The Pressure Is On Ravens' Arthur Jones

Sure the Baltimore Ravens want to beat the New England Patriots tomorrow night in what could be labeled a revenge re-match for their devastating AFC Championship Game loss last January. But there will also be a "game-within-the-game" during the game itself.

Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones will be trying to be the only member of the Jones family to say they won an NFL game this weekend, as his younger brother, Chandler Jones, is a rookie defensive end for the Patriots. Chandler was a first-round pick in April's NFL Draft, coming out of Syracuse, Arthur's Alma-mater as well.

A story on Boston.com details that not only are the two Jones NFL boys battling each other Sunday night, their other brother, Jon "Bones" Jones, will be defending his UFC Light-Heavyweight title on Saturday evening. Reportedly, after the fight, Bones and his parents will hop a flight from Toronto, where the fight is taking place, to Baltimore in time for the Sunday night game.

Arthur desperately wants bragging rights, so when you cheer for the Ravens tomorrow night, remember that a family's future dinnertime trash-talking upper hand, at least for one game, is on the line.
