Julio Jones has 6th-highest yardage game in NFL history with 300 receiving yards

It just isn't a football season if Julio isn't breaking records.

Julio Jones had his best career game against the Carolina Panthers week four. With 12 receptions for 300 yards and 1 touchdown, he has the best game of any Falcons receiver in franchise history. He was also just a few yards short of the best game from a wide receiver in NFL history.

Jones bounced back from a forgettable game against the New Orleans Saints to dominate the Carolina Panthers weak secondary to the tune of 25 yards per catch. The Panthers simply didn't have a single player worthy of matching up with Julio, and he was still catching footballs in double and triple coverage.

This is simply another mind-blowing game from Atlanta's freak wide receiver who makes 300 reception yards look easy. He's unequivocally the best wide receiver in the NFL.
