The struggles of Jacoby Jones continued in Week 7. In the second quarter of this game, he muffed a punt and turned the ball over to the Falcons. He has done this on a number of occasions this season, and something has to be done about it.

Justin Tucker did his job, hitting both of his attempted field goals. Sam Koch continued his solid play, pinning the Falcons inside the 20-yard-line twice.

One piece of bad news did come out of this game as it pertains to the special teams. Fifth-year long-snapper Morgan Cox went down in the fourth quarter of this game. He was evaluated, and it was revealed that he suffered a torn ACL and is done for the season. I understand that snappers shouldn’t have such a large impact on a team, but lets see if the Ravens end up losing any games on a bad snap this season.

Grade: C+
