Going into this game, Baltimore’s kicker Justin Tucker was perfect with all three of his field-goal attempts through two weeks of the 2021 NFL season. Tucker was drafted by the Ravens in 2012 and since then; he has made a huge impact on his team. Throughout his ten years in the league (including these last two weeks), he has attempted 324 field goals and has successfully put through 294 of them. The percentage of made field goals for Tucker is 90.7%! Another incredible statistic for Justin is the fact that he has scored 356 extra points out of 360 attempts. He has only missed four extra points throughout his entire career. The man is just great at what he does for a living.
The game between the Ravens and the Lions was a tight, hard-fought game until the clock hit zero. Detroit was up by one point in the fourth quarter with one minute and four seconds left on the clock. Baltimore’s star quarter Lamar Jackson led his team down the field to get close enough to make something happen. Folks in the stadium and at home watching the game as fans of the Lions were a bit nervous because there was a chance the Ravens could end up winning the game. Baltimore took advantage and surprised many. With only three seconds left on the clock, the Ravens decided to put their fate in the hands of their amazing kicker. Tucker did not look afraid at all for the moment to win the game. Justin goes for a 66-yard field goal which was good! He broke the NFL record of the longest field goal kick ever made!
Tucker is going into the Hall of Fame with how his career is unfolding and now with breaking this record; it just helped his resume! He can go down as the greatest of all time and he is not done yet.
