Matt Ryan to call Falcons-Saints matchup in Week 18

A familiar face will be in attendance when the Atlanta Falcons face the New Orleans Saints in Week 18. Former Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is set to call Sunday’s NFC South showdown for CBS.

Ryan will be joined in the broadcast booth by Andrew Catalon, Tiki Barber and A.J. Ross, according to the CBS Sports Twitter account.

Ryan previously called Atlanta’s Week 6 game against the Washington Commanders. The Falcons lost 24-16 and Ryan got to see the team’s dysfunction up close from the broadcast booth.

Ryan was traded away during the 2022 offseason after the Falcons’ failed pursuit of Deshaun Watson. If Atlanta loses in Week 18, there’s a good chance it could be Arthur Smith’s last game as head coach.

Smith has gone 21-29 over the last three seasons. The Falcons were expected to take the next step this year, but poor quarterback play ultimately doomed them.

Sunday’s game kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET at the Caesers Superdome in New Orleans.
