The NFC South is once again the best division in the NFL and the Atlanta Falcon led by Matt Ryan will be the team to watch as the season unfolds.
Drew Brees and Tom Brady will have the focus and the attention of the NFL during the 2020 NFL season. They are currently in a battle for all-time yards and touchdowns and the last man standing will more than likely retire with that record.
However, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan will eventually overtake whoever ends up with that title by the time he himself retires.
While that is one record down the road to look forward to, what we can immediately look forward to is Ryan outplaying both Brees and Brady in 2020 and to lead the Atlanta Falcons back to the playoffs for the first time since 2017.
There are a lot of expectations for both Brees and Brady in 2020. Both are expected to lead their teams to great new heights and win titles. There is zero pressure on the Falcons to play in 2020. Sure, the owner and fan base may be applying pressure but from a national expectations level, there simply are not any.
Matt Ryan has been a Top 5 quarterback in the NFL for the last five years and whether you can admit it to yourself or not, there have not been quarterbacks that have been better. Those that were better, were in a better situation than Matt has been in.
During the first 12 years of his career, Ryan has had to make chicken salad out of chicken crap and has done a masterful job at it. The franchise has played musical chairs with his offensive coordinator, only twice has he had even an average offensive line and let’s not talk about the defense during his tenure, yet despite all that he has been 30 games over .500 as a starter and had more playoff appearances than in the previous 40 years combined.
There will be an MVP QB from the NFC South in 2020 and his name is Matt Ryan and he will lead the Atlanta Falcons to an improbable NFC South division title amid the quarterback greats in the division.
