VIDEO: Julio Jones Turns Dumpoff Into Explosive Touchdown

The Atlanta Falcons started out their Thursday night game (the biggest Thursday night game of the week) against the Jacksonville Jaguars with the prototypical Falcons drive. Tony Gonzalez, Michael Turner and Roddy White made big contributions, with a huge play by Julio Jones capping the whole thing off:

Just a standard drag route that most receivers would've turned into a first down. At one point, it looks like Jacksonville's defense is moving backward as he cracks the secondary. He's pretty OK at sports.

My favorite part, though: Jacquizz Rodgers beating Jones to the end zone. It's nice to be welcomed!
