Friendship off field fuels Falcons' Ryan, Lions' Stafford

DETROIT (AP) Matt Ryan could search the world and struggle to find many people who can relate to him and his life.

Matthew Stafford is an exception and is someone Ryan described as a "great friend," this week.

"We go through a lot of the same things, same issues," Ryan said. "It's a unique position, a unique fraternity for quarterbacks throughout the league. When you run into guys in the offseason, you get the opportunity to pick their brains about a lot of different stuff. We certainly talk about some of those things."
