    Michael Turner’s 13-yard touchdown run with 2:46 left in regulation proved to be the winning score as the Atlanta Falcons rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Washington Redskins, 24-17, on Oct. 7 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

    Game Notables

    The matchup between the Redskins and Falcons was the 21st regular season meeting between the two teams, and the 22nd overall meeting all-time. The Redskins lead the series, 14-7-1.

    The Redskins are 10-3 all-time in home games against the Falcons, including a postseason victory following the 1991 season.

    Fans attending the Oct. 7 game against the Falcons were welcomed by Tanya Snyder, wife of team owner Daniel Snyder. Tanya Snyder and hundreds of Zeta Tau Alpha members distributed THINKPINK! ribbons and breast cancer awareness educational materials.

    Snyder and ZTA started the campaign for breast cancer awareness in 1999. At the time, the Redskins were the only team in the league to participate.

    Nose tackle Barry Cofield appeared in his 100th game Sunday as a Redskin. Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan continued his streak of not missing a defensive snap for the Redskins in his career. Kerrigan returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter against the Falcons.

    Rookie QB Robert Griffin III left the game in the second half with a lacerated lip and a concussion. Kirk Cousins, also a rookie, completed 5 of 9 passes for 111 yards in relief, including a 77-yard TD pass to Santana Moss in the fourth quarter. Cousins was also intercepted twice in the loss.

    Griffin’s status is questionable for the Oct. 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
