JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As Maurice Jones-Drew walked off the field, his white pants had a mix of grass, dirt and blood stains. They might be worth keeping that way. After all, few players have had that much success against that defence. Jones-Drew ran for 105 yards, Josh Scobee kicked four field goals and the Jacksonville Jaguars snapped a five-game slide with a 12-7 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. "It finally feels good to win one after all those losses," said Jones-Drew, the first player to run for 100 yards against the Ravens since last December. "It was nice to show the world what were about. We beat a very good team." Stepping into the national spotlight for a few hours, the Jaguars used their best defensive effort in seven years to slow down Ray Rice, Joe Flacco and Co. "Youve got to give them credit. They played like it was their Super Bowl," Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin said. The victory could be a turning point for a young team trying to create confidence after losing eight of its previous nine games. Instead of talk about coach Jack Del Rios job security, the Jaguars (2-5) got back in the mix in the wide-open AFC South. "We knew this was an opportunity to right things and gain a little respect," Del Rio said. They relied on Jones-Drew and the defence to get it done. Jacksonville didnt allow a first down until the 5:26 mark of the third quarter, a mix of stout defence and inept offence. Flacco finally got the Ravens (4-2) on the scoreboard with a little more than two minutes remaining. He capped a 90-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to Boldin. The Ravens failed to recover an onside kick when the ball bounced inches short of going the required 10 yards. Scobee followed with his third field goal of at least 50 yards, tying an NFL record held by many. "As long as Im getting those opportunities, I will gladly take them," Scobee said. "Given that we havent scored a lot of points this season, I know that every time Im out there its very important." Baltimore had a final possession, but in fitting fashion, Jacksonvilles defence came up big. Drew Coleman stepped in front of Ed Dickson and intercepted Flaccos final pass. The Ravens finished with 146 total yards, the fewest yards the Jaguars have allowed since 2004. "They basically beat us with their defence," coach John Harbaugh said. "I dont think it was any one thing. It was a lack of execution. Its almost as bad as you can play on offence." The Jaguars set a franchise record by allowing only 16 yards in the first half, including one yard passing by Flacco, who was under relentless pressure for much of the night. "We need to make sure when were not on our A game, were not this," said Flacco, who completed 21 of 38 passes for 137 yards. Baltimore finally got a first down on its 28th play of the game when Rice broke off a 12-yard run. That was only the second play longer than 10 yards for the Ravens. "We were confident about this game," Jaguars defensive tackle Terrance Knighton said. "We knew we had to outplay them. The difference between this and the other weeks is that we started fast. Our defence is capable of that. Thats why we hold ourselves to a high standard. We just needed to taste victory. Now that we have, were going to keep it rolling." The teams combined to go 0 of 16 on third-down conversions in the opening half. The Jaguars began the third quarter with six first downs, only for the Ravens defence to stiffen after yet another mistake. The Ravens stopped Jacksonville, but Brendon Ayanbadejo was called for a personal foul and ejected from the game when he punched Guy Whimper in the facemask after the play. That gave the Jaguars first-and-goal from the 3, but Blaine Gabbert failed to complete two passes in the end zone and Scobee kicked a 22-yard field goal. An earlier field goal was set up by another Baltimore blunder. After Gabbert completed passes of 24 and 11 yards to the Ravens 38, Gabbert was sacked on third-and-8 at the 40. The Jaguars chose to punt, but Paul Kruger was penalized for running into the kicker. The 5-yard penalty put Scobee in field goal range, putting the Jaguars up 6-0 with a 54-yard kick. Scobee, who extended his franchise record with a field goal for the 15th straight game, kicked two 54-yarders. Jacksonville needed every yard and point it could muster. The NFLs worst offence put the game on Jones-Drews shoulders. He carried 30 times, most of them right into the middle of Baltimores revered defence. "We just grinded them," Gabbert said. "Mojos a beast back there." NOTES: Ravens S Ed Reed had his shoulder popped back into place in the fourth quarter, but returned after a few plays off. ...

LOS ANGELES -- Stephen Curry and reserve Carl Landry had 23 points apiece and the Golden State Warriors held off the pesky Los Angeles Clippers for a wire-to-wire 114-110 victory on Saturday night. Klay Thompson had 17 points and eight rebounds for Golden State, which handed the Clippers their first loss of the season. The narrow win came after the Warriors learned reserve small forward Brandon Rush, their best perimeter defender, will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during the first quarter of Friday nights 104-94 home loss to Memphis. Rookie Festus Ezeli started at centre for Golden State and had eight points and five rebounds in place of Andrew Bogut, who played in the first two games after returning from surgery on his left ankle. Coach Mark Jacksons plan early in the season is to rest Bogut in the second of back-to-back games while he gradually gets himself back into game shape. Chris Paul scored 27 points for Los Angeles, going 19 for 20 at the free-throw line. Reserve Jamal Crawford also had 27 points, and Blake Griffin finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds. The Clippers, coming off victories against Memphis and the Lakers, were trying to go 3-0 for only the fifth time in the franchises 43-year history and first since 2007. Los Angeles missed its first five shots and quickly fell behind by nine points. The Warriors extended their lead to as many as 14 with about 4 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter, and the Clippers cut the deficit to 57-53 by halftime. But they never got the lead despite three 3-pointeers in a 1:33 span of the third quarter by Caron Butler that kept them within striking distance.dddddddddddd. The third one came with 2:27 left in the third, narrowing the gap to 79-77. But the Warriors responded with six straight points, then began the fourth quarter with a 12-4 run to open a 97-83 lead with 7:46 remaining. The Clippers fought back with a 16-4 run, capped by a three-point play by Crawford and a pair of free throws by Paul that sliced Golden States lead to 101-99 with 3:55 left. The Clippers tied it two more times before the Warriors went back in front on a jumper by Curry with 1:25 to go. Griffin missed a layup in heavy traffic at the other end, but the Clippers got the ball back on a shot-clock violation. Paul had made 19 consecutive free throws from the start of the game before missing his next one, keeping the Clippers behind 109-108 with 42.9 seconds left. Jarrett Jack made two from the line for the Warriors and Paul made it a one-point game again on a layup. Curry made one of two for a 112-110 Warriors lead, and the Clippers took a timeout with 21.4 seconds on the clock. But a driving layup by Paul was negated by his offensive foul against Curry, whose two free throws sealed the verdict with 6.9 seconds left. NOTES: Griffin, who came in with a free-throw percentage of 59.3 in 150 NBA games, was 11 for 16 from the line -- the 10th time he has made 10 or more. ... The Clippers are the only franchise the Warriors have a winning road record against (50-45). ... Crawford was the first Clipper to score 20 or more points off the bench since Mo Williams did it last January. ' ' '
