Falcons receiver Julio Jones can catch everything in his vicinity, but he can also lower the boom, as we learned during Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
Jones really is a quarterback’s best friend, given his catch radius. Matt Ryan knows he can just throw the ball in Jones’ area, and the All-Pro receiver will find it and haul it in.
He can also bail Ryan out, which is what he did on Sunday. Cowboys safety Jeff Heath appeared to have a surefire interception, but Jones prevented that from happening by delivering a huge blow to break up the pass.
That was an ill-advised throw, but Jones bailed Ryan out.
