Giants vs. Falcons: Matt Ryan lauds game plan, offensive line in victory

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Ryan sees improvement across the board in the Falcons' bounce back victory over the Giants and especially credits the game plan for the win.

After a key bounce back victory over the New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was quick to recognize the importance of rebounding after a surprising loss last weekend to the Carolina Panthers.

"It's really important for us, as a football team and as a locker room, to rebound from the way that we played last week," Ryan said during the postgame press conference. "I thought everybody's focus and preparation this week was spot on and it lead to the way we played today."

After the victory Ryan wanted to especially credit the offensive game plan and preparation that helped the Falcons dominate the Giants in a meeting of two teams that could be playoff-bound at the end of the season.

"I think that the run game was really crucial for us," Ryan said. "I thought that Dirk [Koetter] did a great job of mixing it up and making it difficult for their defensive line to get into a rhythm. [The Giants] have one of the better front fours in the league and our guys really stepped up to the challenge."
