NEW ORLEANS -- Not sure exactly what’s been up with Atlanta running back Michael Turner this season. But he’s suddenly back to looking a lot like he did last year and that’s very good news for the Falcons.

There’s one stat that every Atlanta fan knows: Since Turner joined the Falcons last year, Atlanta is undefeated in games in which he has rushed for 100 yards. They won eight games last year and the only one he’s rushed for 100 yards this season.

So far (and I’m writing this with 7:33 left in the first half), Turner already has 85 yards on nine carries.
