ATLANTA — Michael Turner is looking a lot more like he did a year ago. DeAngelo Hall might want to keep his mouth shut the next time he faces his former team.

Turner ran for a season-high 166 yards, breaking away from Hall on a 58-yard touchdown that finished off Washington early in the fourth quarter, and the Atlanta Falcons snapped a two-game losing streak by beating the Redskins 31-17 on Sunday.

Hall yapped all week and was in the middle of a melee on the Falcons bench. The Redskins (2-6) rallied after falling behind 24-3 at halftime, but Turner clinched it for Atlanta (5-3) with his second long TD run; he also had a 30-yarder.
