Baltimore Ravens Jerseys coach Hue Jackson said Baltimore Ravens inside linebacker C.J. Mosley “might be one of the best players in football” during his Monday press conference.
When the NFL teams squared off in Week 2 of the 2016 season, two of Mosley’s six tackles were made behind the line of scrimmage and the former Alabama All-American snatched away the Browns’ chance to win a game that they seemed to have won.
On Sept. 18, Cleveland grabbed a 20-0 lead over the Ravens in the first quarter, only to lose 25-20.
The Browns had a first down on the Baltimore 30-yard line trailing by five in the final minute when quarterback Josh McCown tried to get the ball to wide receiver Terrelle Pryor running for the end zone. But Mosley made a leaping interception, coming down with the ball at the 1-yard line with 13 seconds to play to preserve the Ravens’ victory.
“Why do I say that?” Jackson said when asked to elaborate on his assessment of Mosley. “Because he makes so many standout plays. He is always around the ball. He is making plays on backs, he is making plays on receivers, he is getting his hands on balls and he is chasing balls down. He is just a tremendous football player.”
Jackson’s Browns and Mosley’s Ravens Cheap nfl Jerseys face off again on Thursday night, with the AFC North rivals kicking off Week 10 of the NFL’s 2016 season.
Mosley missed two games with a hamstring injury, but the former Theodore High School star returned last week to help Baltimore beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-14. After the Ravens lost both games that Mosley missed, the victory over Pittsburgh lifted Baltimore’s record to 4-4 and into a tie with the Steelers for the top spot in the AFC North.
With Mosley on the field this season, the Ravens have given up an average of 17 points and 268.5 yards per game. In the two games without Mosley, Baltimore yielded an average of 25.5 points and 389.5 yards per game in losing to the New York Giants and New York Jets.
“C.J. brings just a calm demeanor Cheap jersey wholesale calling plays out,” Baltimore safety Eric Weddle said of having the Ravens’ defensive leader back on the field during Sunday’s victory.

Cleveland will try to avoid the first 0-10 start in the franchise’s history on Thursday night. The Browns haven’t won a game since Dec. 13, when they downed the San Francisco 49ers 24-10 – and that includes the preseason, during which they lost all four of their games.
But Cleveland’s season is not that far from the Ravens’. In addition to the five-point loss to Baltimore, the Browns have losses by two and three points and one defeat in overtime. The largest final margin in a Ravens’ game this season is eight points, and Baltimore’s four victories have come by a total of 20 points.
