Matt Ryan was just recognized as the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year, a well-deserved honor after he piloted the best offense in the NFL to his best-ever season.

Ryan threw for nearly 5,000 yards, a career high 38 touchdown passes, and threw just seven interceptions at the helm of the Falcons’ historic offense. He spread the ball around, stayed cool under pressure, and has this team in the Super Bowl, so I will not accept any arguments against this award. None.

We’ll soon know if he also took home the MVP award. Cross your fingers.
