Justin Tucker | Texas Longhorns: Congratulations! Six FG’s, 61 yard FG to Win
By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor Silver and Blue Report & Hook ‘em Report
Justin Tucker made six field goals, including a franchise-record 61-yarder with 38 seconds left that lifted the Baltimore Ravens to an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Monday.
Justin Tucker’s powerful leg kicked the Super Bowl champions into playoff gear, which had major postseason implications.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh chose to let Tucker, former Texas Longhorn kicker, try the longest kick of his career by 5 yards, instead of going for fourth-and-8 from the Detroit 43.
Tucker stated, “If they send me out there, they have reason to. It’s because they think I can make the kick. I definitely felt like I got a lot of leg into it, but it jumped up so high I thought I might have gotten under it.”
Tucker also mentioned in a television interview right after the game that his six field goals also benefited his fantasy football team.
