Turner The Burner

5. Turner the Burner

Falcons running back Michael Turner barreled for 117 yards and four touchdowns in a gigantic win for the Falcons over Carolina. But there was one play that stood out above the rest — the play that changed the game — when Atlanta coach Mike Smith went for it on a 4th-and-goal at the one midway through the fourth quarter with Atlanta leading 24-21.

Turner told me Monday, "When Coach went for it on that play, it gave us so much confidence. To get your number called, for the line to open up holes like that, it goes a long way."

The Atlanta offensive line has stunned me with its consistent and physical play this year.

Look for Turner to manhandle his old club when the Falcons visit the Chargers Sunday.
