Watch: Julio Jones tries to prevent interception, makes catch anyway

Sunday September 20th, 2015

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones made a seemingly impossible catch over Giants safety Brandon Meriweather in the fourth quarter Sunday.

As Matt Ryan unleashed a deep pass from his own end zone into double coverage, Jones reached over the back of Meriweather just to get a hand on the ball and prevent an interception. 

He not only prevented a turnover, he caught the ball.

With one hand, Jones tipped the ball up into the air and corralled it with his right arm.

Jones finished the game with 13 catches for 135 yards, and didn’t hide how he felt about his catch after the game.

“Which one?” Jones replied, when asked about his one-handed snag. “Seriously. I feel like all of them are amazing when I catch the ball.”
