VALDOSTA-FAN Posted October 27, 2008 Share Posted October 27, 2008 Matt Ryan has QB rating of 82, Russell has a rating of 76. Both QBs have breached the 200 yard passing mark twice this season. Ryan has had the easier schedule thus far with wins over Detroit and Kansas City, while Russell and the Raiders have close losses to the San Diego and Buffalo.Ryan got ruffed up a little against a more veteran defense and made a few mistakes, but a few nice plays. However, in the end the team lost by nearly TDs. Oakland is not a great defense, but an aggressive defense and it will be interesting to see how that defense matches up with Ryan and the Falcons' offense.For both QBs, its a big game. The Falcons have hopes of making the playoffs, but winning on the road and in the NFC South are the team's biggest obstacles. For the Raiders in the up for grabs AFC West, Russell has struggled some, but the team is still in a position to compete for their division.This is not a elimination game, but a definite MUST-WIN game in order to keep their teams relevant in the playoff race.
