Saints coach Sean Payton on Falcons QB Matt Ryan, "No. 1, he's extremely competitive. He's always played some of his best football, it seems, in the fourth quarter. And then he's accurate. He's got enough escapability that he can extend the play, find the receiver down the field. When you start putting together all the things you're looking for from a skillset, the leadership; he's durable as well. He's doing a great job of playing the position and obviously playing it effectively late in the game. What's most important is winning, and he's doing a good job with that."
