Julio Jones vs. the Panthers: A short history
/ Falcons

By Tim Weaver

When Julio Jones dropped a 300-yard bomb on the Carolina Panthers last season, it was one of the most remarkable accomplishments in what has already been a legendary NFL career.

It wasn’t the first time that Jones absolutely went off on his NFC South rivals, either. Or the second.

He hasn’t always dominated them, but Jones has had three monster performances against the Panthers since coming into the league back in 2011.

Here’s a brief review of how Julio has done in each game.

That comes out to an average of 5.6 catches, 104.7 yards and .55 touchdowns per game. Not bad.

The Falcons have also not fared well against Carolina with Jones out of the lineup. Jones sat out most of the 2013 season with a broken foot and missed both games against them that year. In those two games, the Falcons struggled to move the chains and couldn’t keep up on the scoreboard. The Panthers won both meetings, first by a score of 34-10 at home and then 21-20 in Atlanta.
