Even with Falcons' success, Ryan knows he must play better

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Matt Ryan puts the blame squarely on himself for Atlanta's offensive struggles the past three weeks.
    
The Falcons quarterback knows it's all part of the territory.
    
While Atlanta (6-1) has already matched its win total for last season, the offense hardly looked sharp in wins over Washington and Tennessee and the only loss at New Orleans.
    
Ryan threw four interceptions in those games, giving him six for the season. He's on pace for his lowest quarterback rating since 2009.
    
Assessing his performance Wednesday, Ryan said, "There's been some good, there's been some ugly. I've got to clean up the ugly."
    
The Falcons haven't lost faith in Ryan, saying they expect him to turn things around. He'll get his next chance Sunday in a division game against Tampa Bay (2-4).
