On the season, Ryan leads the NFL with 15 touchdown passes and 202 completions. He's also thrown for 2,170 yards. But on Sunday, his streak of 154 consecutive starts will come to an end. It was the second-longest active streak among quarterbacks behind Philip Rivers at 215 and the fifth-best mark among quarterbacks all-time.
In Ryan's absence last week, Schaub was 6-for-6 for 65 yards and a touchdown in garbage time.
Etling was drafted in the seventh round in 2018 by the Pats, but didn't work out as a quarterback prospect and then didn't make it in an attempted switch to playing receiver. He was ultimately waived on Aug. 13 and claimed the next day by the Falcons.
