Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White has caught nine of his 10 targets today, with 83 yards early in the fourth quarter against the St. Louis Rams. QB Matt Ryan could finish with one of his best yardage days of the year — he has 214 so far, plus a pair of touchdowns. He’s now scored a touchdown in every game since week two.
But the focal point of Atlanta’s attack today has been RB Michael Turner. With 23 carries for 81 yards and very few losses, Turner has been the heartbeat of three different scoring drives of ten plays or more. The bad news for Falcons fans: each of those ended in a field goal.
Rams QB Sam Bradford has played well too, going for 195 yards and two touchdowns so far. He also ran 17 yards for a crucial first down late in the fourth, but a critical shovel pass interception to William Moore may have ended the Rams comeback chances.
