This week on “Dancing With The Stars,” the Ravens’ Jacoby Jones could have channeled a bit of the Giants’ Victor Cruz. Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff danced salsa, but they went way beyond what Cruz does in the end zone after scoring a touchdown.

Jones seemed to really have the steps down. For once, we didn’t hear the judges prattle on about how the Ravens wide receiver/kick returner wasn’t pointing his toes. Jones spent a good bit of the performance lifting Smirnoff in one way or another. There was an odd moment toward the end when it looked like Jones was going to send himself flying over Smirnoff, like he did last week, but instead his leap was used as a launch into a kind of a lift.

They got a high score, 27 of 30, from the judges, putting them again in fourth place.

The usually hypercritical judge Len Goodman said the dance included too many lifts. His comments drew a stare-down from Jones’ mom in the audience. But the strangest comment came from judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who told Jones: “It’s like you could fart the salsa.”

I think that’s a compliment.
