This one was over early. 

From the second play of the game when Delone Carter fumbled, it was evident the Falcons were going to have a good day. It wasn't until later that fans would find out that Julio Jones specifically would be the Falcon who had the best day.

First, Jones made an unbelievable diving grab in the end zone for a 50-yard touchdown. That by itself was impressive. But the rookie wasn't done working on the dismal Colts defense.

Just a few minutes later, Jones caught a slant and ran all the way into the end zone for an 80-yard score. And suddenly, the Falcons had a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter and the game was already out-of-reach.

The Colts looked as if they may start a comeback when Jerraud Powers intercepted Matt Ryan and returned it six yards for a touchdown, but the Colts' offense simply had nothing going today. That was the only Colts score of the day. The offense managed no points.

Atlanta tacked on another touchdown and a field goal for good measure, but honestly, the game was over in the first half. The commentators even struggled to keep this game interesting in the fourth quarter.

Final score: Falcons 31, Colts 7
