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.
