Ryan missed on less than a quarter of his passes, completing 30-46 for 363 yards and a touchdown in a 24-20 victory over the New York Giants. The Falcons executed the second fourth quarter, two-score comeback over the Giants in as many weeks. He hit Julio Jones for a 37-yard pass to set up the game-winning touchdown by Devonta Freeman.

Andre Williams, New York Giants

Williams saw sparing action against the Falcons in the Giants' victory, but he still made an impact. Despite only rushing six times for 43 yards, AW44 tallied 35 on one carry. That wasn't enough, as the Giant defense gave up 14 points in the aforementioned fourth quarter loss.

Anthony Castonzo, Indianapolis Colts

Even though Andrew Luck wasn't sacked, the Indy offense struggled on Monday night against the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets. New York intercepted Luck three times, and The Franchise fumbled one. Castonzo stood partially responsible on the offensive line. New York improved to 2-0 while Indianapolis fell to 0-2 with the 20-7 final.
