It didn't look like Matt Ryan was going to get his passing touchdowns record, either, but late in the fourth quarter he prevailed on a seven yard touchdown pass to Harry Douglas. That leaves Ryan with 32 touchdowns for the year, a spot atop the single season list for the Falcons and perhaps the finest season in franchise history.
I don't love the fact that the starters had to stay in until the fourth quarter to make this milestone happen, but it's undeniably a wonderful thing for the team's franchise quarterback and the team in general. Over the course of a truly remarkable season, we've seen records fall and great things happen. This is certainly near the top of the list.
