Atlanta's Ryan not interested in MVP discussions

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan doesn't like to discuss his accomplishments for more than a couple of minutes.

That's nothing unusual. Ryan never says too much when asked to consider his chance to become NFL MVP. But his leadership is big reason Atlanta's diverse offense is playing at a high level.

With Julio Jones, Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez so tough to defend in man-to-man coverage, they provide Ryan a multitude of ways to move the ball down the field.

The Falcons can strike quickly or move the ball methodically. Ryan has helped Atlanta take first-quarter leads and mount last-minute comebacks.

Ryan shies from the credit, acknowledging only that being a quarterback "is all about scoring touchdowns and avoiding turnovers."

Atlanta (7-0) hosts the Dallas Cowboys (3-4) on Sunday night.
