To keep that one going, the Falcons want the effort that has won them two games at the Georgia Dome by a combined score of 72-35. In those contests, RB Michael Turner had 324 of his league-leading 366 yards and all of his five touchdowns; meanwhile, backup Jerious Norwood rushed for all but 18 of his 186 yards.
