Falcons Vs. Chargers: Matt Ryan Appreciates Play Of Offensive Line

The Atlanta Falcons have gotten off to a great start in 2012, led by quarterback Matt Ryan. Ryan has completed 72% of his throws through the first three games, and has eight touchdown passes against just one interception. After Sunday's win over the Chargers, Ryan spoke about the support he's gotten from his offensive line and how that's helped him play well:

"Our offensive line has done a great job. We've dropped back and thrown the ball quite a bit and I really haven't been hit too much. When you have those things going on around you, it helps you play fast, make good decisions and feel confident and a quarterback."

While the Falcons rank just 15th in passing yards per game, they're third in points scored per game. They face the Carolina Panthers in Week 4.
