OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- For every time someone's seen the clip of Jacoby Jones getting behind two Broncos defenders, catching a Joe Flacco deep ball and running it in for the score that forced overtime in the Ravens miraculous win last week, Jones has been asked why he didn't break out into his curiously intricate dance routine afterward.

It seemed like the perfect time for it.

He explained why.

"Joe made the throw -- heck of a throw at that -- I made the catch," Jones said. "And I know everyone was expecting me to dance, but that's just like, 'Oh, thank god.'

The more impressive part, he said, was Flacco's throw. He said Flacco has one of the best arms in the league.

"I like to call him Smokin' Joe," Jones said. "He's got a gun on him. For however deep he wants to throw it, whatever touch he's got, it be beautiful."
