Matt Ryan on facing Eagles: ‘They’re a different football team’

QB Corner with Matt Ryan 

Here are three questions with Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on the Eagles: 

On the Eagles’ defensive front: “Obviously a very good front, front four. The defensive line rotation, their stout inside they’ve got good edge rushers. They have Michael Bennett, who we’ve seen a lot in Seattle, I know he’s a talented player. It’ll be a good test for us up front.”

On the last game against the Eagles: “There are definitely some things we take from that game last year. We’re a different football team, they’re a different football team. That’s one of the things as a veteran, I’ve come to realize that teams are different year in and year out. ... There’s certainly things that we can draw on from the last time we played them.”

On offensive line matchup with the Eagles stout front: “Our offensive line is up to the challenge every week. They do such a good job of helping the run game and pass protection. Our staff does such a good job of organizing our game plan to feature our strengths. Our guys up front will do a great job.”
