Julio Jones stuns as Falcons win over the Bucs

Mohamed Sanu shows off arm on long TD pass remains perfect in NFL passing career

Julio Jones went off big time in yesterday's 34-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, making 12 catches for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

Starting off with a win against Tampa was huge as the Falcons cannot only secure a playoff spot if they can continue their three-game winning streak, but they have a shot to catch New Orleans and Carolina - both teams are now just one game ahead of them in the division. The Buccaneers (4-7) rebounded from a 27-6 deficit behind backup Ryan Fitzpatrick and drove deep into Atlanta territory after forcing a fumble at the other end of the field. In a two-play sequence on the previous series, Jones was working his magic on the opposite sideline to move the sticks, one play before a wide receiver reverse to extend the scoring drive. In addition, he became the first player ever to have three games with at least 250 receiving yards in his career.

Suddenly, things are looking up for the reigning NFC champions.

"Man, if we could just dial up 250 from him every week, that would be pretty good recipe for success", said Ryan, who was 26 of 35 for 317 yards.

Tampa Bay: The Bucs sustained some huge blows during the game, losing RB Doug Martin (concussion), S T.J. Ward (concussion), S Josh Robinson (hamstring) and DT Clinton McDonald (back).

Trufant was evaluated for a head injury and Poole suffered a lower back injury.

Tampa Bay: The Bucs play their third straight road game at Green Bay next Sunday.

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