Falcons rally to beat Newton's Panthers 31-17
Turner runs for 139 yards, Falcons take advantage of Newton mistake to beat Panthers 31-17
By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) ' Michael Turner ran for 139 yards and two touchdowns, Matt Ryan scored the tie-breaking TD with 7 minutes remaining, and Corey Peters came up with a huge interception, helping the Atlanta Falcons seal a 31-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Cam Newton, who grew up just a few miles south of the Georgia Dome, wowed the crowd most of the day. He threw for 237 yards and ran for a 14-yard touchdown that put the Panthers (1-5) ahead 17-14 heading to the final quarter.

Atlanta (3-3) responded with Matt Bryant's tying field goal and Ryan's 1-yard sneak. Then Newton made his biggest mistake of the day, throwing a screen pass that was picked off by Peters, a 305-pound defensive tackle. The Falcons drove for Turner's clinching touchdown with 1:56 left.
