Super Bowl 51: Julio Jones hauls in ridiculous catch

Devonta Freeman followed up those plays with a pair of runs for 24 yards and the Patriots needed a timeout to get themselves together with the ball on their own 5-yard-line. Jones took that right foot, and came down with it in a way that said, "I'm going to make this damn play".

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive tackle Vincent Valentine (back), and defensive tackle Alan Branch (toe) were all limited this week, but they will be ready to go against the Falcons. The former Alabama Crimson Tide star receiver was double and triple covered by the Patriots defense most of the game, forcing season MVP Matt Ryan to use other receivers.

Jones has been impressive on the field for the Falcons all season. Julio Jones' catch in the fourth quarter as the Patriots were mounting a vicious and historic comeback was nothing short of spectacular. At the same time, this play was one of the best seen during Super Bowl 51. The more serious situation is that of defensive end Dwight Freeney, who is dealing with a calf injury.

For now, all three players will likely be in the game on Sunday.
