Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan gives credit to his teammates for a hard-fought 30-28 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

After kicker Matt Bryant's field goal lifted the Atlanta Falcons past the Carolina Panthers, 30-28, on Sunday, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was quick to give credit to the entire team's effort for the victory, including his wide receiver Roddy White, who was on the receiving end of two long passes on the day.

"To start off, good win for our team," Ryan told reporters in the post-game press conference. "It took all 60 minutes this week and we knew that coming into it. It always does when playing Carolina."

Ryan also highlighted White, who counted for 169 yards and two touchdowns on the day, for his ability to turn practice reps to game-day performance.

"The coverage that they had kind of matched it up one on one on the safety and I just threw it down there, threw it high and far and to the spot that we talk about, we practice that, that the spot we talk about and Roddy went up and made a great catch, he just made a great play," Ryan said. "Our guys did a great job of pass protecting and giving us the time that we needed to throw it down there."
