WATCH: Julio Jones Makes Circus Catch, Somehow Uninjured On Play

Bryan Altman

Julio Jones is having a game for the ages.

After his toe-tapping TD in the first half, Jones started the second half with an unbelievable  73-yard TD to extend the Falcons’ lead to 31-0.

Still, those two plays might now have to take a backseat to Jones’ absolutely absurd third-quarter catch that he miraculously emerged from uninjured.

On first-and-10 from the Falcons’ 35-yard line, Jones leaped up for a high Matt Ryan pass over the middle and was upended by cornerback LaDarius Gunter, sending Jones crashing back down to the earth straight on his neck.

Incredibly, Jones was uninjured AND he managed to hang onto the ball for a 23-yard gain.

It’s been an inhuman performance from Jones, who’s having one of the greatest playoff games by a wide receiver in NFL history.

Luckily for NFL fans around the world, we’ll likely be able to watch him do it one more time this season in two weeks at Super Bowl LI in Houston.
