Falcons vs. Panthers: Dirk Koetter not worried about Matt Ryan's recent performance

US PRESSWIRE

Atlanta offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter isn't concerned about the fact that Matt Ryan threw six interceptions over his previous three games.

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan isn't putting up the strong numbers he did earlier in the season, but offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter isn't worrying about it.

"Matt is one of the best quarterbacks in the league," Koetter said. "He’s not going to play perfect all of the time. We are trying to figure out how to get a win. I don’t worry too much about the numbers."

Ryan has thrown six interceptions and two touchdown passes over his last three games, and he was held to a season-low 165 yards passing against New Orleans last weekend. Still, the Falcons won all three of those games, helping them clinch the NFC South.

For the season, Ryan has completed 67.5 percent of his throws for 3,590 yards, 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

The Falcons, who are still working toward the No. 1 playoff seed in the NFC, take on the Carolina Panthers this Sunday.
