Matt Ryan is off to a scorching start.

He set a new single-game franchise record Sunday afternoon in the 48-33 win over the Carolina Panthers, piling up 503 yards through the air.

Ryan topped his previous record of 443 yards, set against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1 of the 2014 season.

The performance also ties him for 17th in NFL history with Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers.

On the season, Ryan has 1,473 yards, 11 touchdowns and two interceptions.
