Matt Ryan NFC Offensive Player of Month
By Pat Yasinskas
It already has been a busy day for awards in the NFC South with Atlanta's Matt Bryant winning the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award and New Orleans' Malcolm Jenkins winning the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award.
Now, it gets even bigger. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November. In that time frame, Ryan led the Falcons to a 4-0 record. Atlanta also has a streak going in which it has set a new franchise record by going four consecutive games without a turnover.
In November, Ryan completed 106 of 153 passes (69.3 percent) for 1,001 yards and seven touchdowns with a 102.3 passer rating. Ryan also led the Falcons on game-winning drives in the final minute of play in games against Baltimore and Green Bay.
