Ryan had 2,363 yards passing, 19 passing touchdowns, 3 picks and a 115.00 QB rating on the road last year. He should carve up a questionable Bears D in Week 1.Big Ben only had a 167 yards and no touchdown passes at Cleveland last year, which was on par with his 78.4 road QB rating. I would only rate him as a mid-tier QB2.
