The Atlanta Falcons remained the NFL’s only undefeated team by beating the Dallas Cowboys 19-13 on Sunday night, and former Foley High School standout Julio Jones again played a big part in the Atlanta attack. Jones, a wide receiver who played at Alabama in college, caught five passes for 129 yards against the Cowboys. His receptions included a 38-yarder that he made even though Dallas cornerback Morris Claiborne was flagged on interference on the play. Jones also had catches of 48, 20, 18 and 5 yards.
