With time running out at the end of the fourth quarter the Ravens decided to send Justin Tucker out in order to seal what would be a priceless victory for their play-off hopes.Tucker came on to kick a personal record from 61-yards-out to give John Harbaugh’s side an 18-16 lead with 38 seconds left on the clock and record his 33rd consecutive successful kick.The 24-year-old was responsible for putting all of the visiting side’s points on the board with six Baltimore field goals with Joe Flacco let down by poor pass protection throughout the game.

After the game Tucker joked about his kicking ability: “My fantasy team is benefiting from it,

“Fantasy¬†owners around the world, I hope you appreciate the points,” he continued.

His previous personal record was recorded in 2012 when he scored from 56-yards out.

Following a war of words with Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson it was University of Florida graduate Matt Elam who secured the win for the Ravens as he intercepted a wild pass from Matthew Stafford to claim a turnover in the dying moments of the game.

Matt Elam had labelled Megatron [Calvin Johnson] ‘old’ in the build up to the game and it seems as though the tough words had an effect on the receiver with Johnson unable to get¬† a real hold on the game.

The win takes the Ravens to 8-6 with the side having won their last four games. The Patriots travel to Baltimore on Sunday in a game where victory would clinch their fifth straight AFC East title.
