For better or for worse, Julio Jones was in the Christmas spirit Sunday morning.
The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver arrived at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for his team’s Week 16 game against the New Orleans Saints wearing an epic, though horrendously ugly Christmas sweater. Seriously, look at this monstrosity:
On second thought, maybe it’s not that bad.
Nevermind — yes it is.
Hopefully, Jones gets serious in time for kickoff. At 9-5, the Falcons currently hold a wild-card spot, but three teams — the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys — all sit 8-6 and ready to pounce, should the Falcons slip up in New Orleans.
