The Falcons, at 7-4, now have strung together three wins in a row as they march toward securing a playoff spot. But the real story of the day was Julio Jones.

Jones caught touchdowns from Matt Ryan and fellow wide receiver Mohamed Sanu as the Falcons built a big lead and held on late.

The Buccaneers defense is going to have nightmares about Jones until they face the Falcons again on December 18. The Atlanta Falcons have two, apparently.
