Kirk Cousins INT on first play leads to Julio Jones TD for Falcons

Kirk Cousins, Julio Jones, Vikings, Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons and Julio Jones may have witnessed major changes heading into Week 6. However, it appears to have provided a spark versus Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings.

The Falcons wasted no time taking control after linebacker Deion Jones picked off quarterback Kirk Cousins on the first play of the game, via NFL Twitter:

The Falcons then followed it up with a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Ryan to wide receiver Julio Jones.

It is safe to say that interim head coach Raheem Morris is off to a solid start. It will be interesting to see if the Falcons can maintain it for their first win of the 2020 NFL season.

Meanwhile, it is encouraging to see Jones haul in his first touchdown of the year. Despite his status as one of the elite receivers in the NFL, Ryan’s struggles to find him in the end zone have been well-documented for the Falcons.

Perhaps the regime change was just what the Falcons needed to get back on track.
