Two November scores lead to award for Jacoby Jones

Signing Jacoby Jones to return kickoffs and punts has worked out very well for the Ravens.

Jones returned a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown to help the Ravens beat the Raiders in Week 10 and he returned a punt 63 yards for Baltimore’s only touchdown in a 13-10 win over the Steelers the next week. That was good enough to help Baltimore go 4-0 for the month as well as make Jones the AFC special teams player of the month.

The two scores gave Jones three on the season. He returned a kick 108 yards for a score against the Cowboys earlier this season, tying an NFL record for the longest kickoff return in history. His touchdown against the Raiders made him the only player with two kick return touchdowns of 105 or more yards over the course of his career. Jones has seven combined kickoff and punt returns over the course of his career, which he spent in Houston until this season.

A muffed punt in the playoff loss to the Ravens helped stamp his ticket out of town and put him in the rare position of helping the Ravens from two different angles in successive years.

    Way to go Jacoby. What a pickup for the Ravens. Just another gem from Oz and co.

    He’s also made some big plays as a receiver also, so he’s much more to the Ravens than a return specialist.

    The Texans have lost Leach,Pollard, and Jones to the Ravens in consecutive years – all significant contributors. Here’s to hoping they lose A. Johnson and JJ Watt to the Ravens in the next 2 years!
