Bucs-Falcons Score Update: 14-7 Michael Turner and Arrelious Benn Exchange Touchdowns

The Atlanta Falcons are off to a hot start as “The Burner” has scored his second touchdown for the team going up 14-0 against the best the NFC has to offer.

Turner received a terrific block from Ovie Mughelli on the back side to open up the lane for the run. If it weren’t for the field being 100 yards I’m sure the Falcons would have loved to of run for more yards.

But with that great offensive display comes the negative, the Falcons defense. Something seems amiss with them, they just don’t seem to be able to contain Josh Freeman and his passing ability. For all the talk about an improved Falcons secondary it doesn’t seem to be the case.

Arrelious Benn caught a nicely thrown Josh Freeman throw to keep Tampa Bay in the game. The secondary is not flying, they are letting Morris and his team throw all over them.
