Matt Ryan got off to a terrific start in the Atlanta Falcons’ first four games completing 68 percent of his passes en route to 1,202 yards and six touchdowns. Since then, Ryan has completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,197 yards and five touchdowns.

The completion percentage is down, the touchdowns are down and the yards are up, but what has been the issue is the amount he is turning the ball over. In the Falcons’ last four games, Ryan has thrown five interceptions in comparison to just two in his first four games.

Ryan has also fumbled the ball several times as well.

While Ryan has shown signs of greatness in 2015, he has also shown a lack of awareness. For that, his grade has dropped to an 85 through the Falcons’ fist eight games.
