Asked if the crowd's disapproval bothered him, Jones replied: "No, I like that type of [stuff]. I actually took it like another game. It really didn't bother me. I was humble. I wasn't all riled up. I was ready to play football, period."

Jones entered the game riding high after tying an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys last week.

Jones acknowledged there were some words exchanged with his former teammates.

"They know me," Jones said. "They were taking them big angles. They knew they weren't going to catch me if I get past their [butt]. There was a little trash-talking."

Osemele avoids serious injury

Osemele was certain he had broken his right ankle when he was carted off the field in the first half and brought to the locker room for further examination.

Osemele's right leg crumpled when several players hit him from behind in a pile. However, X-rays determined that it was just a sprained ankle and Osemele returned to play in the second half.

"I felt a pop in my knee and my ankle, and I was really worried about it," Osemele said. "I couldn't feel anything. I had so much adrenaline going. I lost so much strength. I definitely thought something was damaged.

"Nothing was broken. I got some [pain-killing] shots in me. Once the pain went away, I finished up the game. I was pretty surprised when the X-rays came back. It was a blessing."

While Osemele was sidelined, left tackle Michael Oher shifted over to the right side in place of the rookie second-round draft pick as former Pro Bowl blocker Bryant McKinnie stepped in at left tackle.

A Houston native, Osemele had several family members in the stands attending the game.

He was hoping to contact them before boarding the Ravens' private charter flight back to Baltimore.

"I'm sure they're worried," he said. "I haven't talked to them yet."

Harbaugh was impressed by Osemele going back in the game after appearing at first to have suffered a serious injury.

"He's a tough guy," Harbaugh said. "K.O.'s got a big heart. Seemed like he played pretty well even with that ankle."

Ngata played through pain

For the second consecutive game, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata had to grit his teeth and deal with a painful sprained right medial collateral ligament.

Unlike the Ravens' 31-29 win over the Cowboys where Ngata managed to record six tackles and a sack, the injury seemed to affect him more this time as he was held to one tackle.

"Time off is going to help, obviously," Harbaugh said. "It's going to help him heal up a little bit."
