2) Matt Ryan

Matt Ryan comes in a number two on this list for the sure fact that hes Matty Ice. Ryan narrowly missed his career-high for yards with 4,694 and added 28 touchdowns, four off of his career best.

In his last three seasons, Ryan has the second best completion percentage against the blitz at 67.2 percent. He trails only Ben Roethlisberger and is ahead of Drew Brees.

Ryan also led the NFL with the most accurate deep ball with his 56.5 percentage of passes being on target. He finished his 2014 season in the top five in yards, passer rating and overall rating.

Ryan was able to achieve these great numbers despite the fact that the Falcons have had one of the leagues worst rated offensive lines in the last two seasons. Ryan would rank number on on many teams, but not this team just because the guy we are about to talk about is a player like none other.
