OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — If the Baltimore Ravens need a field goal in the waning seconds of the AFC championship game, they’ll call upon a rookie with little regard for history.

Justin Tucker knows all about the 32-yard kick that Billy Cundiff missed last January against the New England Patriots, costing the Ravens a chance to force overtime with a trip to the Super Bowl hanging in the balance.

Tucker insists that won’t matter in the rematch Sunday night.

Tucker, who kicked a 47-yard field goal in the second overtime of last week’s game against Denver, says of Cundiff’s miss: “What’s in the past is in the past. … That’s all null and void now.”

After beating out Cundiff for the job in training camp, Tucker has gone 31 for 34 on field-goal tries.
