Michael Turner closed out an eight-play, 73-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown run to give the Atlanta Falcons a 14-0 lead over the Carolina Panthers in Week 14 action. The Falcons jumped on the board early on after a Jonathan Stewart fumble gave them great field position. After a Panther three-and-out the Falcons found little resistance as they drove down the field to push the margin to 14 points.
Matt Ryan is perfect so far, going 3-for-3 for 59 yards and one touchdown. Turner has six carries for 36 yards and one score and Harry Douglas returned to the spotlight with a 46-yard catch on third down to keep the scoring drive alive.
At the time of the score, the Falcons led the Panthers in total yards, 102 to eight. This is exactly the type of dominant performance you’d like to see when a 10-2 team plays a 1-11 team.
