Broncos’ Lock, Falcons’ Ryan Try To Continue Season Revivals


Drew Lock and Matt Ryan are trying to lead season revivals for the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, respectively. The quarterbacks also are shaping their places in their teams’ long-term plans entering Sunday’s game.

Lock, in his second year, is trying to prove he’s the right choice to make the Broncos a playoff contender. The 35-year-old Ryan, in his 13th season as Atlanta’s starter, wants to disprove the theory that it’s time for the Falcons to rebuild, starting at the top.

Lock threw three fourth-quarter touchdown passes to lead Denver to a 31-30 comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers last week.
