Joe McKnight Touchdown: Jets RB Returns Kick 107 Yards Against Ravens (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Not much went right for the New York Jets on Sunday night. The Baltimore Ravens defense smothered quarterback Mark Sanchez, forcing four turnovers and returning three of them for touchdowns (a franchise record). Although the Ravens offense didn't do much either, most fans will remember Baltimore's 34-17 win as a very ugly victory. Only six of their 34 points came from an offensive touchdown and both quarterbacks threw for a combined 21-for-65, two interceptions and four lost fumbles. That's how brutal the game was... and it got bad right from the start.

After the Ravens' first fumble return for a touchdown, the Jets answered quickly with an incredible kick return from running back Joe McKnight. The former USC star took the ball out from seven yards into his end zone and by the time he reached the 30-yard line, he only had one defender to beat, the kicker. Two Ravens defenders eventually caught up to him, but it was too late. The return tied the game at seven with 11:44 left in the first quarter!
