The San Francisco 49ers Can’t Stop WR Julio Jones

Julio Jones

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

This game started out better than any Atlanta Falcons‘ fan could possibly imagine. The Falcons passing game is almost unstoppable in a 17-7 game in the middle of the second quarter. Falcons WR Julio Jones has six catches for 120 yards, but the San Francisco 49ers‘ is starting to move.

QB Matt Ryan connected with Jones for a 46 yards because of a blown coverage by the 49ers secondary including All-Pro S Dashon Goldson. The 49ers expected Jones to sit down and he just kept on running all the way under a perfectly thrown pass. The best offensive line in football continues to show us why they have that title; Ryan has barely been bothered inside the pocket and is currently picking the 49ers apart.

On the other side WR Roddy White is not having too bad of a game. He has four catches for over 60 yards and a very important third down catch that allowed Ryan to hook up with Jones for the touchdown. RB Michael Turner is starting to get into the action and if the Falcons can get all three parts of their offense going the 49ers are going to have a hard time keeping up.

This game looks oddly similar to last weeks effort against the Seattle Seahawks. The Falcons have jumped out to an early lead, but they need to learn to finish the game, so they don’t give some of their elderly fans a heart attack. Ryan is “doin work” right now. If he keeps this up, the Falcons will embarrass the 49ers.

Super Bowl 50 Highlights: Broncos vs Panthers

If this is Peyton Manning’s final game he’ll ride off into the sunset on top. The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 24-10 on Sunday behind their incredible defense especially the pass rush from linebackers Von Miller (who made two big plays) and DeMarcus Ware. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers’ offense looked stunned unable to create much of anything under constant pressure. Lets take a look at the best highlights from the big game. Cam Newton got an early taste of what Tom Brady felt in the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago.
