Falcons vs. Redskins: Garrett Reynolds fitting in at guard

Atlanta Falcons offensive guard Garrett Reynolds is starting to fit in nicely at his position. How well has he done protecting quarterback Matt Ryan this season?

Atlanta Falcons guard Garrett Reynolds lost his starting job over the course of last year. When new offensive line coach Pat Hill came in, Reynolds rededicated himself to learning the fundamentals of his position. In an interview with Daniel Cox on AtlantaFalcons.com, Reynolds talked about how he is more confident this season:

"That's one thing, I just feel a lot more comfortable this year," he said. "Everything has just slowed down for me and I just feel a lot more confident really. If something doesn't go well one play, it's really just saying to myself 'Hey, that's done,' and then knowing what I need to do, my set and just get back to the basics."

Despite the Falcons giving up seven sacks in last week's victory over the Carolina Panthers, Reynolds has not given up a sack or a pressure this season, according to Pro Football Focus. However, Reynolds doesn't take much for individual accolades on the offensive line:

"I don't really keep up with any of that stuff," he said. "It's not just one guy. We're all in there as a unit and that's really how we play. If we give up one, that's on all of us. It's not an individual thing in the way we play. We're a tight group and if something goes wrong, we all work together to try to fix it."

The Falcons play the Washington Redskins on Sunday with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. The game will be televised on Fox.
