Atlanta, GA - Matt Ryan threw his 100th career touchdown pass, Roddy White had 102 yards receiving and the Atlanta Falcons defeated the Denver Broncos and error-prone quarterback Peyton Manning 27-21 on Monday night.

The Falcons (2-0) took advantage of three interceptions by Manning in the first quarter and raced to a 20-0 lead. Manning brought the Broncos (1-1) back with two fourth-quarter scoring drives, but it wasn't enough to make up for his awful start.

The only other time he's been intercepted three times in the opening quarter was with the Colts in a 2007 game at San Diego.

Ryan was much more efficient, completing 24 of 36 for 219 yards. He hooked up with Tony Gonzalez for a 1-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, then went to White on a 4-yard score in the third period.
