Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Roddy White had a spectacular day for Atlanta, catching 11 passes for 201 yards and leading the Falcons to a wild 39-32 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The Falcons (5-2) squandered a 24-3 halftime lead, falling behind when Cincinnati (2-4) took advantage of two turnovers and ripped off 22 straight points in the third quarter.

White put the Falcons ahead to stay with his second touchdown, an 11-yard reception early in the fourth. He then made a leaping catch on the 2-point conversion to make it 32-25.

After Cedric Benson's fumble, Michael Turner scored on a 3-yard run for a two-touchdown lead. Chad Ochocinco gave the Bengals a chance with a late 8-yard TD catch, but the Falcons recovered the onside kick.
