets enough time, he can and will pick the Bengals apart, especially if they decide to play zone. – Ernie Estrella
