Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan broke a pair of his own franchise records in the 34-0 victory over the Giants on Sunday.
He topped his club record for passing yards in a single season. After just 14 games he has 4,202 yards for the season. Ryan threw for 4,177 yards in 2011.
Ryan also broke his club record for completions in a season, as he has connected on 369 passes this season. He set the franchise record with 357 completions in 2010.
Ryan is the only quarterback in team history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in consecutive seasons.
Ryan finished the game completing 23 of 28 passes (82.1 percent) for 270 yards with three touchdowns and a 142.6 passer rating. His 82.1 completion percentage is the second highest of his career, trailing his 24 of 28 (85.7) performance against Green Bay on Nov. 28, 2010.
The win over the Giants marked the 32nd time in his career that Ryan has posted a passer rating of 100-or-higher. The Falcons are 31-1 in those games, including a 20-0 record at the Georgia Dome.
Ryan’s 142.6 quarterback rating against New York was the second-highest single game rating of his career. He posted a 146.3 passer rating in the 2011 season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Ryan owns a 33-4 record at the Georgia Dome, including wins in each of his last 11 starts at home. His .892 winning percentage is the second best in the NFL over the last five seasons, trailing only New England QB Tom Brady (.935).
With 33 wins in his first 37 starts at the Georgia Dome, Ryan has the best home winning percentage of any quarterback in the Super Bowl era.
