FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Michael Turner says the Atlanta Falcons' rushing attack might not be as bad off as some people think.

Coming off their first loss of the season, Turner and the Falcons were punchless in short yardage situations last week at New Orleans.

The two-time Pro Bowl running back was held to his least productive day in five seasons with Atlanta, running 13 times for 15 yards.

But Turner says that the Falcons have done far more right offensively this season than they've done wrong.

Atlanta ranks fourth in passing and seventh in scoring, but just 26th in rushing. Turner insists that the Falcons only need to make a few corrections to fix breakdowns in the running game.

The Falcons (8-1) host Arizona (4-5) on Sunday.
