Julio Jones is a superstar. Not only is the Atlanta Falcons wide receiver a beast at making the big catches but apparently he can tackle the hell out of the opposing team if need be.
Following an interception of Matt Ryan, Tampa Bay’s Kwon Alexander tried to take it back for a touchdown. Not on Julio Jones watch. Jones sprinted 80 yards down the field to deliver this tremendous play and throw Alexander to the ground.

The cruel aftermath to the play? It was called back due to Buccaneers’ defensive end Jacquies Smith being offside resulting in a penalty. Jones was so exhausted he was forced to sit out the next play. Some may say the tackle was for nothing but the fact that we can relive this moment on replay means it was all worth. Well done, Julio.
