Falcons Vs. Dolphins: Julio Jones' First NFL Catch Leads To Michael Turner Touchdown

If the Atlanta Falcons offense is switching up its style, the defense doesn't appear to be, based on early returns. On the second Miami Dolphins play from scrimmage, a Chad Henne pass doinked off his intended receiver and into John Abraham's hands.

What was Abe doing back there? The same thing he's always doing back there. Any problems with that can be taken up with Brian VanGorder's mustache.

The Birds broke out the vintage offense on their next drive, with Michael Turner breaking two productive runs for 21 yards before a play action pass into double coverage failed to find Tony Gonzalez. Kind of looked like interference.

And then explosive arrived -- Julio Jones caught his first pass, turning a drag route into 21 yards. Um, he's a full-grown NFL player, in case you haven't heard yet. Jason Snelling banged near the goal line, and Turner punched in the touchdown.
