Julio Jones Sets New NFL Record

Atlanta currently owns the No.1 offense in the NFL and not only is Matt Ryan having an MVP-caliber season, his Pro Bowl wide receiver, Julio Jones, is also putting on quite the show.

Following his 111-yard performance on Thursday night, Jones has now recorded 465 career catches, the most in NFL history in a player's first 75 games.

This isn't the first remarkable feat in Jones' career.

Jones set a franchise receiving record with 300 yards in the Falcons' win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 4, becoming the only player in NFL history to have 250-plus yards in a single game on more than one occasion.

Through nine weeks, Jones has 51 receptions for 970 yards and five touchdowns. The All-Pro receiver had the second-most receiving yards in NFL history with 1,871 yards on 136 catches in 2015.
