    The Falcons came into this game needing a win to stay close in the NFC Wild Card hunt, and they came up huge against the 1-loss Titans.

    In the first half, it was all about both teams' running backs, as they traded scores twice. Johnson ran one in from 6 yards out, then Turner answered back with a 2-yard TD run of his own. CJ, then had another TD run in the second quarter from 4-yards out. Turner, not to be outdone, ran for his 2nd TD shortly after that, this time from 10 yards out, making the score 14-14 with 1:11 left in the half. Hasselbeck then drove the Titans down the field quickly and threw a TD pass to Hall from 3 out making the score Titans 21, Falcons 14 at the half.

    The Falcons came out of the locker room needing to answer, and Matt Ryan and Michael Turner led them down the field yet again, where Ryan found Julio Jones in the endzone from 6 yards out to tie the game at 21. It took Hasselbeck two plays to find the endzone for the Titans, a 59-yarder to Louis Murphy, followed by a 31 yard TD pass to Cook Jr. But that was it for the Titans as they would not score again. Atlanta scored on another Turner TD run from 1 yard out to tie it up, Weatherspoon picked off a Hasselbeck pass and took it in for the score from 51 yards out, and Turner finished off the Titans with another TD run from 2 yards out, giving us the final of 42-28.
