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.
