FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was selected by the league to replace New England’s Tom Brady in the 2015 Pro Bowl on Monday.
Ryan, who was an alternate, earned his third career Pro Bowl selection after completing 415 of 628 pass attempts (66.1 percent) for 4,694 yards with 28 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, and a 93.9 passer rating in 2014.
The game is set 6 p.m. Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
He ranked second in the NFL in attempts and completions, fifth in yards, and seventh in completion percentage as the Falcons finished 6-10.
Ryan played in the Pro Bowl after the 2010 and 2012 seasons and joins Michael Vick as the only quarterbacks in franchise history to be named to the Pro Bowl three times.
