Down year for Julio Jones?

Not when you look at the numbers.

Jones had 88 receptions for 1,444 yards and three touchdowns this season. The Falcons wide receiver became one of just six players in NFL history to have four seasons with at least 80 receptions and 1,400 yards. He is one of two players to do it in four consecutive seasons, along with Marvin Harrison.

Here is the list of those to have at least four 80/1,400 seasons:

Jerry Rice: 6

Julio Jones: 4

Andre Johnson: 4

Antonio Brown: 4

Larry Fitzgerald: 4

Marvin Harrison: 4

Jones was named to his fourth Pro Bowl team earlier this season.

The Falcons play at the Rams on Saturday night in the NFC Wild Card playoff game.
