4) People are still pointing the finger at Matt Ryan

Up until Matt Ryan’s final throw of the game, he had played a great game. Ryan completed 66 percent of his passes, threw for a touchdown and ran his streak to a league leading 37 consecutive games with at least one touchdown pass on the road.
However, Ryan threw an interception with under two minutes left in regulation that sealed the Falcons’ fate in their loss to Tampa Bay. Sure, Ryan is having an uncharacteristic year as far as turnovers go, but this loss was not his fault whatsoever. You can blame the next two slides for the Falcons’ loss.
