NFL: Atlanta 24, Tampa Bay 23

Nov. 25, 2012 at 4:36 PM   |   Comments

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Michael Turner scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons edged Tampa Bay 24-23 in an NFC South battle.

Matt Ryan shook off a poor performance in his previous outing to go 26-of-32 through the air for 353 yards, hooking up with Julio Jones on an 80-yard touchdown pass.

Jones overcame a sore ankle to haul down six passes for 147 yards as Atlanta (10-1) strengthened its position atop the division with a four-game advantage.

Tampa Bay (6-5) fell as NFL total yardage leader Doug Martin was held to 50 yards on 21 carries with a pair of TDs.

Josh Freeman picked up 256 aerial yards on 19-of-30 passing in the Buccaneers' loss.
