ATLANTA - Sometimes, one game can change everything or it can change nothing. For Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Sunday's dramatic 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks has forever put an end to The Question. The what's-it-like-to-have-never-won-a-playoff-game question. Now, people can move on to more weighty questions, like, "Hey, Matt, what's it like to have never won a Super Bowl?" And maybe that one is headed for the trash bin soon as well. For Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, only time will tell whether Sunday's loss, in which his unit gave up 417 yards and 24 first downs and allowed Ryan to complete two late passes that set up Matt Bryant's game-winning 49-yard field goal, had any impact on his chances of becoming the Eagles' next head coach.

ATLANTA FALCONS quarterback Matt Ryan sprained his left shoulder in the closing minutes of the NFC Championship Game and won't be able to play in Sunday's Pro Bowl. Coach Mike Smith said Ryan will need 3 to 4 weeks to recover from the injury, which was described as a sprained AC joint to the non-throwing shoulder. No surgery is required. Ryan was hurt just after the 2-minute warning. On a 5-yard pass that Jason Snelling took down to the San Francisco 10, linebacker Ahmad Brooks got a shot on the Atlanta quarterback.

THE FALCONS like to pass first and ask questions afterward, but they are not some high-flying, chuck-and-duck team. Atlanta is throwing the ball about three times more per game this season, compared with last season. Three times. The difference is that Matt Ryan is throwing it more efficiently, and that, along with a favorable schedule, is why the Falcons are off to a 6-0 start. Atlanta was 3-3 at this juncture last season and 4-2 in each of Ryan's first three seasons as a starter.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 16 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons at Saints. Julio Jones (hip) should be back, but even if he's not, Ryan will take full advantage of New Orleans' generous secondary with the other weapons at his disposal. He tore up the Saints in Week 1, as has virtually every other offense that faces this defense. Even Jay Cutler managed to toss two TDs against this bunch. Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers vs. Browns.

ATLANTA - He seemed to be the perfect quarterback for the city, a Southern kid in a Southern town, an African-American in a metropolis where more than 60 percent of the population shared his skin color, but, most of all, an unconventional quarterback with breathtaking athleticism for an organization that was in dire need of something fresh. Now, only 2 years later, he is gone, replaced by a new prodigy, and a new brand of excitement, one noticeably lacking in the foibles that came as part of the Michael Vick package.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A slip of the tongue gave away Atlanta coach Mike Smith's focus. Smith was just starting his review Monday of the Falcons' 30-28 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs when it became clear his thoughts were on this week's NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. "We knew the San Francisco Forty ... excuse me, the Seattle Seahawks, were a very good football team and they showed a lot of resiliency," Smith said before smiling after catching his verbal miscue.

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons needed more than one "Matty Ice" to turn back the greatest comeback in NFL playoff history by Seattle. After the top-seeded Falcons squandered a 20-point lead over Seattle in the fourth quarter Sunday, Penn Charter graduate Matt Ryan completed two long passes to get in range before Matt Bryant kicked a 49-yard field goal with eight seconds remaining to give Atlanta a 30-28 win over Russell Wilson and the gutsy Seahawks...

WHILE HE stirred no memories of his famous cousin, Mike McGlinchey last Friday lifted the number of high school pass-throwers in the maternal portion of his family to six. Considering his height (6-9) and weight (275), he also likely became the biggest kid in city history to whip one downfield. McGlinchey, a senior at Penn Charter who's bound for Notre Dame, did not text or call Matt Ryan, the PC/Boston College product now creating a NFL-wide buzz for the Atlanta Falcons, about his chance to rack up passing yardage.

When Mike Ryan heard the news in July, he called his son immediately. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. had just named Matt Ryan, Boston College's starting quarterback, as the second-best signal caller in the country, making this summer afternoon feel "a bit like it was Christmas morning" to the proud father. His son's reaction? "Well, looks like we've got a little work to do. " It was an appropriate response from the lightly recruited, three-sport captain at Penn Charter, who has turned himself into the Atlantic Coast Conference preseason player of the year and one of the area's best chances at a homegrown Heisman Trophy winner since Abington High School's Eddie George took home the prize at Ohio State in 1995 and Overbrook High's Ron Dayne won in 1999 while at Wisconsin.

ATLANTA - Time wasn't the problem for Matt Ryan on Sunday. He had plenty of that. After shredding the San Francisco 49ers for 24 points in a brilliant first half, Ryan had 30 minutes to finish the job and punch his ticket to the Super Bowl. After his two terrible turnovers helped the Niners get back into the game, Ryan had the ball and a chance to reclaim the momentum. Even after San Francisco scored to take a 28-24 lead, Ryan had 8 minutes, 23 seconds to burnish his legacy with a game-winning drive.

After a stellar freshman season, Temple quarterback P.J. Walker took a step back in 2014, a campaign that was marred by an ankle injury. That's why the hiring of quarterbacks coach Glenn Thomas is among the most significant offseason developments for a team looking to improve on its 6-6 record. Thomas, 37, comes with strong credentials and high expectations. For the last seven years he was an assistant with the Atlanta Falcons, including the last three as quarterbacks coach. If Walker can revert to his freshman performance, Temple could continue its improvement in coach Matt Rhule's third season.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 8 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Falcons. With just one 300-yard outing (in Week 1) and only nine passing scores in his first seven games, Stafford has been a huge disappointment. It doesn't help that Calvin Johnson has been gimpy or absent for much of that time. But Stafford will be facing a very generous Falcons pass defense when they square off in London. Whether or not Megatron suits up, Stafford should prosper.

BALTIMORE - As far as first six seasons of an NFL career go, the list of quarterbacks with more regular-season wins than Matt Ryan is short. Exceptionally short. It reads: Flacco, Joe. The only two current NFL starting quarterbacks from the Philadelphia area will forever be tied as the only players at their position drafted in the first round of the 2008 draft. Both experienced early success, Flacco, from Audubon, N.J., earning Super Bowl MVP honors two seasons ago and Ryan, the pride of Exton, claiming rookie of the year and making four postseason appearances in his first five seasons.

BALTIMORE - The only two NFL starting quarterbacks from the Philadelphia area met at midfield 90 minutes before the Baltimore Ravens' 29-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Audubon's Joe Flacco, the Ravens' Super Bowl-winning quarterback, faced Exton native Matt Ryan, a Pro Bowl passer with the Falcons, for just the second time in their NFL careers. Ryan, a Penn Charter alum, asked a bout Flacco's family. Flacco, who went to Audubon High School, asked Ryan how many people he knew coming down I-95 for the game.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The New York Giants will enter Lincoln Financial Field reenergized for their game Sunday night against the Eagles. This is a far different team than the one that was written off after a disastrous first two weeks. With the Giants trailing by 10 points past the midway point of the third quarter, rookies Andre Williams and Odell Beckham Jr. sparked them to a 30-20 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The Giants have won three in a row after losing their first two games to Detroit and Arizona by a combined 32 points.

Tom Brady, Patriots: Had just 25 touchdown passes last year, his lowest total since 2006. He responded in 2007 by throwing 50. Brady should get back into the 30s, especially if tight end Rob Gronkowski is healthy. Drew Brees, Saints: His left tackle is Terron Armstead, a third-round pick last year out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Armstead was beaten for three sacks by Greg Hardy in Week 16 last year, but has had a good summer. His continued improvement is key for Brees, whose receiving weapons are among the best in football.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Chip Kelly has talked to at least one offensive star this week who isn't DeSean Jackson, Kelly said yesterday. The Eagles coach said he spoke 2 days earlier with quarterback Nick Foles. Remember him? Twenty-seven touchdown passes, two interceptions? Back before free-agent safety mania, back before the Jackson trade intrigue surfaced, Foles' status and potential were topic No. 1 in Birdland. At some point, Foles will again dominate the spotlight, as he returns for his third NFL season, his first as the acknowledged starter, with his photo now hanging in the NovaCare corridor lined by Eagles Pro Bowlers.

IN MOST LEAGUES, there are enough wide receivers on the waiver wire to fill out lineups running low because of poor play or to cover those that are on bye. But the problems Julio Jones owners face can not be covered with a simple drop/add. When Mama Pajama rolled out of bed Tuesday, she found Julio down by the trainer's room. The news has been grim, and the panic high, ever since. Jones is out for the rest of the season with a broken right foot. "You know, when it rains, it pours," Falcons owner Arthur Blank told USA Today . "In this case, we're having a monsoon right now in Atlanta.
