Matt Ryan had a dominating performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars as the Atlanta Falcons pounded the Jags 41-14. Ryan completed 19 of his 26 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns for a season-high 137.3 quarterback rating. The 9-5 Falcons strengthened their hold on an NFC wild card, and clinching another above .500 season. It seems however a better than .500 season is no longer good enough for the Falcons.

Coach Mike Smith was quoted as saying, "Our expectations are much higher than winning seasons," and that "I'm glad we've been able to accomplish that as an organization and a football team. But believe me, it's not one of those expectations we really want to talk about. If we're where we think we are as an organization and a football team, that's expected each and every year."

It seems the Falcons are going Super Bowl or bust, and if they continue to play like they did last night, a Super Bowl may well be in their future.
