Michael Turner ran 13 yards for the go-ahead score with 2:46 to play, and the Atlanta Falcons knocked Robert Griffin III out of the game Sunday in a 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins.

The Falcons are 5-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Matt Ryan completed 34 of 52 passes for 345 yards as Atlanta handed Washington its eighth consecutive home loss.

Griffin left the game in the third quarter after being hit in the head on a sack by linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and suffering what Redskins coach Mike Shanahan described as a “mild concussion.”

Kirk Cousins took over and threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to give the Redskins a fourth-quarter lead, but the fourth-round pick also threw two interceptions in the final two minutes.

The Redskins fell to 2-3.
