Former Syracuse Star Arthur Jones "on cloud nine" at Super Bowl XLVII

The Jones Brothers are used to a big stage, but former Syracuse Football star Arthur Jones can't wait to get on the biggest of stages this Sunday. Brother of Ultimate Fighting star Jon "Bones" Jones, and fellow former Syracuse star and current New England Patriot Chandler Jones, Arthur admits this is undoubtedly one of the great highlights of his sporting life.
"I'm on cloud nine right now," admits Jones, "it doesn't get a bigger stage than this. Sunday night it's gonna be straight fireworks, so I can't wait."
Art finished the AFC Championship game with two tackles, and one fumble recovery, as his Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots, a team that featured his brother Chandler. Jones and the Ravens defense enters Sunday's big game on a high after keeping Tom Brady and the Pats off the board in the second half of a 28-13 win to advance to Super Bowl XLVII.
Jones says his Syracuse experience should give a big advantage heading into the Superdome in New Orleans.
"I'm familiar with Domes," says Jones, "you know playing in the Carrier Dome up in Syracuse, so I feel comfortable right now, if we had to play today I'd be ready to go."
