Jacoby Jones was the hero of the Baltimore Ravens' upset of the Denver Broncos in the divisional round of the playoffs last year, hauling in a 70-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Flacco with less than a minute remaining to force overtime.
In the season-opening rematch between the two teams Thursday night, Jones barely got the chance to repeat his heroics.
After pulling in three passes for 24 yards in the first quarter, Jones was back to field a punt early in the second quarter when his night ended prematurely.
Just after signaling for a fair catch, Jones was plowed over by rookie teammate Brynden Trawick.
Jones left the game with a sprained right knee, and Trawick got a talking-to from Coach John Harbaugh.
“Tried to teach him that he's got to be willing to turn his head," Harbaugh said. "That's an experience problem. He's an inexperienced guy.”
