10:06 PM ET 02.03 | Just when the San Francisco 49ers were set to get on track to combat the Baltimore Ravens at the start of the third quarter, Ravens wide receiver/return specialist Jacoby Jones caught the kickoff kick deep in the end zone and took off up the middle for a Super Bowl record setting 109-yard touchdown return. After his score, as he was pretty much untouched, Jones honored linebacker Ray Lewis as he performed "the squirrel." Jones signed with the Ravens during the offseason and he delivered on what he was signed for. Jones' record-setting score was his second touchdown of the evening as he caught a 56-yard touchdown pass midway through the second quarter to give the Ravens an 18-point lead.

The Niners defense gave up almost 30 Points Per Game during the playoffs, that tells me when they play good teams their defense is about average! The Ravens gave up 22 points a game their defense was a little better! This tells me what both teams will be drafting next year, defense debth!

A huge play by a great athlete. You have to tip your hat and give the win to the Ravens. This was about more than Ray Lewis.

It looked like he was 9 yards deep in the end zone when he caught the ball to me. I saw no reason to change the return to 108 yards.

Or should be.

They should grant him the yards he gained after crossing the goal line.

That's what I thought too. He looked really close to the back of the end zone.

The field is only 100 yards long. Anything longer is impossible.

True. I always find it interesting that they'll count the extra yardage from starting in the back of a team's own endzone...

But they won't give the extra yardage if a receiver catches a touchdown at the back of the opposing team's end zone.

That may or may not be true, but we do know this, The Families O's the Departed settled for Money Instead of Justice. This tells us 2 things either Ray was Guilty and he paid them off or Ray was innocent and they took the money up front rather than go to trail, either way it was their choice!

That's what it always used to be. Now they seem to start from where they catch the ball in the end zone on kickoffs. Don't know why they changed it.

I'm no Ravens or Ray fan but unless you were an eye witness, give it a rest already!

Too bad Jones didn't play as well last season for the Texans.

Can you provide proof that he did not murder them? What? No??So I will continue to express my opinion and you are welcome to yours, regardless of how stupid IT is

No one has to prove they didn't do something. The prosicuter has to prove you did it. They did not, drop it
