Where Matt Ryan threw each of his 534 passes for the Atlanta Falcons

To look at Matt Ryan's record season with the Atlanta Falcons from a data perspective, the AJC Data team mapped out each time he dropped back to pass during the season – where on the field he was standing when he threw the ball, and where it was caught or fell incomplete. In addition to his 534 official pass attempts, we also mapped the 37 times he was sacked, his nine throws that yielded a pass interference penalty against opposing defenses, and his four passes on 2-point PAT attempts.
