WR Jacoby Jones - Baltimore Ravens
|6-2, 210||Born: 7-11-1984||College: Lane||Drafted: Round 3|
Jacoby Jones might have been in the running for a second Pro Bowl appearance as a returner had he not lost four games to injury in 2013.
Jones had a shaky hold on the job due to miscues, but continues to see opportunities.
He is listed as probable on this week's official injury report.

Week 16: at Houston Texans
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Joe Flacco hasn't had to throw the ball much in order to win games of late - last week, the Ravens got a blocked punt return for a TD to open the game (Flacco threw 20/30 for 221 yards, one TD and zero interceptions, with zero sacks taken vs. Jacksonville), while two weeks ago they posted 31/183/2 rushing as a team at Miami (Flacco owned 7/16/1 rushing to go with his 25/33 for 269 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -5 yards). The good news for Flacco is that Torrey Smith's balky knee (he didn't catch a ball in Week 14 and was used as a decoy) is in better shape and Smith managed 2/16/0 receiving out of three targets vs. Jacksonville, while Marlon Brown (five targets for 5/66/0), Owen Daniels (nine for 4/62/1) and Steve Smith (five for 5/37/0) all saw a good bit of action despite the restricted number of TD passes during Week 15. We'll see if the Ravens open things up a bit more for Flacco and company against Houston. Houston's pass D is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 257.1 net yards allowed per game, with 25 passing scores given up to date vs. 17 interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 31 sacks (tied for 22nd) generated. Last week, Indianapolis was held to a surprisingly stingy 18/34 for 168 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown (with two sacks taken for -19 yards), while Jacksonville was in the same neighborhood two games ago (20/40 for 188 net yards, one TD and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -17 yards). Of late, the Texans' pass D is much stronger than their season average would indicate. This looks like a neutral matchup for the visiting Ravens.
