Falcons' Matt Ryan wins AP MVP Award

Falcons' Matt Ryan wins AP MVP Award

The fact they've won four Super Bowls is obviously a great thing, but he's never been able to go out there and complete a game where the outcome was never in question. Even K Mark Moseley played on a team with the #1 defense and #12 offense (although it was a strike-shortened year and should be thrown out). Ryan didn't make the cut, but ranked No. 10 on the 2014 list after signing his latest Falcons' deal. Their defense also made huge improvements from the year before, finishing 6th in total defense.

Vic Beasley: What else is there to say about Beasley? They met at Boston College when Marshall played starting point guard for the women's team. Quarterback Matt Ryan runs the show and wide receiver Julio Jones is his favorite target, but Atlanta has many other threats.

Ryan has had to overcome expectations his entire career, which sounds insane for a #3 overall pick who was widely anticipated to be a franchise quarterback.

Despite the phenomenal individual and team regular-season success, Ryan will have to buck recent history to bring a championship to Atlanta. Ryan was great, but Johnson was the best.

"He has, I feel, been slighted for some time", Matt Ryan's high school coach, Brian McCloskey, said during The MMQB's visit to Penn Charter after the NFC Championship Game.

He's also the only quarterback in the 2016 season to throw at least one touchdown pass in every game.

But the fourth quarter historically hasn't been among his best, with 2014's incredible showing against the Seahawks being the one time he took completely over and dominated, completeing 13-of-15 (87%) and throwing two touchdowns.

In the quarter before it went public, Facebook recorded total revenue of $1.06 billion and revenue per user of $1.21. In the last few months, Spiegel and co. have also broadened their vision beyond the flagship social network.

Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa, who played just 12 games because of a preseason hamstring injury, won Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The numbers match up with how good of a year he's had. I am extremely proud of Matt as a person and leader and, in my view, he was the unquestioned MVP of the league this season.

"As a quarterback, when you're surrounded by really good players and guys who can make plays at any time, it makes your job a lot easier", Ryan said.

Defensive Player of the year: Landon Collins. "Michael has been incredibly supportive of me as I've gotten to know him, as I've gotten older". He had a breakout season and racked up turnovers all year long for the New York Giants.

Whatever the reason may be, Ryan has had an insane year. He finished with 100 tackles, 4 sacks, and 5 interceptions (nfl.com).

Atlanta's defense is so young, with four rookie starters and three starters in just their second year. He also ran for 105 yards and two scores on just 17 rushing attempts, numbers that any running back would be happy to post on the biggest National Football League stage of them all. This guy lit it up whenever he had the ball in his hands. I've kind of been getting better as the years have gone on.

For the first time since the 2013 season the victor of the defensive player of the year wasn't JJ Watt.
