Michael Turner RB ATL Aug 08 '78
Michael Turner rushed 24 times for 58 yards in the Falcons' Week 8 win over the Eagles.
Turner caught one pass for six yards and was stuffed on a fistful of carries inside the five-yard line. In other words, it's another typical day for the artist formerly known as "The Burner." Turner is averaging just 59.2 rushing yards per game on the season and has 10 catches. There's no upside here heading into next week's home game against the Cowboys. The only reason Turner got so many carries in this one was because the Falcons took the air out of the ball after grabbing a 24-7 halftime lead.
