One of the reasons the Falcons have been competitive as of late is quarterback Matt Ryan’s ever-growing comfort in head coach Arthur Smith’s offense. During the team’s 0-2 start to the season, the passing game struggled to do much of anything. Since then, Ryan has thrown for 1,204 yards, 10 touchdowns, one interception and a passer rating of 106.9, as Atlanta has won three of its last four games.

The Atlanta Falcons find themselves in an unusual place — .500. For the first time since Week 2 of the 2019 season, the Falcons have won as many games as they've lost. A last-second, 30-28 victory over the Miami Dolphins was Atlanta's second straight win and pushed the team's record to 3-3.
