The Atlanta Falcons’ superstar wide receiver did post 143 receiving yards on 10 catches and passed a major career milestone in today’s win, though.

According to the NFL’s Communications Department, Jones tied Marvin Harrison for the sixth most games in league history with at least 10 catches and 100 receiving yards or more.

The next time that Jones does it, he’ll tie Jerry Rice in this lofty department.

<![CDATA[Continues dominance of Tampa Bay]]> Jones hauled in 10 of 14 targets for 143 yards as the Falcons climbed to 2-4 with a 34-29 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday.

In a Week 5 loss to Pittsburgh, Jones did not record a reception until the fourth quarter. Atlanta was sure to get the two-time All Pro involved early and often Sunday against Tampa Bay, as he had seven receptions for 79 yards by halftime in what would prove to be a winning effort. It was the Buccaneers who Jones exploited last year for the greatest game of his NFL career -- 12 catches for 253 yards and two touchdowns -- and that pattern persisted as the Falcons registered a crucial midseason victory to keep hope alive. Week 7 brings a date with the Giants, a team that has fared decently against the pass in holding opponents to 236 yards per game thus far this season.

<![CDATA[GALLERY: The best of Julio Jones dominating the Buccaneers]]> Julio Jones has not caught a touchdown pass in the regular season since he caught two in Week 11 last year against the Buccaneers. That also happens to be 11 regular season games ago. Coincidence or not, Jones is overdue for some scoring and he’s historically dominated the Bucs.

In 12 games against the Bucs, Jones has posted 83 catches for 1,413 yards and 10 touchdowns, all career highs.

Sometimes the first step towards getting what you want is visualizing it, so in that spirit here’s some photos of Jones scoring and celebrating against Tampa through the years]]>

Jones was the No. 1 Week 5 receiver for many analysts, but he started the fourth quarter without a single reception against a Pittsburgh defense that entered the game allowing the sixth-most yards per attempt in the NFL (8.1). The five-time Pro Bowler went to work in the final frame to salvage a respectable output, amassing five catches for 62 yards, much of it coming in junk time as the Falcons fell to 1-4. Atlanta's Week 6 opponent, Tampa Bay, has struggled mightily in containing opposing passing attacks, ranking dead last in yards allowed per game through the air (358).

<![CDATA[Cleared for Sunday in Pittsburgh]]> Jones (hand/ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jones didn't practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday, but he returned to full participation Friday. It's the same patter he followed last week on his way to catching nine of 12 targets for 173 yards in a 37-36 loss to the Bengals. Jones will now take aim at a Pittsburgh defense that's allowed wideouts to score seven touchdowns in four games while producing 16.4 yards per catch and 9.5 per target.

In previous weeks, Jones' practice reps were capped as a result of a calf concern, but a pair of new injuries are to blame in the midst of Week 5 prep. While he is notorious for playing through the pain and producing lofty numbers, his status should be monitored closely this week to ensure he's available Sunday against the Steelers' 29th-ranked pass defense, which has allowed 304.8 yards per game.
