Jones hit mark: Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones, who played in his 127th game, surpassed Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison (131 games) as the second-fastest player to reach 800 career receptions in NFL history.
Jones had nine catches for 157 yards in the loss to Seattle. He now has 806 receptions for 12,282 yards.
It was Jones' 16th game with 150 yards or more receiving, which moved Jones past Pro Football Hall of Famer Don Maynard (15) and Calvin Johnson (15) for the fourth-most such games in NFL history.
Only Hall of Famers Jerry Rice (30), Lance Alworth (17) and Terrell Owens (17) have more 150-plus games.
Pass happy. Jones was joined in the 100-yards receiving mark by Calvin Ridley (130) and Russell Gage (114).
Gurley TD run. Gurley, who played in his 74th game, tied Pro Football Hall of Famer Lenny Moore (71), as well as Chuck Foreman (71) for the fourth-most total touchdowns through a player’s first 75 career games.
McKinley played well: Falcons defensive end Takk McKinley had a sack and six quarterback hits, a new career-high, and one pass defense.
