 FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan hopes he never has to endure another five-interception game.
It sounds simple, but Ryan breaks down last week's narrow victory over Arizona as a learning experience that could have ended much worse.
Despite his career-high five picks, Ryan still helped the Falcons (9-1) squeak past the Cardinals to maintain a three-game lead over second-place Tampa Bay in the NFC South.
Atlanta visits the Buccaneers (5-4) on Sunday. Tampa Bay has won four straight and five of its last six games, a streak that Ryan credits to the Bucs' ability to stuff the run and make an offense one-dimensional.
Tampa Bay leads the NFL in rushing defense. Atlanta, which ranks 28th, has averaged a paltry 2.6 yards per carry over the last two weeks.
