For the first time in 2015, I can finally put all the blame on Matt Ryan for the Falcons’ demoralizing 24-21 loss. The play that everyone looks to is his pick six on pass the threw from his own 1-yard line. That is utterly and unequivocally unacceptable.

After the interception, Ryan had two straight three-and-out drives in which he threw several terrible passes. The inability to answer after the Colts’ tied the game up is what I remember the most. Interceptions happen, but to come out and look defeated afterwords is what sinks in for me. Something has got to change going forward or this season is over.
