The Hamilton Tiger-Cats played their home opener on Friday night, notching a 31-17 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli went wire-to-wire for Hamilton, completing 31 of 41 passes (75.6 percent) for 369 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.

For the season, the former Mississippi quarterback has completed 75 of 106 passes for 1,045 yards and four scores. He has a 70.7-percent completion percentage and a per-pass average of 9.85 yards.

Andre Roberts, the Falcons’ main kick and punt returner from a year ago, signed with the Jets during free agency.

But the bigger point is this: The Falcons are far from naming a starter on those units – and that’ll be one of the key storylines to come out of training camp.

While Jones’ play in coverage has been superb for the Falcons, he’s also proven to be a rangy, sideline-to-sideline tackler who is an effective three-down linebacker. Jones has also shown a flair for making big plays in critical moments, most recently intercepting Drew Brees in the end zone to clinch a Falcons victory over their rival on Thursday Night Football in 2017.
