SAN FRANCISCO – Roddy White had a 90-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown and a 31-yard TD reception, Michael Turner ran for three scores and the Atlanta Falcons flattened the 49ers 45-10 on Sunday to end San Francisco's five-game home winning streak dating to last season.

White finished with eight catches for a career-high 210 yards. Six of those receptions came in the first half for 185 yards, as Atlanta (3-1) came out of its bye week sharp in all phases and finished the day with a 477-279 advantage in total yards. Matt Ryan completed 22 of 32 passes for 329 yards and two TDs and also ran for a late score.

San Francisco (3-2) flopped in its biggest test yet, falling to its worst defeat since a 41-0 loss at Kansas City on Oct. 1, 2006, under former coach Mike Nolan.
