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.
How will the Greatest Game Ever effect Flacco’s future?
I’m 48 years old and go back to watching the Baltimore Colts. Yes, the Blue and White used to provide plenty of exciting memories for yours truly.
One of the few constants in the Ravens inconsistent 2012 season has been rookie place-kicker Justin Tucker.
The Ravens have been criticized all year with their inability to move the ball consistently on the road. Matching up against San Diego, many wondered if they could get the job done. But on Sunday, the Ravens proved they could get the job done as they won their third consecutive game on the road.
The Baltimore Ravens beat the San Diego Chargers 16-13 in overtime.
The Ravens are in first place in the AFC North, and while no team wants to enter the bye week after suffering a loss, the Ravens have a lot to be happy about. A few players have stepped up and look to make a strong impact the rest of the season. But there are also other players who leave a lot to be desired.
Justin Tucker vividly remembers every detail of his first field goal try in the NFL.
The big story heading into the 2012 season centered on Justin Tucker. A relatively unknown kicker would replace the man who missed the biggest kick in Ravens history. But from what we’ve seen so far, the rookie kicker isn’t playing like a rookie at all.
Harbaugh told reporters all week that this would be a close physical game. That’s exactly what fans got. Flacco would lead the Ravens to victory once again as Baltimore continues to dominate the AFC North.
Joe Flacco outplayed Brady for the second straight time as Ravens defeat Patriots 31-30. Torrey Smith would score two touchdowns hours after hearing of his brother’s accident. And Justin Tucker would hit the game winning field goal as time expired.
Head Coach John Harbaugh is very confident with Tucker and indicated the decision was based on s what they think is best for their team.
