In his 125th career game, Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones made NFL history becoming the fastest player ever to reach 12,000 receiving yards.

Here’s the play during which Jones set the new record:

The former No. 6 overall pick certainly has lived up to his hype. Jones has put together a career that will one day lead to his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

So far during Sunday’s game, Jones has eight catches for 135 yards, giving him 90 catches for 1,285 yards and six touchdowns on the season. Some of them have been spectacular.
