Matt Ryan trying to forget his awful five-pick day


Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan can only pretend to have a plan on how to deal with this week.

Having never thrown more than three interceptions in a game, bouncing back from last week’s five is something he has no background with.

You can’t worry about it,” Ryan said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Part of playing this position in this league is knowing that there will be times when you make mistakes and fall flat on your face. You just have to get up and keep playing and keep throwing.”

You also can hear him talk about that game (or maybe he doesn’t want to) at 5 p.m. ET on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network.

Of course, it’s not like he’s going to stop throwing, not against a Buccaneers pass defense that’s last in the league in yards allowed.

“We’ve got to move on,” offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said. “We know that Matt is going to bounce back from that. He just has to forget about it and move on to the next one.”

It speaks to the job Ryan has done all year that a 40.5 passer rating day dropped his season rating to 94.8.
