He was up to the task.
Jones matched the best game of his career with 182 yards receiving, including an 81-yard touchdown catch, and the Falcons held on for their first win of the season, 31-24 over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
“I know the other guys on the field are counting on me to make those plays when the ball comes my way,” Jones said.
Matt Ryan threw for 374 yards and two scores despite taking quite a beating behind the Falcons’ shaky offensive line. Jason Snelling clinched it for the Falcons (1-1) with an 11-yard touchdown run with 6:12 remaining, Atlanta’s longest play of the day on the ground.
