Jones after Falcons' stunning Super Bowl loss: "Don't fall apart"

Jones after Falcons' stunning Super Bowl loss:

Atlanta takes on the Patriots in Super Bowl LI on Sunday in Houston.

Julio Jones' troublesome toe could occupy his time into the offseason. The Atlanta Falcons star will be evaluated after his team battles the New England Patriots tonight.

This type of play is something Falcons fans are used to and one of the reasons why Atlanta has advanced to Super Bowl 51. The Falcons are concerned about whether Mack will be able to hold his ground in the run game, especially against 350-pound DT Alan Branch and the Patriots vaunted run defense. However, it was on their second scoring drive where he made his biggest play of the half. "I didn't feel like we were playing real aggressive, we were just trying to play smart and do what would give us the best chance to move the chains".

For the Falcons wideout, though, those types of incredible plays are commonplace. Jones will have his foot evaluated after the Super Bowl to determine whether or not he requires surgery to fix the injury.

It wasn't your usual drag of the toe play that - while still a great play by anybody who makes it - we see often.
