On Sunday the Falcons will be taking on the mighty Kansas City Chiefs whose last victory was October 21, 2007.
Oh, but it gets better!
It was announced yesterday that the Chiefs will be starting 2nd-year quarterback Tyler Thigpen. Everybody join me in saying, "Who?" That's right! THE Tyler Thigpen from football powerhouse Coastal Carolina! "Which Carolina?" you ask. Easy! The one with the coast!
This start is notable because Matt Ryan will officially have his first NFL start in which he is the more accomplished passer. Here's the breakdown on career stats:
Ryan 22-46 for 319 yards, 1 td, 2 ints for a rousing 60.0 passer rating.
Thigpen 16-39 for 192 yards, 1 td, 2 ints for a robust 44.0 passer rating.
That's right folks, it's going to be a shoot out of epic proportions! Set your TIVO now!
