Ryan still looking for ways to fix Falcons' scoring woes

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Quarterback Matt Ryan doesn't have a cure-all for Atlanta's problems on offense. He does know a good place to start - scoring touchdowns in the red zone and taking deep shots in the passing game.

No help from Matt Ryan, no problem for the Atlanta Falcons

You know that the Atlanta Falcons are legitimate contenders when they can win a game despite Quarterback Matt Ryan. In Ryan’s career, however he went, so went the Atlanta Falcons. Not so this time against the surprisingly strong Washington football team. This is the first time I have seen the Falcons able to shake off two interceptions and a fumble by Matty Ice and still hang tough...

Hours before the NFC South title game on Sunday, a piece of news went public that made Atlanta Falcons fans a little uneasy. No team wants any added distractions when preparing for a game of this caliber, and Falcons owner Arthur Blank provided a large distraction on Sunday Morning.
