As is usual when the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens get together, we have a tight one once again in this AFC North battle.

In games such as this, every play counts in all three phases of the game. Now, when people use that saying, that’s generally an insinuation that special teams will more than likely play a good part in the outcome of the game.

And, there’s really not a lot better special teams players in the NFL than the Ravens’ Jacoby Jones and he proved that again.

After Pittsburgh had scored to cut the lead to 13-7, Jones grabbed the ensuing kickoff back near his own goal line and he proceeded to carry it 73 yards down the field to get his offense some tremendous field position:

It did give them some good positioning, but all they were able to get out of it was a field goal to push the lead to just 16-7, giving the Steelers a little more breathing room.
