Matt Ryan is the biggest player to watch against the Eagles. Ryan has an assortment of weapons to throw to and an improved offensive line from years past. With time to throw, Ryan should be able to pick apart the Eagles’ defense with ease and lead the Falcons to victory.

Ryan will have the likes of Julio Jones, Leonard Hankerson, Justin Hardy, Jacob Tamme and Roddy White if he is able to play. Ryan is a top-10 NFL quarterback and for good reason. He holds several Falcons’ record as well as some league statistics as well.

Number 2 will be in the spotlight come Monday night and will hopefully put on a throwing clinic.
