Jones' return helps Falcons eliminate Saints, 30-14

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Julio Jones needed only two offensive snaps to dispel any notion that he'd be merely a decoy for the Atlanta Falcons, too hampered by his injured hip to be truly effective.

Racing down the right sideline, he made a twisting, falling grab, looking as if he'd coated his hands with glue, for a 23-yard gain while New Orleans cornerback Keenan Lewis tried in vain to swat the ball loose.

When his day was done, Jones, who had not practiced or played since Dec.8, had seven catches for 107 yards, and the Atlanta Falcons vanquished the Saints, 30-14 on Sunday to stay alive in the NFC South race.
