 Tough-luck Matty Ice finally had things break his way in 2016 after a series of disappointing finishes for his Atlanta Falcons to begin his career. The Boston College product hit career highs in touchdowns, passing yards, and completion percentage en route to his first-ever NFL MVP and Super Bowl appearance. It goes without saying that Super Bowl LI ended in further heartbreak for Ryan and the Falcons, but Atlanta’s ridiculously scary offense should give him a half-decent chance at a return appearance.
