Julio Jones uses superhuman body control to haul in spinning TD

This touchdown catch defied reality.

In the third quarter of a Thursday Night Football matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones hauled in a reception for a touchdown that no mere mortal would be able to complete.

This is simply ridiculous.

Rookie Vernon Hargreaves is in coverage against Jones, and at 5’10, Hargreaves is definitely going to have his hands full trying to contain Jones, who is 6’3 and 220 pounds. Hargreaves doesn’t stand a chance.

Jones goes up for the catch, hauls it in, gets both feet down in bounds while gracefully spinning, and extends the Falcons’ lead over the Bucs to 33-14.
