Over the past three seasons against the Steelers, Jones has two return touchdowns. And there easily could have been a third had Tomlin not stepped onto the playing field and altered Jones' path during a kick return at M&T Bank Stadium last season.
Jones had one of the Ravens' lone highlights in the team's 43-23 loss to the Steelers at Heinz Field in November, returning a kickoff a careerlong-tying 108 yards for a touchdown. In the Ravens' last victory in Pittsburgh, on Nov. 18, 2012, Jones accounted for the team's lone touchdown with a 63-yard punt return touchdown.
"Honestly, I don't care where I play. I just play my role," Jones said. "But it is fun. It's a rival. I like playing down there, I like the competition. No matter what, I'm going to play my role and whenever I have a chance to make a play, I'm going to try and make a play."
Against the Steelers, Jones has averaged 36 yards on his 14 kickoff returns and just more than 13 yards on his 14 punt returns. He said that, more than any other team, the Steelers use different kicks to try to neutralize him, which Jones takes as a sign of respect.
"You can't be mad at them," he said. "It's hard to get respect in this league."
