Julio Jones Makes Insane Over-The-Shoulder Catch For TD (Video)

I wrote earlier in my Falcons-Bucs preview that Matt Ryan is a machine at home.  I wasn’t wrong, as the Falcons are taking out two-years worth of frustration on the Buccaneers.

If only the Falcons could play all their games at the Georgia Dome.
