ATLANTA, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Matt Ryan racked up 316 passing yards and Michael Turner rushed for 100 more Sunday in the Atlanta Falcons' 23-17 victory over Tennessee.

Ryan hooked up with Tony Gonzalez (five catches, 74 yards) on a touchdown pass while Roddy White amassed 147 receiving yards for the Falcons (6-4), who rebounded from last week's 26-23 overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Turner contributed a 4-yard TD run among his 21 carries for Atlanta.

First-round draft pick Jake Locker took over for an injured Matt Hasselbeck late in the third quarter and responded with a pair of scoring strikes for the Titans (5-5).

Hasselbeck left the game after sustaining a sprained right elbow.
