How could we forget?
Jimmy Smith recovered it at the 2 for the Ravens. And Baltimore went on to score on a 1-yard pass from Joe Flacco to tight end Kris Wilson, killing Houston's early momentum and helping seal a soul-crushing 20-13 loss.

As you can imagine, Texans fans were extremely understanding of Jones' gaffe.
Well, OK, at least they didn't blow up his house.
"I had my jersey burned," he recalled. "People sent in death threats. I got released."
Then, in the ultimate irony, the Ravens came calling. He signed a two-year, $7-million deal last May and fit in right away with his new team. And he played his butt off.
He had a Pro Bowl season as a kick returner. And he'll be remembered forever in this town for the "Miracle at Mile High" or whatever you want to call it, the 70-yard bomb from Joe Flacco that he caught with 31 seconds left in regulation for the game-tying touchdown in the Ravens' 38-35 double-overtime playoff win over Denver.
Now maybe he gets to win over "DWTS" fans the way he won over Ravens fans.
Don King was right. Only in America.
