The Falcons offense wasn't exactly firing on all cylinders against the Saints in Week 13. Matt Ryan completed 18 of 33 passes for just 165 yards and a touchdown, with the ground game stepping up when it was needed.
Atlanta finished just 1 of 11 on third down, proving the struggles Ryan dealt with throughout Thursday night.
Fantasy Impact: After starting off 2012 on a torrid pace, Ryan has eased up a bit in the scoring department. He's only finished with multiple scoring passes in one of his past five games.
His team continues to find ways to win, but that doesn't help your fantasy team. Expect him to be a starter like always against the Panthers next week, and hope he'll step up in your playoffs.
