NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Atlanta Falcons by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

ATLANTA FALCONS (3)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 5) - Strange win.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 8) - Matt Ryan keeps winning games, but five-picks games make him MVP.

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 5) - Somehow they were able to overcome a five-interception performance from Matt Ryan.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 2) - Too soon to call it a slump. But a week after losing a battle against Drew Brees, Matt Ryan throws a career-high five INTs as Atlanta narrowly holds off Arizona. If he doesn't get back on track quickly, then there's a problem. A big problem.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 2) - The Falcons lead the NFL with 10 individual 100-yard receiving games this season - five by Roddy White, three by Julio Jones and two by Tony Gonzalez.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 2) - Another unimpressive victory, but you know what I like about this team? Even when it plays poorly it still wins.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 2) - On an afternoon he'd like to forget, Matty Ice remained a cool engineer.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 3) - Another shaky performance, but this one was by the Falcon offense and five interceptions by Matt Ryan. Holding down the No. 2 spot is going to be difficult if it happens again.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 2) - Five INTS for Matt Ryan vs. the Cardinals was very un "Matty Ice" like. Bottom line, another W for the Falcons.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 5) - Mulligan No. 2 goes to the Falcons for winning despite some grotesque stretches during 23-19 victory over Arizona.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 6) - The offense may be off the tracks, and up next are games against the red-hot Bucs and red-hot Saints.
