Justin Tucker Wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Month


After nailing a 53-yard field goal in the wind last Sunday against the Jets, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker turned to the crowd and motioned for cheers to rain down upon him.

Well, the awards are falling from the skies.

Tucker has been named the AFC Special Team Player of the Month for November.

He was also named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 12. It's the second time he's won the award in the past three weeks.

Tucker has gone 9-for-9 on field goal attempts this month, including an overtime game-winner from 46 yards out against the Bengals in Week 10 and four field goals against the Jets last week. Tucker connected from 30, 26, 33 and 53 yards.

He can add to his November total this Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The second-year kicker has now hit 22 straight field goals and is 24-for-26 this season. Tucker holds the NFL's longest active streak. If he hits his next field goal, he'll have the second-longest field goal streak in Ravens franchise history. Matt Stover has the record with 36.
