Ravens 10, Jets 9

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. —The Ravens starred in this version of Hard Knocks, punishing the Jets with plenty of them.

The Jets intrigued audiences in the preseason with their no-holds-barred, behind-the-scenes TV show, but the Ravens grabbed the spotlight Monday night with a 10-9 victory over New York. The Ravens allowed 176 yards and six first downs, keeping Rex Ryan's crew out of the end zone.

The new, $1.6 billion New Meadowlands Stadium rocked with J-E-T-S chants, then the Ravens rocked Ryan's defense to silence the crowd of 78,127.

"They beat us in every statistical category there is except turnovers," said Ryan, the former Ravens defensive coordinator.

And not even a 3-1 edge in that department could help the Jets.

"It became personal when the schedule came out," Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said. "We knew the tradition and the respect that Rex wanted to bring to the Jets. The bottom line is: Let's just play football. I tip my hat to my team."

Billy Cundiff's 25-yard field goal in the third quarter provided the winning points. Anquan Boldin, Baltimore's main offseason acquisition, had seven receptions for 110 yards. Tight end Todd Heap caught six passes from Joe Flacco for 72 yards.

Jets defensive tackle Kris Jenkins hurt his left knee in the first quarter and didn't return. His status is unclear.

Mccluster record: Chiefs rookie Dexter McCluster of Largo returned a punt a team-record 94 yards for a touchdown as host Kansas City beat the Chargers 21-14 in Monday's second game San Diego stalled inside the Chiefs 5 in the final minute.
