Julio Jones Makes Incredible One-Handed Catch (GIF)

With the Atlanta Falcons facing a 1st & 20 from their own 27 yard line with 5:35 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Jets leading by a score of 27-20, it was time for a member of the Dirty Birds to step up and make a big play on offense.

That someone was Julio Jones, who hauled in this incredible one-handed 46-yard reception to set the Falcons up with a first down at the Jets’ 27 yard line.

And here’s a look at the catch from another angle:

Matt Ryan and the Falcons would cap the drive off with a touchdown to take the 28-27 lead, but with 1:54 still remaining on the clock, it was just enough time for Jets quarterback Geno Smith to take his team down the field and set up the game-winning field goal.

So yeah, Julio’s one-handed grab was all for naught, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive, does it?
