Shutdown Corner - NFL

Rookie Julio Jones(notes) had his coming out party today as the Falcons throttled the Colts. He missed the Falcons' last two games with an injured hamstring, but no effects of the injury showed up as he made this diving, 50-yard catch.

The catch was originally called incomplete, but Jones knew that he had made it without the ball or his knee hitting the ground. He was right, as the call was overturned, and the Falcons got the score.

Later in the game, Jones had an 80-yard touchdown reception, making him the first rookie since Randy Moss(notes) in 1998 to have two 50+ yard TD receptions in the same game. He finished with 131 yards on just three catches, and added 33 yards on the ground.
