He made 138 tackles, with three interceptions and nine pass breakups this season. All his statistics ranked in the top five of the NFL, though tackles remain an unofficial statistic.

Jones earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his game against the Saints in Week 14.

  1. As a Falcon fan, I gotta say Jones is a bit overrated. People only know his name bc he makes a play every now and again, but watching him the entirety of a game he can get washed out. I like the guy. But people act like he’s the next Bobby Wagner.

  2. As a Falcon fan, Jones got shredded in the Super Bowl. He alone gave up the game losing drive. He’s the ready James White had an amazing game. Buddy couldn’t keep White out of the end zone on the sweep the last play of the game.
