The Ravens dynamic return man has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November, the first time he’s won the award.
Jones was selected after two special teams touchdowns in November – a 63-yard punt return in Week 11 against the Steelers and a 105-yard kickoff return in Week 10 against the Raiders. He was the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after both of those touchdowns.
The Ravens offseason acquisition is having a historic season. He is the only player in NFL history to record two kickoff returns of at least 105 yards. He’s also the first Ravens player to ever post multiple kickoff returns for touchdown in a season.
“[The fans] get quiet when I get the kick. I promise I can hear by heartbeat,” Jones said this week on Ravens One-on-One. “I catch and run, then all I hear is, ‘Wahh!’ and I’m gone. It’s over. That’s it.”
Jones has also become a fan favorite in Baltimore thanks to his unique touchdown dances that he’s unveiled.
“When I got here with the Ravens they let me be myself and I’ve just been enjoying the game,” Jones said.
Jones is currently second in the NFL in average yards per kickoff return (35.8). Jones ranks seventh in the NFL with an average of 11 yards per punt return.
He is also currently leading the league in Pro Bowl voting at kick returner, and fans can vote for him online through Dec. 17.
