The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Baltimore Ravens on a untimed down with a game winning field goal from Jason Meyers. The Ravens were flagged for a penalty when their defensive lineman grabbed a Jaguars offensive lineman's facemask as time expired, giving the Jaguars one last shot to win the game. Upon further review, one of the Jaguars offensive lineman jumped early and should have been called for a false start, a mistake the league later admitted.
The Ravens haven't forgotten an ugly game they probably should have won.
"You know, I don't really ever forget that game. It doesn't have to be spurred," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said on a conference call when asked about last season's loss. "That's always been kind of on my mind. It was a great football game, a tough loss for us. They deserve credit. They found a way to win. That was a real tough loss for us."
In last season's 22-20 win, the Jaguars were out gained by a depleted Ravens team that was without players like Steve Smith and Terrell Suggs, as well as a handful of other injuries. It was also the game in which quarterback Joe Flacco lost despite throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns to guys like Crockett Gilmore and Maxx Williams. The Jaguars were given life thanks to a pair of interceptions by Davon House, but the Jaguars were trailing 14-10 at half time.
Sunday's game is critical for the Jaguars season, as falling 0-3 will for all intents and purposes put a wrap on any playoff hopes that still remained. You can be sure Baltimore is coming in with the mindset of righting last season's loss against a Jaguars team who appears to be in a free fall.
