The Atlanta wide receiver had a day for the history books.

Against a stout defensive group of dabbing, photo-taking, bat-wielding Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had the best game in franchise history. We've seen Julio take control of football games and stack up 200+ yards before, but Sunday's win was another level.

Sunday's performance may end up being the best offensive game all year. Jones has been piling up these awards. This is his third player of the week under Kyle Shanahan.

Who was likely the number two in voting? Matt Ryan and his 503 passing yards. It was a masterful offensive game plan and the Panthers barely slowed down Atlanta. The combination of Ryan and Jones looks likes the best connection in the entire NFL.
