Even with Tony Gonzalez back in the lineup, Matt Ryan had a hard time finding the end zone on Saturday night against the Titans. He completed 11-of-19 passes for 138 yards, but he failed to score a touchdown in a little over two quarters of play.
The Falcons started the game with three drives that went deep into Titans territory. All three stalled, though. Atlanta put six points on the board in this span.
Fantasy impact: Head coach Mike Smith has said his team doesn't create game plans for preseason opponents, so the struggles in the red zone shouldn't keep any owners up at night. Ryan missed on a few passes he normally makes, and his offensive line starting collapsing on him later in the first half.
Ryan was sacked five times in 40 snaps. Pass protection will be the most important factor to his success. He has great weapons around him on offense. Can he stay upright, though?
