Falcons | Matt Ryan under a lot more pressure
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 20:10:54 -0800
Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith praised the poise of QB Matt Ryan in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills. He was sacked a season-high six times, and Ryan was hit nine times, but he was still able to make big plays when it counted. He finished with 311 passing yards and one touchdown. "I thought Matt did a nice job," Smith said Monday, Dec. 2. "He was under some pressure. There were a couple of no-hitters. When I say no-hitters, there were basically unblocked guys that came. We had an identification on one. We had a mental error on another." Ryan has been sacked a career-high 30 times this season. His previous high was 28 in 16 games last season.
