Julio Jones has a great visit to ‘Lake Norman’ in Week 16 victory

The Atlanta Falcons pulled off a stunner, defeating the previously unbeaten Carolina Panthers 20-13 on Sunday. A huge part of that victory was the play of star wide receiver Julio Jones, who finished with nine catches for 178 yards and a ridiculous 70-yard touchdown.

While the talk before the matchup was about Jones against Josh Norman, many may try to argue that Norman wasn’t always on Jones, which is true. Unfortunately, when Carolina’s top cornerback was on Jones, things didn’t go very well.

That’s pretty amazing to read, especially when you look at what Norman had been able to do against a few of the other top receivers in the NFL.

It seems as though both Norman, and the Panthers as a whole, came back down to earth just a bit this Sunday.
