San Diego Chargers
Atlanta at San Diego Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET, at Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego - TV: FOX; DirecTV: 714 *TV announcers: Chris Myers, Tim Ryan, Jaime Maggio *Keys to the game: The Falcons' shuffled secondary gets yet another stiff test with the Chargers' potentially explosive offense. We say potentially, because it's still difficult to predict how aggressive San Diego will choose to be with undrafted rookie left tackle Mike Harris protecting of QB Philip Rivers' blind side. Rivers has managed to move the ball very efficiently despite being without RB Ryan Mathews and being down TE Antonio Gates last week. Atlanta has the weapons to spread the field and for QB Matt Ryan to do serious damage vertically. The key, however, will be getting early production out of RB Michael Turner. Balance can take some of the aggression out of the Chargers' pass rush, although the Chargers came up empty in the sack department last week. If Ryan has time, he'll engage in an enterta...
BEST OF MAXIM
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan suffered a wardrobe malfunction — after sliding into a Denver Broncos defensive player — and had to remove his pants to re-adjust his knee brace on the Atlanta sideline. Lucky for Ryan, his teammates were quick to form a human curtain around their signal caller to prevent 71,228 pairs of prying eyes inside the Georgia Dome from seeing more...
Atlanta's 27-21 victory over the Denver Broncos Monday night signifies a changing of the guard in the NFC South behind QB Matt Ryan, who leads the NFL in Real QB Rating. The Falcons displayed the power of versatility, while embarrassing Peyton Manning.
Matt Ryan did his best not to rile up Peyton Manning.
No need to give No. 18 any bulletin-board material.
''I think he was drafted when I was in ...,'' Ryan said, catching himself. ''I don't want to make him sound TOO old.''
For the record, Ryan was in seventh grade when Manning was the top overall pick in 1998. Now, two elite quarterbacks from...
TIME AND A PLACE
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller did a "bucking bronco" sack dance after taking down Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan during Monday night's NFL game at the Georgia Dome. However, the timing of the dance was a bit questionable, as the Broncos were down by 13 points in the fourth quarter. No question that it was a great play by Miller, but he should have...
Peyton Manning kept throwing up wobbly passes. The Atlanta Falcons kept picking them off.
Taking advantage of a stunning three interceptions in the first quarter, Matt Ryan and the Falcons built a big lead and held on for a 27-21 victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night, an erratic effort by Manning that showed his comeback in the Mile High City is still a work in progress...
Matt Ryan and Peyton Manning will get into a classic QB duel tonight which will be great for fantasy football owners.
Week two of the NFL season was filled with plenty of surprises, upsets, big plays and dominant fantasy football performances. So what can we expect in the final game of the week tonight when the Atlanta Falcons play host to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos...
Monday Night Football!! I am loving this game between Atlanta and Denver. Two excellent QBs with excellent weapons. One trying to regain the title of best in the game after missing a year with injury and swapping teams. While the other is just trying to get into any conversation over the best in the game. He has the wins and stats, but no postseason success. But take heart Matty...
Last week: 5 (+0)
I wasn’t that impressed with the Falcons on Monday Night. I felt like they should have been up 20 given how badly the Broncos started and how much they turned the ball over, but they didn’t capitalize like they should have. They lost the yardage total battle and the yards per play battle and if it wasn’t for those 4 turnovers, they probably would...
The Falcons extended their record to 2-0 with a 27-21 win over the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. It marks the fifth straight season where the Falcons won their home opener under Mike Smith.
Matt Ryan had another strong performance, completing 24 of 36 passes for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also added 19 yards on 6 carries on the ground. Michael Turner led rushers...
Last week: 10-6
Bears @ Packers
Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) @ Buffalo Bills (0-1) 1 p.m.
Both of these teams have high expectations for their season, especially the Bills after they rebuilt their defensive line. Last week they looked bad against the Jets on offense, defense and special teams. The good news is that they have no where to...
The Falcons had something to prove on Monday night when the whole world was watching. They wanted to show everyone that they are a legit team and have put last year’s playoff woes behind them.
Coming off and impressive win against Kansas City last Sunday, the Falcons were able to do the same thing on Monday night when they defeated the Denver Broncos 27-21 in front of 70,427 fans...
In just the second game of the season, the Atlanta Falcons will be on the big stage as they host Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Earlier we looked at some keys for a Falcons victory. Now let's take a lap around the interweb and see who everyone is saying will win this battle....
Christopher Owens will need to be more than charming tonight
