The Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t allow the Baltimore Ravens a first down until the 5:26 mark in the third quarter, and Josh Scobee connected on four field goals for a 12-7 win on Monday Night Football.

The game had a mixture of stout defenses, inept offenses and bad play from both teams.

Baltimore drops to 4-2 on the season.

The Jaguars now 2-5, set a franchise record by allowing only 16 yards in the first half, including  1 yard passing by Joe Flacco, who was under constant pressure all night long.

The Ravens didn’t score a TD until 2:00 minutes were left in the game.
