Source: Josh Alper, Pro Football Talk
The Atlanta Falcons played without wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White against the Buccaneers last Sunday, but they were still able to snap their three-game losing streak with a 31-23 victory over the Buccaneers.
Quarterback Matt Ryan?s play was a big reason for that victory as he put up a strong performance despite the absence of those receivers. As a result, Ryan has been named the NFC?s offensive player of the week.
Ryan finished the game 20-of-26 for 273 yards and three touchdowns, good for a quarterback rating of 148.4 for the day.
