ATLANTA, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Matt Ryan threw three touchdown passes Sunday, piloting the Atlanta Falcons to a 31-3 rout of the Buffalo Bills.

Ryan's scoring throws were for 42 and 5 yards to Roddy White and 12 yards to Marty Booker.

Atlanta (8-7) also scored on an 11-yard fumble return by Lawrence Sidbury and a 51-yard Matt Bryant field goal.

Ryan finished with 18 completions in 35 throws for 250 yards.

If the Falcons beat Tampa Bay next week, they'll have back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in the history of the Atlanta franchise.

Rian Lindell got Buffalo's points with a 42-yard field goal.

Brian Brohm, in his first NFL start, was 17-of-29 passing for 146 yards and two interceptions for the Bills (5-10).
