BALTIMORE - Approaching the final two weeks of the regular season, the Baltimore Ravens have no interest in exploring potential playoff scenarios or hypothetical situations. Vinny Curry Buccaneers Jersey .We have to win out, rookie linebacker C.J. Mosley said. Everybody talks about who has to win and who has to lose, but we have to win the next two games to give ourselves a chance.The Ravens are in this position because they survived a shaky performance Sunday in a 20-12 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.Baltimore (9-5) came in as a two-touchdown favourite against the Jaguars (2-12), but trailed at halftime and didnt clinch the victory until Blake Bortles threw an interception in the final minute.Obviously, it didnt go as smoothly as we would have liked, but thats the way it is, said tight end Owen Daniels, who scored Baltimores lone offensive touchdown. They pulled out all the stops and we did just enough to win.It was hardly an artistic success, but the Ravens were happy to take another awkward step toward a potential playoff berth. They remain a half-game out of first place in the AFC North and are tied with Pittsburgh for one of the conferences two wild-card slots.There are things we need to clean up, get better at, wide receiver Steve Smith said. But you cant upset yourself over that, especially with a win.The Jaguars played well on defence, but Bortles was sacked eight times. Jacksonville never reached the end zone and was held scoreless after halftime.It was frustrating, Jaguars running back Tony Gerhart said. We moved the ball well in the first half and crossed the 50, but then had to settle for field goals. Against a good team like that, if you score a couple touchdowns there, you put them in a bind.Some things to know about Ravens-Jaguars game:DAS BOOT: Bortles shuffled into his postgame press conference with a walking boot on his right foot. He sprained the foot during the game, but the injury wasnt serious enough for him to yield to backup Chad Henne.With the Jaguars on a short week before hosting the injury-depleted Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, there might be some concern that Bortles might not be fit enough to play.He dismissed the notion.Its fine, Bortles insisted. Just being precautionary. Look forward to getting back (home) tonight and getting back after it.BIG BLOCK: The Ravens block of Jacksonvilles first punt gave them the early lead and set the tone for the day.After Darian Stewart blasted up the middle and blocked Bryan Angers kick, Kamar Aiken picked the ball up at the 11 and carried it in.It was a call just for me and (Anthony) Levine, and whichever one of us get there first, it was just, make the play, Stewart said.After the block, Aiken had it easy.When I saw Stew pop open, I was just like Hes going to get this one, Aiken said. And when he got it, and Im thinking, This is a layup.MORAL OF THE STORY: A week after letting a 13-10 halftime lead slip away at home against Houston, the Jaguars couldnt hold on to a 12-10 advantage at intermission against Baltimore.Jacksonville made things difficult for the Ravens, but coming close wasnt good enough.I told our team were not into moral victories, coach Gus Bradley said. Were into victories. Thats what were after, and weve got to figure this out.ROOKIE STEPS UP: Starting for the second week in a row in place of suspended defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, Ravens rookie Timmy Jernigan helped make Bortles life miserable with two sacks.We were doing some things in there, some stunting. I was able to beat my guy a couple of times up the gut and make the play, said Jernigan, a second-round draft pick from Florida State.Jernigan said he tried to emulate teammates Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs.When you see Elvis Dumervil setting records and Terrell Suggs making sacks all over the place, it makes you want to elevate your game to the next level. he said.HELLO AGAIN: Ravens running back Justin Forsett ran for 48 yards on 16 carries against the team he played for last season.Forsett said there was plenty of banter between himself and his former friends — all of it good.It was all encouragement, he said. It was all love.Forsett has 1,128 yards on the ground this season. He had 31 yards on six carries with Jacksonville in 2013.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Ronald Jones II Jersey .

Jays legends Jimmy Key and Ernie Whitt, members of playoff and World Series-winning teams of the past, will be on hand for the festivities to look back at what was the beginning of the Jays halcyon years. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills centre Eric Wood was not at all surprised hearing team president Russ Brandon raise concerns whether Buffalo loses a competitive edge playing annual home games in Toronto. Brandon first questioned the benefits of the "Bills In Toronto" series during a meeting with Wood and fellow team captains about a month ago. "He knew that a lot of players have expressed some harsh feelings toward Toronto," Wood said Wednesday. "And he basically told us as captains that he was going to do whatever it takes around here to win. And thats something he wanted to address." Brandon went public with his concerns during his weekly show on Buffalos WGR-AM earlier in the day. While noting the Bills games north of the border have boosted the small-market franchises revenues, Brandon added that they havent paid off in wins. Following a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta on Sunday, Buffalo dropped to 1-5 in Toronto since the series was established in 2008. "It has been a challenged market there, and certainly has not translated into enough wins for us there," Brandon said. "Nothing comes above winning. When I took over the reins on Jan. 1, I said that was the No. 1 focus, and that will be the No. 1 focus. Thats one of the reasons that this will be reviewed in a grand manner." Brandon stopped short of saying the Bills would consider or be allowed to opt out of the four remaining years of the deal, which they renewed in January with Toronto-based Rogers Communications. "Im going to look at everything. Ill just leave it at that," Brandon said, before being asked a second time whether the Bills can opt out. "My focus in this organization is simple, to put ourselves in the position to win championships and sustain success. Period. Nothing comes above that." Wood has been among several players who have criticized the series. He called the games in Toronto "a joke" last year following a 50-17 loss to Seattle. Last week, receiver Stevie Johnson questioned whether the warm-weather Falcons "fixed" the schedule in getting to play indoors at the domed Rogers Centre, and avoid the wintry conditions -- and traditionally more raucous environment -- at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchaard Park, N. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey. Y. The loss put a big dent in the Bills chances of staying in the AFC playoff race. At 4-8, Buffalo plays three of its final four on the road, beginning with a trip to Tampa Bay (3-9) on Sunday. Buffalo is in jeopardy of extending the NFLs longest active post-season drought to 14 seasons. And the Bills will go a ninth straight year without a winning record. The Bills are 0-4 at Toronto during December. Their lone win came on Oct. 30, 2011, when they defeated Washington 23-0. Rogers officials declined to comment on Brandons statements. So did NFL vice-president Christopher Parsons, who heads the leagues international offices. The Bills made the decision to play games in Toronto, about a 2-hour drive from Buffalo, in a bid to expand their fan base and generate additional revenue from Canadas largest city and financial capital. A lack of home-team support and poor attendance remain issues since the series started. The announced crowd of 38,969 on Sunday was by far the smallest of the series, and well short of the stadiums NFL capacity of 46,470, not including suites. Rogers did announce the first four regular-season games had been sellouts before later acknowledging the totals included thousands of free tickets. The games also attract a larger than usual contingent of visiting team supporters. Several Atlanta players were pleasantly surprised to see a notable number of fans wearing Falcons jerseys in the stands on Sunday. "The crazy part is we had a lot of support here," Falcons safety William Moore said. "It didnt feel like we were in Canada." The series has generated revenue and lured more southern Ontario fans back to Buffalo. The Bills estimate Canadians now make up about 15 per cent of their season ticket base. That rivals the number of season ticket holders the Bills get from nearby Rochester. As part of the initial five-year deal, Rogers agreed to pay $78 million to essentially lease eight Bills home games: five regular season and three preseason. The final preseason game was eventually dropped because of scheduling difficulties. In exchange, the Bills earned more than double what they usually generated from hosting games in Buffalo. The value of the most recent deal has not been revealed.
