Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones' 108-yard kick return in Sunday's fourth quarter was the biggest play the former Pro Bowl selection has made during a frustrating season.

The late touchdown, Jones' first of the season, didn't change the outcome of the 43-23 loss, as it only cut the Steelers' lead down to 29-17. But it did show a spark from Jones, who has caught only four passes for 50 yards this season and muffed two punts.

"I had 10 guys blocking for me, so I had to trust and stay with it and it hit," Jones said. "It was just a play we worked on all week in practice. We had chemistry. We hit the timing right. I had faith in the guys in front of me blocking and they had faith in me."

The Ravens (5-4) dropped to last place in the AFC North division with the defeat.

"Nowhere but up," Jones said when asked how he believes the team will react to the loss. "You keep your heads up and go back to practice Tuesday and correct our mistakes.

"First thing we need to do is get on this bus and go back to Baltimore and then get in the film room and correct our mistakes, and we've got nowhere to go but up to the top."
