Falcons Vs. Jaguars Highlights: Roddy White, John Abraham Put On A Show

The final score (41-14 in favor of Atlanta) should tell you everything you need to know about this one.

The offense was dominant. Roddy White caught 10 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns, and Julio Jones wasn't far behind with five catches for 85 yards and a 29-yard score. Matt Ryan was as impressive as he's been all season, and for most of the game the offense simply looked unstoppable. It would seem they're finally starting to click.

Not to be outdone, the defense was just as impressive. John Abraham had 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles on the night. Sean Weatherspoon and William Moore were making big-time stops in the open field all game. Thomas DeCoud came up with a tip-drill interception that was one of three Blaine Gabbert turnovers, and the rookie QB was held to only 141 yards passing.

That said, on to the full highlights from this Thursday Night blowout:

Falcons-Jaguars Week 15 Highlights

The touchdown pass to Julio Jones was just about as simple as it gets: a dumpoff to the rookie wideout on a drag route over the middle. But thanks to perhaps some lack of coverage, Julio was left wide open and outran the safety to the end zone.

Later int he game, White would come up with an equally impressive touchdown reception. Left all alone on the far sideline, Ryan again took advantage of a breakdown in coverage and made the Jags pay.

What the highlights do not show, however, was the ineptitude of Jacksonville's wide receivers. To be fair, they're down to several practice squad guys after numerous injuries. But in Gabbert's defense, they could barely catch anything. Without a passing game, the offense understandably went nowhere.

As for the Falcons, they've built up some big-time momentum over the last two weeks. Hopefully they'll carry that with them as they travel to New Orleans next Monday to take on the Saints.
