After a mediocre performance in his Titans debut last week, wide receiver Julio Jones was seeking his first touchdown with his new team in Tennessee’s Week 2 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jones came down with an incredible catch on a 3rd-and-5 play with 1:09 to go in the first half that was originally ruled a touchdown. After an official review, the call was overturned.

The touchdown would have brought the Titans within four points of Seattle. Instead, Titans Randy Bullock drilled a 24-yard field goal to put Tennessee down one possession.
