The Jaguars pulled off a surprise victory against the Ravens, winning an ugly game on the leg of their kicker, Josh Scobee.

The Jacksonville Jaguars surprised the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football in a game that provided a few interesting moments and fewer instances of actual, good football.

Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for 105 yards on 30 carries, but he also fumbled the ball three times, losing one on the Ravens goal line. The Jaguars got all their points from the leg of kicker Josh Scobee.

Meanwhile, the Ravens drop a surprising outing despite a typically strong effort from their defense. Much blame rests on Joe Flacco, who did nothing early and finished with just 147 yards passing.

Let's hand out some superlatives:

• Offensive Player of the Game:  No way around it, Josh Scobee was the hero. The kicker hit all four of his attempts, including three (!) from outside of 50 yards. The Jags scored on two drives in which they failed to move the ball more than five yards. That's thanks to good field position and the leg of their kicker.

• Defensive Player of the Game: The best defender was the football itself, which squirted out of the hands of running backs on both sides. Fumbles ruled the first half in this sloppy contest.

• GIF of the Game: Joe Flacco produced the GIF of the game when he nearly ran out of the back of the end zone. Watch the GIF below and get the full context from our Monday Night Football StoryStream.

With the win, the Jags improve to 2-5. The Ravens drop to 4-2 and fall a half game behind the Steelers in the AFC North.
