Bucs-Falcons Score Update: 7-0 Michael Turner Pounds In the Touchdown

Faced with a 4 and 2 situation Mike Smith knew exactly what to do, he was going for it. With that conversion the Falcons were on their way to open up proceedings with a touchdown to Michael Turner who ran off the right side on second-and goal.

On the drive Matt Ryan went four-for-five hitting a clutch pass to Tony Gonzalez for 15 Yards. Jason Snelling received a few completions, one off a screen play.

Defensively they must be able to shut down the versatile passing game that the Bucs have to offer, in recent years Tampa Bay has blown up the Falcons secondary so they must be able to contain and pressure Freeman.

Playing against the best team in the NFC the Falcons have to play their best game, here are the offensive stats thus far.

Matt Ryan:
4-5 33 Yards

Michael Turner:
8 Rushes for 28 Yards and 1 Touchdown

Jason Snelling:
2 Receptions for 11 yards

Roddy White:
1 Reception for 7 yards

Tony Gonzalez:
