Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Reaction To Jacksonville's Upset Win

There is so much parity in the NFL that it's hard to ever call any win an upset, but the Jacksonville Jaguars 12-7 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football certainly qualifies as that. Heading into the game the Jaguars were just 1-5 and the Ravens were in the conversation for best team in the AFC. Every single one of the people on ESPN's pregame show (and there are lots) picked the Ravens to win.

But to steal a line from Chris Berman, "that is why they play the games." The Jaguars were stingy on defense and their offense created just enough scoring chances for Josh Scobee to put them on top. The Ravens scored a late touchdown, but their offense was so anemic throughout the first three and a half quarters, but at that point it didn't matter. When I'm looking for reaction to a Jacksonville Jaguars game, particularly a win, I go to our Jaguars blog Big Cat Country.

The Jacksonville Jaguars showed up on Monday Night Football with everyone expecting a bloodbath against the Baltimore Ravens. A bloodbath is what everyone in the country got, but of the Ravens variety. The Jaguars defense completely shutdown and stifled the Ravens offense, allowing only 146 yards on offense. Total. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was harassed all game long, being sacked three times and hit a total of six times. For much of the night, Flacco either couldn't hit the broadside of a barn or the Ravens receivers couldn't find a way to get open against the Jaguars secondary.

The Jaguars aren't going to have a lot of wins this year, so any statement win like this one is certainly welcomed.

Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Jacksonville Beats Baltimore 12-7 On Monday Night Football

The Ravens were finally able to get on the board with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, capping a 90 yard, 13 play drive with an Anquan Boldin touchdown. Baltimore cut Jacksonville’s lead to 9-7 but Billy Cundiff’s subsequent onside kick would miss going ten yards by just inches.

The Jags would take over in Baltimore territory, needing only a few yards to enter Josh Scobee’s range. Scobee was Jacksonville’s MVP on Monday night and he drilled his third 50 plus yard field goal to put the Jags back up 5 – forcing an inept Joe Flacco to go the distance for a touchdown to win the game. It was a gamble by head coach Jack Del Rio – even though Scobee was clutch all night, a 51 yarder is certainly no gimme and a missed FG would have required the Ravens to only go 20 yards to be within range for what would have been a game-winning field goal.

It all worked out for Del Rio and the Jags, however, as Scobee came through again and Flacco obliged on the Ravens next possession, quickly throwing a game-ending interception to Drew Coleman. Scobee matched an NFL record with the three 50 plus yard field goals and carried the Jags to a primetime win, their second of the season in an upset over the offensively-challenged Ravens.


Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Scobee Adds Another Field Goal, Jacksonville Leads Baltimore 9-0 After Third Quarter

Josh Scobee added his third field goal of the night to give the Jacksonville Jaguars a 9-0 lead after three quarters of play on Monday Night Football. This time, however, Scobee did not have to connect from 50 plus yards, as a Jaguars drive stalled on the Ravens’ four yard line. The Jags drive was given new life when Baltimore linebacker and special teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo was flagged for unnecessary roughness for a punch to the head of Guy Whimper. It looked like Whimper caught him first, but Ayanbadejo was ejected on the retaliation.

On their final drive of the quarter, the Ravens would finally get their first first down of the night but their offense has still failed to even threaten to enter field goal range. Ray Rice had a double-digit gain but Joe Flacco’s abysmal night continues. The Ravens QB is averaging 1.8 yards per completion. The Jags defense looks to complete the shutout on Monday Night Football and give the Jags their second win of the season.


Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Jacksonville Leads Baltimore 6-0 At Halftime Of Monday Night Football

Josh Scobee added another field goal to give the Jacksonville Jaguars a 6-0 lead at halftime of Monday Night Football. After connecting from 54 yards in the first quarter, Scobee added yet another 54 yarder to extend the lead. The field goal was set up by a running-into-the-kicker penalty by Paul Kruger on a Nick Harris punt. The five yard penalty put the Jags within Scobee range and Jack Del Rio chose to go for the 3 points instead of re-punt the football.

The real story of the first half was the Jags defense and the Ravens inept offense. Baltimore has a grand total of zero first downs on nine possessions. They have 16 total yards on 25 plays. The low point came mid way through the 2nd quarter, when Joe Flacco completed a pass to himself to give the Ravens a down and distance of 4th and 43.

The Jags offense has struggled as well, most notably Maurice Jones-Drew. The typically sure-handed Jones-Drew has fumbled three times in the first half, including a costly lost fumble on the one yard line as the Jags were going in for a touchdown.

Jacksonville will look to keep the heat on Flacco as they seek their second win of the season in primetime.


Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Jacksonville Takes 3-0 Lead After First Quarter

The Jacksonville Jaguars lead the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 3-0 after the first quarter on Monday Night Football. Josh Scobee drilled a 54 yard field goal towards the end of the first to give the Jags the lead. Scobee continued his perfect season but it was only his second longest field goal of the 2011 campaign, having already made a 55 yarder.

The Ravens defense may have all the hype but the first quarter was highlighted by the Jags suffocating defense. The Ravens had four three and outs and a turnover, with no first downs in the first quarter. They gained only 14 yards on 13 plays as Joe Flacco went 2 for 8.

The Jags should have had a larger lead as they threatened to convert a Ray Rice fumble into seven points. But Maurice Jones-Drew would fumble on the one yard line as the Jags were going in for the score. MJD was originally ruled down before the ball came out, but John Harbaugh challenged the play and the call was overturned. After the squandered chance, Scobee would put the Jags on the board to open the scoring on their subsequent possession.


Jaguars Vs. Ravens: Courtney Greene Out, Mike Sims-Walker To Play Monday Night

We’re about four hours from kickoff between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the visiting Baltimore Ravens. The AFC squads meet on Monday Night Football in Jacksonville to conclude Week 7 of the 2011 NFL season.

The two squads are clearly heading in different places organizationally. The Ravens (4-1) feel they are primed to make a Super Bowl run after coming up in short in recent playoffs. The Jaguars (1-5) meanwhile are competing well but not all that competitive. They’re just too young to win consistently just yet, but head coach Jack Del Rio has certainly done a nice job getting his team ready to play hard each week.

There will be a few changes to the Jaguars lineup Monday night, the most notable being the return of wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker. Drafted by the Jaguars in the 2007 draft, Sims-Walker was released in free agency after the 2010 season. Sims-Walker was signed by the St. Louis Rams after the lockout, released one week ago, and then rejoined the Jaguars. Apparently a week of practice was enough to prove that he was ready to play against the Ravens Monday night.

"I’ve been in this offense my whole career, only a couple different plays I haven’t heard before," Sims-Walker said. "But for the most part I’ve got a pretty good grasp on it."

The Jaguars will be without safety Courtney Greene (neck). Expect Joe Flacco and the big-play Ravens passing game to take some shots down the field. On the offensive line, Ebon Britton is listed as doubtful and Eugene Monroe will not start at tackle. 

Kickoff between the Jaguars and Ravens is at 8:30 pm local time. For more Jaguars coverage leading up to tonight’s game, head on over to Big Cat Country.


Jaguars Vs. Ravens: No Television Blackout For Jacksonville's Week 7 Monday Night Football Game

Good news for fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars that were concerned about a potential television blackout preventing the game being telecast across the Jacksonville metro area. After requesting for a 24-hour extension to fill all the non-premium seats for Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Jaguars successfully unloaded the tickets to avoid the television blackout for the Week 7 edition of Monday Night Football.

The game against the Baltimore Ravens will be shown locally on ESPN and Channel 4 (WJXT). Kickoff is at 8:30 pm eastern time, but ESPN's coverage begins 90 minutes earlier with all the pregame hype and news and notes from the rest of the league leading up to kickoff. 

The Jaguars look to snap a five-game losing streak while the Ravens try to stay hot coming off their bye week. The Ravens have won their previous three games handily by a combined score of 100-38. 


Ravens. Vs. Jaguars: Television Schedule, Announcers

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be on display to the world tonight as they host the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. The coverage starts on ESPN at 7 (more realistically 3) but the game won't kick off until about 8:30 on the same network. The announcers, as always, will be Mike Tirico, Ron Jaworski and John Gruden.

The pregame show probably won't be talking very much about the game itself, my guess is that they'll spend the whole 90 minutes talking about Tim Tebow and his comeback on Sunday. But they might be talking a little bit about this game, and maybe some of that discussion will be about the Jaguars and not the Ravens. But maybe the talking heads will devote five of those 90 minutes to the Jaguars.

We'll have plenty more on this game in this StoryStream. For more on the Jaguars head over to our Jacksonville blog Big Cat Country. For more information on Baltimore head on over to our Ravens blog Baltimore Beat Down.
