There isn’t a whole heck of a lot of defense being played early in Atlanta. A little more than a quarter had passed when Julio Jones tied up the ball game at seven apiece with a way-too-easy touchdown near the goal line.
With Jeremy Lane lined up opposite him, Jones abused the corner as he tried to jamb him at the line, darted inside and caught the perfectly-timed throw from Matt Ryan. From there, Jones went beast mode to run through Richard Sherman and Steven Terrell into the end zone for the score.
Quick slant to @julioJones_11…
And he's IN!

It was just a tremendous display of strength, agility, quickness and power at the end — a do-it-all play by Jones, who abused Sherman throughout the first quarter en route to three catches for 27 yards and the touchdown.
