Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner is having himself a fine afternoon in the Georgia Dome. He has already scored twice and has given the Falcons a 24-14 lead in the third quarter.
Michael Turner Touchdown Number One
When Falcons wide receiver, Roddy White left the game with a knee injury, Michael Jenkins used that opportunity to make a huge play for the Falcons, a 43-yard catch that would setup a second Turner touchdown run of the day. Jenkins has been very productive since his return from an injured shoulder in the preseason.
Turner would then cash in on his second touchdown run of the day with this 10-yard burst through the Buccaneers’ horrible rush defense.
We’ll have more video highlights to come as soon as NFL.com can share them. Defensive Tackle Jonathan Babineaux’s interception and tight end Michael Palmer’s touchdown catch are among the highlights still to come.
