    Atlanta- 28
    Detroit- 23

    After giving up an opening drive FG, Atlanta would pace this game with a ball controlling mistake free game plan and created a 28-6 lead. The Falcons would hold on to a late comeback bid as Detroit ran out of time in the end. Matt Ryan played a near perfect game finishing the day 21/27 248yds 4TD, but more importantly didn't turn the ball over. Michael Turner grinded out 50yds on 15 carries and Jahvid Best facing his old team accounted for 35yds on teh ground and 36yds recieving. Roddy White the weeks offensive POTW hauled in all 4 of Ryan's TD tosses finishing with 9 rec 85yds. The defense was lead by Ray Edwards who added 3 more sacks to his NFL leading total. The Falcons played steller defensively as most of theLions offense came in the 4th quarter while in hurry up mode. Atlanta moves to 5-1 for teh year and face division foe Tampa Bay next week.
