Ravens KR Jacoby Jones Named AFC Special Teams Player Of Week 10
Ravens return specialist Jacoby Jones' instincts and speed have propelled him to a pair of record-breaking kickoff returns this season, and now he's been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.
Jones' prowess on returns has essentially earned him the green light to take it out of the end zone even if he's backed up deep.
Through nine games, Jones has returned 14 kickoffs for a 38.6 average per return with a 108-yard kickoff return for a score against the Dallas Cowboys to tie an NFL record. Jones' 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown Sunday during a 55-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders made him the first Ravens player to return two kickoff returns for TDs in the same season.
"It depends on hang time," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "We don't really have a depth issue. The whole dynamic of the kickoff return rules have changed. What happened is when you bring them out that deep, the geometry of the play has a changed a little bit, so you see more big plays."
