I've been critical of the Falcons all season for lucky wins, their easy schedule and playing down to their opponents. But the Falcons deserve a ton of credit for how they've finished out the season. A 34-0 whitewash of the New York Giants last week, followed by this convincing road victory, marks Atlanta's best stretch of the season.
Ryan's play is especially promising. At times, he can make it look too easy because he always gets the Falcons into advantageous looks. He showed off a pinpoint deep ball Saturday, and had a sense of the moment.
It sounds strange to say for a 13-2 team, but it feels like this group is just hitting its stride.
