In the first meeting between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens escaped with a 13-10 win on the strength of a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones in the first quarter.
Keeping Jones' prowess on returns – he leads the NFL in kick return touchdowns with three this season – in mind, the Steelers did their best to limit Jones' opportunities in their 23-20 win against the Ravens Sunday.
Jones returned three kicks for a total of 74 yards, but he didn't get past the Ravens' 26-yard line. Two more Shaun Suisham kickoffs resulted in touchbacks. And Jones got just two chances on punt returns, but both ended in fair catches.
After the game, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin acknowledged that the strategy on special teams was to keep the ball away from Jones.
