Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan surpassed 30,000 yards passing for his career, becoming the fifth fastest player to hit that mark.

Only Dan Marino, Kurt Warner, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers reached 30,000 yards sooner than Ryan, who entered Sunday's game with 29,917 before a two-yard pass to Julio Jones against the Titans got the job done.
