The Atlanta Falcons are looking for a big turnaround in 2014 after what was an absolutely miserable showing in 2013, and so far in their third preseason game against the Tennessee Titans, the offense is showing they have the firepower necessary to make last season just a bad, distant memory. The latest comes courtesy of Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
Already with a touchdown pass in the game to Devin Hester, early on in the second quarter, Ryan found Jones for what was an amazing 52-yard scoring play.

Well if, for whatever reason, there were people out there still worried about Jones’ injured foot that kept him out of last season, I think they can clearly see that the dominant wide receiver is back to his old form and ready to dominant the NFL once again.
Jones not being on the field last season was a big reason why the Falcons faltered. His presence on the field alone creates a dynamic for this offense that makes them one of the more dangerous in the entire league.
More of this throughout the season, and the Saints will have their rival back in the NFC South.
