Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has gone over 100 yards rushing against the Cincinnati Bengals, marking the 18th time he has done so in his career. It is also the 15th time he has done so as a member of the Falcons having topped the century mark three times when he was with the San Diego Chargers.
Turner is having a terrific fantasy day as well as the rest of the Falcons’ offense. He’s averaging 7.3 yards per carry and needs just 39 more yards to set a 2010 high for yards in a game. He had 140 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 5.
This is the third game of the season, Turner has gained over 100 yards rushing but he’s never done it in back-to-back games. The Falcons head into a bye week next week but it will be interesting if this game will finally open the floodgates for the 2008 Turner to return to form.
