For those who bemoan the militarism and regimentation of American football, this is the perfect illustration of why the beauty of the game is in the details, leading to this magnificent catch on Sunday by Julio Jones of the Falcons.
He may need to do more of the same against the Giants in the playoffs.
This is my sports moment of the weekend. But I’m biased. This is my team, and four consecutive post-season years is still something to get used to. Sometimes I think this is all an apparition. As are Jones’ highlight reel catches all season.
