Buffalo Bills hold Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan in check

This stat helped determined the game.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

What a victory! The Buffalo Bills went down to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and beat the previously unbeaten Atlanta Falcons on their own field. The one stat that shows how they did that is Matt Ryan’s 61.8 QB rating.

Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier once again had their defense humming at full speed. The pass rush got to Ryan and the secondary capitalized multiple times resulting in one of Matt Ryan’s worst games ever. That 61.8 is Ryan’s lowest QB rating in nearly two years. On October 11th, 2015 Ryan had a 55.1 QB rating against the Washington Redskins. His worst performance during his MVP season last year was a 78.7 outing against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Bills held him to his 15th-worst outing of his 10-year, 14-game career on Sunday. The Bills defense once again is the strongest part of the team and one of the best in the NFL.
