NFL: Atlanta 30, Seattle 28

Oct. 2, 2011 at 8:16 PM

SEATTLE, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Michael Turner scored two rushing touchdowns Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons held off a late Seattle charge to post a 30-28 win over the Seahawks.

Turner racked up 70 yards.

Matt Ryan went 28-for-42 passing for 291 yards with a touchdown for the Falcons (2-2).

Matt Bryant went 3-for-3 on field goal tries for the victors.

Atlanta, however, had to sweat out the game's final drive as Seattle drove for the go-ahead score.

Tarvaris Jackson (25-of-38, 319 yards) moved the Seahawks from their own 15-yard line to the Atlanta 45 with 22 seconds left but Sidney Rice was whistled for a false start, setting them back to midfield.

Two plays later, Steven Hauschka tried a 61-yard field goal that would have won the game, but it fell short.
