[VIDEO] Falcons Vs. Buccaneers: Michael Turner's 5-Yard TD Run Gave Falcons 7-0 Lead in 1st Quarter

Michael Turner Runs For 5-Yard First Quarter TD

With the news that Jason Snelling would be out for this game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Falcons knew they would need a big day from Michael Turner. He’s obliged so far and capped off the scoring with a five-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, giving the Falcons a 7-0 lead.

The run, and overall drive, was the epitome of what the Falcons want to do most of the time. Line up and put a body on the defenders and see what Turner can do. With White being held in check by the Bucs secondary, the run game, and Tony Gonzalez, will be big factors if the Falcons want to win their sixth straight and stay a game ahead of the New Orleans Saints.

Watch the highlight of his touchdown run and relive what a healthy Michael Turner means to the Falcons.
