Falcons, Ravens by the numbers

ATLANTA – Courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information, here are a few numbers of interest as the Falcons get ready to play the Ravens tonight.

  • Matt Ryan has won 13 straight home games and is 17-1 in his career at the Georgia Dome. His only career home loss came against an AFC team -- Week 11 of the 2008 season against the Broncos. Ryan’s 13 straight home wins are second only to Tom Brady, who has 24. Baltimore’s Joe Flacco is third on the list with seven straight home wins.

  • Atlanta running back Michael Turner had two touchdowns in Sunday’s victory against Tampa Bay. That gave Turner eight games as a Falcon where he’s had multiple rushing touchdowns. That’s one shy of Gerald Riggs’ franchise record.

  • Ryan and Roddy White have been a prolific big-play duo, connecting on 16 throws at least 15 yards downfield. The Ravens won’t make things easy for Ryan and White, though. Only six receivers have had multiple catches on throws 15 yards-or-more downfield against the Ravens this season.
