"When we started as a team in April, we got together before that as players down in Miami, it was time to move on. It was time to look forward," Ryan said.

Ryan was a dominant force in 2016, throwing for 4,944 and 38 touchdowns. In the NFC title game, he stymied the Packers with four passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown and 392 passing yards.

But can the Falcons be the first team since the Bills in 1993 to return to the Super Bowl after losing the previous one? Ryan thinks so.

“Our focus is what is front of us. We learned a lot from last year. We’ll take those learning lessons with us, but we have to find a way to make this group the best group that we can be.”
