Ryan throws 4 TDs, Falcons rally past Eagles 35-31

ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Ryan threw a career-high four touchdown passes and the Atlanta Falcons rallied to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 35-31 after Michael Vick was knocked out with an injury late in the third quarter Sunday night.

Ryan hit Tony Gonzalez with a pair of TDs, the tight end going past Terrell Owens for fifth on the NFL's career receiving list. Then, Ryan hooked up with Ovie Mughelli on a 1-yarder that brought Atlanta to 31-28 with just over 6 minutes remaining.

The Falcons (1-1) completed the comeback with Michael Turner breaking off a 61-yard run, then powering over from the 3 with 3:24 remaining.

Vick left with a neck injury after getting spun by a Falcons rusher into a Philadelphia blocker. He staggered off the field and Mike Kafka came in for the first NFL game.

"Then, Ryan hooked up with Ovie Mughelli..."

Wow, these football players do that?? I've been out of touch for a while, apparently.
