Matt Ryan is player of the week

There’s more good news for Matt Ryan, who was named to his second Pro Bowl on Wednesday night.

The NFL announced Thursday morning that Ryan has been named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week.

That shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Ryan had one of his best games of the season in Saturday night’s victory against Detroit. Ryan completed 25 of 32 passes for 279 yards and four touchdowns without an interception.

Ryan opened the game by completing his first 12 passes. He also completed his final 10 passes the previous week against the New York Giants. The 22 straight completions were only two short of the NFL record set by Donovan McNabb.
