QB corner: Matt Ryan discusses the Lions

Ryan was sacked three times and hit six times as he finished with a passer rating of 63.1 in the 23-16 victory.
Garrett Reynolds lost his starting right guard job after the game.
There was a scary moment when it appeared Ryan suffered a gruesome foot or knee injury and Chris Redman took over.

Q: Does Falcons coach Mike Smith have to remind guys what is at stake this week?
A: No, I don’t think so. I think everybody understands where we are at
