ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Ryan matched a career high with three touchdown passes, third-string running back Jason Snelling rushed for 129 yards and scored three times, and the Atlanta Falcons romped to a 41-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Snelling took over after the top two backs, Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood, went out with injuries. The replacement carried 24 times for 129 yards, including a pair of touchdowns. He also hauled in a 19-yard touchdown pass from Ryan.

Ryan threw for 225 yards and finally got the offense in gear for Atlanta (1-1). The first-teamers looked sluggish in the preseason, and the Falcons were held without a touchdown in a season-opening loss at Pittsburgh.

The only highlight for Arizona (1-1) was Tim Hightower's 80-yard touchdown run, matching the third longest in franchise history.
