Falcons vs. Panthers: Matt Ryan looks to bounce back in Week 14

US PRESSWIRE

Matt Ryan is coming off his worst performance of the season after last week's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Matt Ryan hopes to bounce back after completing a season-low 54.5 percent of his passes for just 165 yards in Atlanta's 23-13 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 13.

The Falcons were 1-of-11 on third down against the Saints and intercepted Drew Brees five times to secure the 10-point win.

Ryan told D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he "doesn't worry too much about the statistics or those types of things" but knows the offense has to do a better job converting third downs.

Ryan is 312-of-462 passing for 3,590 yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season.

Ryan was 25-of-40 for 369 yards and three touchdowns in Atlanta's 30-28 win over the Panthers in Week 4. The Panthers sacked Ryan seven times in that game, and he credited their defense for being a "physical bunch" and doing a great job rushing the passer.

At 11-1, the Falcons have already clinched the NFC South division title and are currently the top seed in the conference.
