Justin Tucker Named AFC Special Teams Player Of The Month


Kicker Justin Tucker is quietly having another superb season, and on Thursday was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November.

Tucker went 7-for-7 on his field-goal attempts last month, and more than 70 percent of his kickoffs went for touchbacks.

Tucker displayed his range and consistency during the month. He hit a 46-yarder in Pittsburgh, then a key 55-yarder in New Orleans on Monday Night Football. Tucker connected on four field goals (all under 35 yards) in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

It's the second time Tucker has won Special Teams Player of the Month during his career. He also earned it in November of last year.

It's not Tucker's first award of the season as he was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 3 when he went 3-for-3 on his field-goal attempts in Cleveland.

But the 2013 Pro Bowler is trailing in voting this year. New England's Stephen Gostkowski currently leads in the Pro Bowl ballots. Vote for Tucker here.

The Ravens had one other monthly award winner this season, as linebacker C.J. Mosley was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for October.
