All you need to know about the Falcons wThere was something in the air in Atlantaon Sunday. It was a football, which very often left Matt Ryan's hands and landed in those of Julio Jones.Ryan set a Falcons recordwith 503 pa sing yardsin a 48-33 win over the Panthers. This was Ryan's fourth career game with at least 400pa sing yards, and he now has four of the sixhighest single-game totals in Falcons history with a little Chris Chandler and Steve Bartkowski mixed in.Ryan became just the 19th player in NFL history to throw for 500 Austin Howard Jersey yards in a game. It actually happened twice last season, when Drew Brees shredding the Giants forseven touchdownsand when Philip Rivers also hitexactly 503 against the Packers in a lo s. These games have have steadily increased in frequency, now with 10such games over the last eights seasons after just nineoccurences in the league's prior history.Ryan's 503 Keith McGill Jersey yards game him the third-most pa sing yards ever for a QB through Week 4, with 1,473. That sits behind a couple guys with multiple league MVPs Tom Brady in 2011 and Kurt Warner in 2000. Brady finished with Reggie Nelson Jersey 5,235 yards that season, third-most in league history, while Warner was limited to just 3,429 after mi sing five games with an injury.Exactly 300 of Ryans yards on Sunday came thanks to Jones, who also set a Falcons single-game record. Jones was the 6th player ever to reach 300 receiving yardsand just the fourth since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger. The only other time it's happened in the last 25 years is when Calvin Johnson torched the Cowboys for 329 yards on 14 receptions back in 2013.While it wasn't the most total yardage, Jones' 30 yards per catch on Sundayis the highest YPCfor any player with at least 10 receptions in a game since the merger.Jones had 170 yards before the two-minute warning of the first half. This marked the ninth 150-yardreceiving game of his career, all of them coming since the beginning of 2013. That's the most of any player since 2013, followed by Jon Condo Jersey A.J. Green with sevenand T.Y. Hilton with six.
