Matt Ryan is notching many records

Matt Ryan is on a hot streak, demonstrated by Atlanta's quarterback leading a 57-yard, game-winning drive in Miami to lift the Falcons to .500 on the season.

Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP has been exceptional in his past four games. Since Week 3, Ryan has thrown for 301.0 yards per game with a 10:1 TD-to-INT ratio and 107.0 passer rating while leading the Falcons to a 3-1 record.

Ryan came into the 2021 season with a new head coach, new offensive coordinator and no Julio Jones for the first time in a decade. But after initial problems, the new recruits have gelled and the Falcons are flying again.

Ryan became the seventh quarterback in NFL history to throw for 5,000 completion's in Sunday's game against the Jets. He joined Tom Brady (6,897) and Ben Roethlisberger (5,159) as the only active players to eclipse the 5,000 mark.

Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is the NFL's leader in completed passes with 7,142 completions. The other three quarterbacks on the list are Brett Favre (6,300), and Peyton Manning (6,125), and Philip Rivers (5,277).
