Baltimore Ravens' Derrick Mason escapes the attention of the New York Jets defence to take a catch during his side's 10-9 victory over the Jets at their newly-refurbished Meadowlands home on Monday night.

In Monday night's other game, the Kansas City Chiefs shocked their AFC West rivals, the San Diego Chargers, 21-14.
