Falcons receiver Julio Jones already appears to be nearing midseason form, judging by how he performed early in the team’s game against the Eagles on Thursday night.
Jones caught a 10-yard pass on the team’s first play from scrimmage, which he hauled in with ease.
On the play that followed, Jones received a handoff on an end-around, where he was met by Eagles safety Rodney McLeod. Jones wasn’t fazed at all, though, as he stiff-armed McLeod — sending him to the ground.
That’s one way to pick up a first down. Jones really is so difficult to bring down once he gets his legs churning.
