How good has Matt Ryan been through the first three seasons of his career? How about historically good.
The Falcons quarterback has already won 32 games, and is one win shy of matching Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino for the most wins by a quarterback in his first three seasons since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.
Ryan, who can help the Falcons clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs with a win over the Panthers at home, has already posted a rating of 100.0 or better 15 times. The Falcons are 15-0 in those games. Ryan is also 19-2 at home, and is anxious to atone for that second loss, which came last Monday against the Saints.
