Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had quite a day.

The 27-year-old completely dismantled the Carolina Panthers secondary, recording 300 yards on 12 receptions. That makes Jones just the sixth receiver to record at least 300 yards in a single game in NFL history, and the first since Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson’s 329-yard effort in 2013.

The 300-yard game bested Jones‘ previous single game high, a 259-yard game in 2014, by 41 yards.

The Falcons beat the Panthers 48-33, raising Atlanta’s record to 3-1.
