Cardinals vs. Falcons: Turner unfazed by poor performance against Saints

Wesley Hitt

Despite a tough performance against the Saints, Michael Turner wont change his approach moving forward.

Despite rushing for only 15 yards on 13 attempts against the New Orleans Saints in the Atlanta Falcons' first loss of the season last weekend, Falcons running back Michael Turner will "keep grinding" away moving foward.

Turner, who was stuffed in a key goal-line stand with less than two minutes remaining in Sunday's game against the Saints, has 529 yards and four touchdowns on the season.

"Sometimes defenses are going to have good schemes against us and be able to get good penetration and things like that," Turner told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "It's just something we have to handle and run different types of plays sometimes and just clean it up."

On a team that has moved somewhat away from the running game to become more of a passing team behind quarterback Matt Ryan, Turner has also become comfortable with his new role on the team, as the running back told the AJC.

"We're a different team this year, obviously with philosophies and things like that, but I mean we're 8-1," Turner told the paper. "That's the bottom line; to get Ws."
