  • The Titans beat the Bills 34-31 on Monday night.
  • Julio Jones made a jaw-dropping catch on a crucial play.
  • The pass bounced off a defender's helmet and Jones caught the ball just before it went out.

On Monday night, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Julio Jones came down with a Catch of the Year candidate against the Buffalo Bills.

In the second quarter, with the Titans trailing 13-7 and facing third-and-8 at their own 23-yard line, quarterback Ryan Tannehill floated a pass deep down the right side of the field in Jones' direction.

The ball came out a little flat and deflected off of the helmet of Bills safety Micah Hyde, ricocheting straight into the air. A flag was thrown on Hyde for defensive pass interference, but rather than give up on the ball, Jones looked skyward to locate it, readjusted on the fly, and came down with the catch with a beautiful toe-tap to keep his feet in bounds.

While referees initially ruled he was out of bounds, after some discussion, the call was corrected.

Subesquent replays showed just how quickly Jones adjusted to the ball. Amidst the chaos, he never let the ball leave his sight.

The play would go down as a 48-yard reception for Jones, and the Titans would end the drive with a field goal to cut the Bills lead to 13-10.

When the game went final, the Titans prevailed 34-31, showing just how crucial Jones' catch and the field goal that came of it proved to be.
