Special teams: B+

Hard to find much fault with the Ravens’ special team unit.  Justin Tucker was once again excellent, going 3/3 on field goals and extra points with a long of 51 yards.  Sam Koch only punted once, sending it 39 yards inside the 20.

Asa Jackson and Michael Campanaro continued their competition for the vacant returner job, but Jackson left the game with a knee injury.  Before departing, he had 2 returns for 17 yards.  Camp added one return for 10.

They didn’t get too many opportunities, but with two injury prone guys competing for the job, the Ravens have to be slightly nervous.  Perhaps we’ll see another guy like DeAndre Carter get a shot soon.
