A pair of Atlanta Falcons picked up awards from the NFL on Wednesday.

Quarterback Matt Ryan has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

Ryan led the Falcons (9-2) to a 4-0 record in the month, including wins over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-4), the Baltimore Ravens (8-3) and the Green Bay Packers (7-4), while throwing for over 1,000 yards, seven touchdowns, zero interceptions and a completion rate of 69.3 en route to a 102.3 passer rating for the month.

Matt Bryant, who kicked the game-winning 47-yard field goal in the Falcons’ 20-17 win over the Packers on Nov. 27, was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second time this season.

The kick was the 12th game winner of Bryant’s career and his third in a Falcons uniform. Bryant also added a 38-yard field goal on Atlanta’s opening drive of the game as well as a pair of extra points to finish the day with eight points.

Atlanta visits Tampa Bay at 4:15 p.m. Sunday.
