The Baltimore Ravens beat the New York Jets in an ugly but decisive manner. It was a defensive struggle, where running the ball was difficult and field position was everything. The Ravens pulled out an important victory over another AFC playoff contender, but there is still a long way to go before Baltimore can confidently think about the playoffs.
For the majority of the 60 minutes, the game was about tricks and kicks. Both teams used trick plays and the wildcat formation, and the kickers were responsible for most of the scoring.
The Ravens defense was excellent, confusing Geno Smith, forcing turnovers and giving the offense phenomenal field position. The offense, however, struggled to capitalize and didn't score a touchdown until the very end of the third quarter.
With eyes firmly locked on the upcoming Thanksgiving night battle against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers, here are things you should take away from Baltimore's ugly win over the Jets.
