Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Tucker kicked a 61-yard field goal
with 38 seconds left as the Baltimore Ravens took a huge 18-16 victory over
the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Monday.
Tucker kicked six field goals (29, 24, 32, 49, 53, 61) with his last one
helping the Ravens (8-6) win their fourth straight game and move just one game
back of the Cincinnati Bengals for first place in the AFC North.
In addition, Baltimore sits locked in the second wild-card spot in the AFC as
the team is tied with Miami, but the Ravens hold the tiebreaker after beating
the Dolphins in Week 5.
Joe Flacco went 20-for-38 for 222 yards with Jacoby Jones catching six passes
for 80 yards in the win for Baltimore, its third in four career games against
Detroit (7-7) has now dropped four of its last five games and fell out of
first place in the NFC North, as the team is now a game back of the Chicago
Bears for the top spot in the division.
Matthew Stafford continued to turn the ball over, getting picked off three
times, including twice in the fourth quarter and now has nine interceptions
over his past four games along with a pair of fumbles lost. He finished the
contest 18-for-34 for 235 yards with one touchdown pass.
