(SL) — Julio Jones racked up 12 catches for 253 yards and two touchdowns as the Falcons blasted the Buccaneers 34-20 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Wide Receiver set a records with his standout performance.
Jones became the first player to record three games of more than 250 yards in a career, surpassed Hall of Famer Lance Alworth for the most receiving yards and Anquan Boldin for most receptions for a player through his first 90 NFL games.
Post game, quarterback Matt Ryan said, “If we could just dial up 250 yards from him every week, it would be a pretty good recipe for success. He’s so explosive. He’s an unbelievable talent and an unbelievable competitor.”Ryan himself finished 26-of-35 for 317 yards and a TD, while wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had a 51-yard touchdown pass to which Coach Quinn jokingly said he became confident with Sanu at QB after he completed the pass, especially after he wobbled the snap a little.
