Special teams: B

First, the big story: Justin Tucker missed a field goal (gasp!).  The normally automatic kicker finished 2/3 with a long of 48 yards and added an extra point.  Now that we’ve got that shocking news out of the way, let’s move on.

Sam Koch punted twice for 99 yards with a long of 53, putting one down inside the 20.  Justin Manton interestingly punted once as well, sending it 42 yards.

Coverage on the Ravens’ one punt return didn’t go so well for Asa Jackson, who wound up losing five yards on the attempt.

He more than made up for it by taking a kick return 103 yards, coming up just short of a touchdown after getting tackled on the 2 yard line.  Terrence Magee returned 2 kicks for 39 yards, and Aldrick Robinson took his one attempt 26 yards.

The battle for the returner job is far from over, but Jackson helped himself tremendously on the night.
