Falcons WR Julio Jones passes even more huge milestones

Share

Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons runs after a catch during the first half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on November 26, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Falcons (7-4) are one game behind New Orleans in the NFC South but hold a wild-card spot.

The Buccaneers (4-7) rebounded from a 27-6 deficit behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and drove deep into Atlanta territory after forcing a fumble at the other end of the field. Tevin Coleman sealed the game with his second rushing touchdown with under two minutes remaining. Jones made Bucs cornerback Ryan Smith look absolutely silly, juking him right out of his shoes before his incredible play to stretch in for the score.

No other player in National Football League history has more than one game with 250 yards receiving. He had a 3-yard scoring run in the third quarter, staking the Falcons to a seemingly comfortable lead in the first of three straight home games for the defending NFC champions.

Ryan was 26 of 35 for 317 yards, while Sanu remained ideal in his career when throwing the ball.

Moreover, the Falcons lost two starters in the secondary to injuries - top corner Desmond Trufant (concussion) and nickel Brian Poole (back) - relegating safety Ricardo Allen to play inside and outside corner in addition to safety.

So, as expected Bucs Nation is pretty devastated about the team's brutal road-game loss.

If nothing else, Jones will provide Atlanta a scary threat as long as he is healthy over the next few years.
