Ryan is 1-man show in Atlanta's struggling offense

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Matt Ryan must feel like he's going it alone.

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback is coming off one of his worst games as a pro, throwing four interceptions at Arizona.

But it's hard to pin the blame on Matty Ice, who's essentially become a one-man show for the offense. His top two receivers are injured. The guys up front buckle at the slightest hint of pressure. The running game is the worst in the league.

The Falcons (2-5) have lost four of their last five games and essentially face a must-win situation Sunday when they meet NFC South rival Carolina (4-3).

Ryan refuses to blame those around him, saying he's got to play much better than he did against the Cardinals. His rating of 47.2 was the fourth-lowest of his career.
