PRO BOWLERS Atlanta Falcons

QB Matt Ryan was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his career (2010, 2012, 2014). He has thrown for 4,336 yards and 32 touchdowns while completing 68.6 percent of his passes this season.

The ninth-year signal caller leads the NFL with a 114.8 passer rating through 14 games. Ryan also leads the NFL with 61 passes of 20+ yards, connecting for touchdowns on 14 of those plays.

Ryan has thrown 32 touchdowns against just seven interceptions this season. His +25 touchdown to interception differential is tied with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers for the best mark in the NFL this season.

In the midst of his best statistical season, Ryan has orchestrated the NFL's top scoring offense as Atlanta averages 33.5 points per game. With two games remaining, the Falcons have set a new franchise record for scoring with 469 points besting the 1998 team's mark of 442 points.

Ryan is averaging an NFL-best 9.3 yards per attempt. Which is the best average of his career and leads the next passer (Tom Brady - 8.2) by more than one full yard.

WR Julio Jones earned his fourth career Pro Bowl selection. He leads the NFL with 1,253 yards on 72 receptions. Jones has caught five touchdowns and is averaging 17.4 yards per reception.

The sixth-year wide out from Alabama is averaging 104.4 yards per game, more than any other receiver in the NFL this season.

Jones set a franchise record with 300 yards on 12 receptions against Carolina in Week 4. He is the the sixth player in NFL history to post 300 yards in a single game and just the fourth in the Super Bowl era.

Jones is the only player in the Super Bowl era to post two games with 250+ yards in his career.

Jones has recorded the fourth 1000-yard season of his career and his third straight. He now has three consecutive 1,200 yards seasons to his name.

The 2016 season marks a long overdue first Pro Bowl selection for K Matt Bryant. In his eighth year with the Falcons, Bryant broke the club's all-time scoring record of 806 points held by K Morten Andersen. Bryant now has 869 points in a Falcons uniform.

One of the all-time leaders in field goal percentage at 85.7 percent, Bryant leads the NFL in points this season with 135 through 14 games. He is on pace to break his own franchise record of 143 points set in 2012.

The 15-year veteran has converted 29-of-31 field goals (93.5 percent) and is a perfect 25-of-25 from inside 50 yards.

Bryant converted a 59-yard field goal against Kansas City in Week 13, his longest field goal as a Falcon and the longest kick he has made since booting a 62 yarder with Tampa Bay in 2006.

RB Devonta Freeman earned his second consecutive Pro Bowl berth in 2016. Freeman has run for 930 yards on 202 carries with 10 touchdowns.

The third-year running back from Florida State prides himself on being an all-around back. To that effect, Freeman has amassed 1,276 scrimmage yards with 12 total touchdowns on 243 touches.

Freeman has posted two games with 100 yards rushing and six games with more that 100 scrimmage yards this season. His 207 total yards against the Saints in Week 3 are tied for the fifth most by a running back this season.

Freeman has logged 27 runs of 10-or-more yards this season and 57 first down runs.

Freeman became the ninth Falcon with two seasons of 10-or-more touchdowns in Week 15. He also is the only player in the NFL over the last two years who has three games with three rushing touchdowns.

C Alex Mack earned his fourth trip to the Pro Bowl after anchoring an offensive line that has produced the highest scoring offense in the NFL this season.

Atlanta leads the NFL in scoring, averaging 33.5 points per game and tallying a franchise record 469 points through 14 games.

Mack steadied an offensive line that has allowed the Falcons to average a franchise best 412.9 yards per game this season.

The veteran center has helped QB Matt Ryan throw for more than 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns for the second time in his career.

Vic Beasley Jr. capped his breakout year with the first Pro Bowl nod of his career.

Beasley is the NFL sack leader with 14.5 through 14 games. He is first Falcon to post 14+ sacks since John Abraham (16.5) in 2008.

Beasley has posted four multi-sack games this season, including two games with at least three sacks - 3.5 at Denver | 3.0 at Los Angeles.

In Week 13 at Los Angeles, Beasley became the 10th player in NFL history - and first Falcon - to record three-or-more sacks and return a fumble for a touchdown in the same game since sacks became an official statistic in 1982.

The second-year linebacker out of Clemson's six forced fumbles ties John Abraham's franchise record and leads the NFL through 14 games.
