QB CORNER: Matt Ryan

Here’s the QB corner with Matt Ryan and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s D. Orlando Ledbetter:

Q: Is it good to have a quick turnaround after a loss?

A: Yeah, it's a positive. Everybody had to put that one behind us quickly, which might have been a good thing. We've moved on.

Q: How do the Falcons rebound?

A: The focus has to be on playing the type of football that we're capable of. If we can do that, that's going to be our best recipe for success.

Q: What is the signature of the Tampa defense, which could be without Mason Foster and Gerald McCoy?

A: We are going to prepare as if those guys are going to play. That's the way that we've done it around here, and then (we'll) adjust on Thursday night if something happens differently. For me, their signature is their front four.

Q: What’s different about them from last season?

A: The addition of Michael Johnson during the offseason gives them a dynamic pass rusher. Certainly, we'll be prepared for him and be ready to go.

Q. What was the difference in how the offense performed in the first two games?

A: Week 1, we were efficient on first downs. We put ourselves is good third-down situations, and we converted third downs. Week 2, we weren't efficient on first and second downs. We put ourselves in some tough third-down situations and we didn't convert.
