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.
75 yards. He’s GONE.— NFL (@NFL) October 2, 2016
JULIO JONES IS A MONSTER. #CARvsATL https://t.co/nPgbXeaSW1
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.
