During the regular season the longest completion allowed by the 49ers was a 53 yarder, putting their secondary in a tie for first with Buffalo in that category. Now, just seven plays into the NFC Championship, the Falcons have a touchdown reception which came only seven yards short of that season long.
It was a 46-yard TD pass to Julio Jones, who already has four grabs just seven minutes into the first quarter. Hey, Dashon Goldson, I think you were supposed to have the deep help there.
Also, biting on that play fake with one of the fastest dudes on the field running deep probably wasn’t a good idea. Just sayin’.
