In his break out year as a return specialist, Balimore Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones is now a marked man.
"Oh yeah, I got that bulls-eye on my chest," Jones told Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. "That's what happens."
His last return for a TD was on Dec. 2, a 63-yard punt return against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 13-10 win, and just last week against the Colts in the wild card round, had a 37-yard kickoff return and a 34-yard punt return, making him someone the top-seeded Broncos will need to pay close attention to.
"It's a field-position game," Jones said. "We got to play our game and hope we hit a crease. I always try to break one. At this point of year, everybody is going to run down hard and try to make a tackle and make a play... In this kind of game, I will take the good field position anytime and get a good drive started for the offense. If one pops, it pops. It can happen when you least expect it."
Jones' little technique of pacing back and forth before receiving the punt or kickoff seems to work as teams don't know exactly what he's about to do once the ball's in his hands.
"That's my little thing that I do; It helps me get in a rhythm by moving back and forth. I don't want them to know where I'm gong to be. I like to get the crowd into it. That's like my mojo."

When it comes to Ray Lewis and the celebration/glorification of his illustrious, 17-season NFL career, the cliche "what's done is done" applies.
As his career comes to a close, perhaps this weekend when the Ravens take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos, football fans should not be ashamed of loving Ray Lewis. He's earned our admiration and respect.
That is not...
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis took exception to Indianapolis wide receiver Reggie Wayne calling his dance at the end of Sunday's AFC wild-card game disrespectful. Lewis, who announced last week that he's retiring from the NFL after 17 seasons when the Ravens are eliminated from the playoffs, said he wasn't taunting the Colts or rubbing it in. "It wasn...

Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard has been around the league long enough not to fool himself. He knows this weekend’s match up with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos comes down to one thing. Pressure.
Time is the enemy for the Ravens, the more time afforded to Manning, the bigger the problem will be. Keeping receivers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in check will go...
Monte Sanders, a fitness expert and the CEO and owner of Sanders Optimum Fitness, is way more than just the celebrity trainer to Baltimore Ravens' stars Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. We go inside the brotherhood that began with training.
Peyton Manning is ready to light-up the old Ravens defense this weekend.
The Wildcard round provided us with one really good game and three pretty poor ones.
Here's a first look at the Divisional Round
Baltimore vs Denver - The Ravens were able to beat a young Colts team but it was not an impressive victory. Yes Flacco threw for 282yds, but he was 12-23 which is...

One day before facing the Broncos in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Ravens placed starting offensive guard Jah Reid (toe) on injured reserve.
Reid did not play in Baltimore’s win over the Colts last week in the wild card round of the playoffs and will be replaced by Bobbie Williams on the Ravens’ offensive line. Williams started...
Ray Lewis has said this is his final year in the NFL. The Ravens - Broncos matchup will be the last time fans get to see Lewis vs Manning. Win or lose this weekend, The Ravens and Broncos will go on. They'll just be doing it without the Lewis vs Manning highlight.
Last week’s wildcard weekend saw no underdogs winning in what ended up being four lopsided games. Solid victories came at home for Baltimore, Green Bay, and Houston (yes, I know they only won by six points but they dominated time of possession and never really looked threatened by Cincinnati). Seattle completed the superfecta for the favorites with a road win at Washington. All...
