Falcons' Jones gets playoff rematch with Seahawks' Sherman

Written by  Associated Press

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Julio Jones simply shrugged instead of screaming and shouting following a costly no-call against Richard Sherman three months ago.

By contrast, Sherman had a meltdown in the same Falcons-Seahawks game when things didn't go his way.

On Saturday, the two stars will meet again in a high-profile matchup when Seattle visits Atlanta in a NFC divisional playoff game.

Seattle beat the Falcons 26-24 on Oct. 16. The Falcons' hopes for a late comeback ended on an incompletion from quarterback Matt Ryan to Jones. Sherman hooked Jones' right arm as he was draped over the receiver, but there was no call on the apparent pass interference.

Jones, who had seven catches for 139 yards and a touchdown, explained Wednesday why he quickly moved past the play.

"At the end of the day, one play doesn't define a game," Jones said. "It's everything. ... My job is to go out there and compete for the ball and it's the referee's job to call whatever they see.

"That's how I get over it. I went out there on that play and competed as hard as I could and didn't come up with the catch. On to the next."

Falcons receiver Aldrick Robinson cringed this week when reminded about the no-call.
