The 66-yard kick surpassed the earlier file for the longest field goal set by Matt Prater in 2013 with a 64-yard conversion.
Tucker’s kick sparked wild celebrations from Ravens gamers, as he was mobbed by his teammates.
In pre-game warm-ups, Tucker was unsuccessful from 65 yards. But when it got here right down to crunch time, he defined that he discovered somewhat “divinely impressed one thing” to make the game-clinching kick.
“When you are that distant, there is a degree of it’s important to abandon a specific amount of your approach … to achieve somewhat energy and use the adrenaline and the sensation of the second to get the ball to go. I hop into it just a bit extra aggressively.”
It capped off a outstanding remaining sequence for the Ravens, after quarterback Lamar Jackson transformed a fourth-and-19 with a 36-yard cross to Sammy Watkins with lower than a minute left and no timeouts remaining to arrange Tucker’s kick.
Lions followers have to be sick of the sight of Tucker by now, as it has been eight years since he hit a 61-yard game-winning field goal to beat the identical workforce.
Tucker’s NFL-record 66-yard field goal on Sunday marks the second time in Lions historical past that they’ve misplaced a sport on a record-setting field goal. On November 8, 1970, New Orleans Saints kicker Tom Dempsey made a then-record 63-yarder to beat the Lions in New Orleans.
The file kick sealed an necessary victory for the Ravens, as they remained tied with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns on the high of the AFC North with a file of 2-1.
