Falcons Vs. Chiefs: Matt Ryan Talks About Opening Week

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is preparing to play in the team's opening game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. He talked how they are preparing for the Chiefs under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter:

We've got guys that have been in our system and have adapted to (Offensive Coordinator) Dirk's (Koetter) new stuff really well. For us, the focus has to be on being rock solid with our game plan and having a really good understanding of what we're doing and what we want to do.

Ryan is coming off a season where he threw for 4,177 yards with 29 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while completing 61.3 percent of his passes. Ryan and the rest of the Falcons play Sunday against the Chiefs with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on Fox.
