QB Ryan, Falcons' offense have started fast

(TSX / STATS) -- FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons' first-team offense has scored touchdown on both of their exhibition season possessions.

In the two series, quarterback Matt Ryan has gone 7 of 9 for 88 yards and one touchdown, and a 123.9 passer rating. He's been without wide receiver Julio Jones for both games and running back Devonta Freeman for the last game.

Ryan has clearly adjusted well to new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. The issue moving forward will be the health of his two major weapons. Jones is recovering from offseason foot surgery and Freeman is in the league's concussion protocol.
