Eight days after signing a long-term contract extension with the Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones became the franchise’s all-time leading receiver and the team's savior on Sunday night in a 24-20 win against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jones entered Sunday night’s matchup against the Eagles needing 102 yards to surpass Roddy White for the most receiving yards in Falcons history. With a 54-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, Jones passed that mark and further cemented himself as a Falcons legend.
Jones was the Falcons' leading receiver on Sunday, catching five passes for 106 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Per ESPN's Field Yates, Jones' six-game touchdown streak is the longest active streak in the NFL.
Falcons fans are currently witnessing one of the greatest duos to every play; Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
