Milestone watch: Will Julio Jones set a new single-season receptions record?

New, comments

Just 26 catches to go! In two weeks!

Julio Jones set a new Atlanta Falcons single-season receptions record last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, topping Roddy White's 115-catch season in 2010.

Now with 118 catches on the season, will Julio Jones set a new NFL single-season receptions record?

Marvin Harrison set that mark in 2002 when he caught 143 passes with the Indianapolis Colts. That means Jones needs to haul in 26 balls the next two weeks — 25 to tie.

The Falcons are home for the final two games of the season.

This Sunday they'll face the Carolina Panthers; Jones caught seven passes in the Week 14 matchup.

In the season finale, the Falcons take on the New Orleans Saints; Jones posted six receptions in the Week 6 game.

The stud receiver racked up 34 catches in the first three games of the season, and he's also had two instances in which he's posted double-digit receptions in consecutive games.

What do you think? Will Jones break Harrison's record — or at least match that mark?
