Michael Turner Cruises Past Eagles Defenders, Puts Falcons In 35-31 Lead

Neither the Philadelphia Eagles nor the Atlanta Falcons want to give ground in this game. Down by three in the fourth quarter, the Falcons are looking to take advantage of an Eagles team that is without Michael Vick. Running back Michael Turner is doing his best to help the Falcons out.

Turner's first rushing touchdown of the game has put the Falcons back in the league, 35-31. His biggest play of the game came on a 61-yard run from his own 13-yard line. This set up a series of plays that resulted in a three-yard touchdown run by Turner.

The Falcons have been in the red zone five times this game and have put the ball in the end zone for a touchdown each time. This game is far from over, though.
