Matt Ryan May Have Had The Worst 300-yard Game Ever

Falcons_Matt_Ryan_2013Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan did something unprecedented on Sunday. And not in a good way.

Ryan completed 34 of 61 passes for 301 yards in a loss to the Cardinals, an average of 4.9 yards per pass attempt. According to Pro Football Reference, that marked the first time in NFL history that a quarterback passed for more than 300 yards while averaging less than 5.0 yards per attempt.

Throw in the fact that Ryan also threw four interceptions and his team lost 27-13 in a game that wasn’t even as close as that score indicates, and Ryan may very well have had the worst 300-yard game in NFL history.
