Special Teams: C
The good: Jacoby Jones had a nice 47 yard return, and totaled 109 yards returning kicks with a 27.3 average. Jeromy Miles blocked a field goal attempt. The bad: most everything else. The Ravens gave up a 45 yard return to Adam Jones, and Justin Tucker missed a field goal. But to be fair, it was a 55 yarder.
Tucker did connect on his second try, and hit all four extra point attempts. And Sam Koch had a pretty good day, punting four times for 169 yards (42.3 avg) with a long of 52 yards. Not a bad day by any means, but not a great one either.
