Seahawks Vs. Falcons: Matt Hasselbeck Makes It Three Turnovers And The Atlanta Rout Is On

Make it three-for-three in the second half for Matt Hasselbeck. First drive: fumble recovery for touchdown. Second drive: interception leading to a field goal. Third drive: interception leading to an Atlanta touchdown. The Seahawks have gone from just seven down at the half to down after the Falcons scored points off Hasselbeck’s three turnovers.

The Falcons are in complete control now after Matt Ryan found Roddy White in the end zone for a touchdown. It was Ryan’s third touchdown pass of the game. The Falcons have capitalized on the Seahawks’ mistakes, turning three turnovers into 17 points, all in the second half.

The Ryan to White connection capped a four-play, 21 yard scoring drive. Michael Turner got the drive started right, taking the first play 15 yards down to the six yard line. Three plays later, Atlanta was in the end zone again.

The Falcons have scored 17 unanswered points in the third quarter and lead, 34-10.
