Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan unleashed a terribly thrown deep pass to Julio Jones that was nowhere near Atlanta’s top receiver. He quickly realized how bad the pass was and turned into a defensive back on the play.
Cowboys safety Jeff Heath had an easy interception lined up when he was laid out by Jones to breakup the pass. That was a textbook hit by Julio.

There’s becoming a defender to breakup a pass and then there’s crushing the defensive back into a pile of dust like Julio did on this play. Heath probably isn’t a fan of taking these kinds of shots.
