BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens has tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return.

Jones' return came in the third quarter of Baltimore's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He took the kick in the middle of the end zone, veered to his right around the 10-yard line, broke an arm tackle by Andre Holmes and outdistanced kicker Dan Bailey down the right sideline.

The return tied the mark set by Ellis Hobbs of New England against the New York Jets in 2007 and matched in 2011 by Randall Cobb of Green Bay against New Orleans.

The Ravens' record for a kickoff return was 103 yards by David Reed against Houston in 2010.
