Ryan completed 9 of 13 passes for 155 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He was 5 for 5 for 71 yards, including the 7-yard touchdown pass to Jones, on the opening drive for Atlanta (No. 13 in the AP Pro32).

Joe Flacco completed 9 of 12 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown for Baltimore (No. 5). The Falcons led 14-0 before Flacco threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson midway through the second quarter.

Each starting quarterback left the game in the second quarter.

Falcons News & Notes:

Rookie fullback Bradie Ewing left the Falcons’ preseason game against the Ravens with a right knee injury, and linebacker Akeem Dent left with a head injury.

Ewing, a fifth-round pick from Wisconsin, was helped off the field before being placed on a cart and driven to the locker room.

Dent, who started at middle linebacker, walked off the field after he was hurt when blocking for a Falcons punt & did not return to the game.
