Julio Jones. Need I say more? Jones set a career-high in receptions with 13 and eclipsed the 100-yard mark in receiving yards for the second consecutive game with 135. Jones now has 22 receptions on the year for 276 yards and two touchdowns.

Jones made two outstanding plays in the game that stood out over all of the rest. The fist came on a bad through from Ryan to start the Falcons’ drive from their own end zone in which Jones bailed out Ryan with a one-handed, two-handed, I don’t even know how to describe reception to give the Falcons a big first down.

The second came on a 37-yard reception that gave the Falcons the ball on the 1-yard line that would lead to a Devonta Freeman go-ahead touchdown with just seconds remaining in the game. Jones has been absolutely spectacular in the first two games of the year and is on pace to lead the the NFL in receiving yards for 2015.
