Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan says he took a close look at the Philadelphia Eagles offensive scheme in the offseason.
Last season, Philadelphia had the league's top rated passer in quarterback Nick Foles and the league leader in rushing in running back LeSean McCoy. The Eagles were second in the NFL in total offense and scored 27.6 points per game.
"Nick Foles had such a good year last year," Ryan said to ESPN.com. "But taking a look at some of [Philadelphia's] scheme and how some of their stuff is used, they were really, really good on offense last year."
Atlanta averaged 22.1 points but had the league's worst rushing offense last season, averaging only 77.9 yards a game.
