THAT is why they play the game.

Only Monday Night.

The Baltimore Ravens had only one net yard passing in the first half, as the Jacksonville Jaguars held them to 146 yards of total offense.

The result?

Josh Scobee drilled four field goals, three of which came from 50+ yards, as the Jaguars shocked the world in beating the AFC North leading Baltimore Ravens.

Maurice Jones-Drew, despite four fumbles, added 105 yards and Jason Hill had four huge catches for 64 yards as the Jaguars defense held Ray Rice to 28 yards rushing.

It was an inspired effort by the Jaguars defense, who didn't allow a first down by Baltimore until the late third quarter. Jacksonville pressured and sacked Joe Flacco often, resulting in a a Ravens offense that seemed completely discombobulated throughout the game.

Jacksonville's victory marks the first win in the career of young Blaine Gabbert, who couldn't have picked a better time to change the tide than on national television.

Coach Jack Del Rio's hot seat, in the meantime, got a much-needed scoop of ice.

Del Rio's team was passionate throughout the contest, and out-hit the Ravens' vaunted defense throughout sixty minutes.

The Jaguars improved to 2-5, just two games back of first-place in the division.

Updated score: Jaguars shock the Ravens, 12-7 as defense allows only 146 total yards by Baltimore.
