WATCH: Falcons score first on Matt Ryan pass to Julio Jones


GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After not reaching the end zone until the fourth quarter against the Ravens, the Falcons' offense didn't waste any time putting 7 points on the board Sunday against the Packers.

Aided by a pair of upheld challenges, the Falcons moved the ball down the field on their opening possession of the game before punching it into the end zone on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Matt Ryan to Julio Jones.

Jones and Ryan have had plenty of success in Green Bay. In his last game at Lambeau Field, Jones caught 11 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown, while Ryan threw for 375 yards and four touchdowns.

On the Falcons' first drive, Ryan surpassed Peyton Manning for the most passing yards by any quarterback in his first 11 NFL seasons. Jones could also become the first player in NFL history to have five consecutive seasons with 80 catches and 1,400 yards during today's game.
