Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/2/2016

Once again, we turn to the NFL for an amazing performance that is in the Top 6 all time for a single game.  Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons cracked triple digits in receiving yards.  Not just 100, but triple 100.  Jones torched the Carolina Panthers for 12 catches and 300 yards.  The defending NFC South and NFC Champions had no answer for him.  His biggest catch came after the Panthers erased a 21 point deficit to pull within 8.  One 75 yard touchdown answer, it became apparent that Carolina could not stop Jones if the game went on indefinitely.  Jones has established himself as one of the Top 5 if not Top 2 or 3 receivers in the league, and he's our Sportsman of the Week!

  1. The Panthers ran the wrong scheme....you don't go from catching one pass for 15 yards to this without a completely wrong defensive scheme. He had a nice game,he won't do this again,especially against Benwikere.

  2. So rare in the NFL that teams don't make adjustments or that a single player can take over the game. I agree, it won't happen again.
