Justin Tucker Wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award for Franchise-Record Ninth Time

Justin Tucker keeps adding to his long list of accomplishments.

The Ravens kicker won the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award for the second time this season, and for a franchise-record ninth time in his career, the NFL announced Wednesday. Tucker was a perfect 4-for-4 on field goal attempts and made both extra point attempts during Sunday’s 26-24 victory over the Cleveland Browns that clinched the AFC North for the Ravens.

It completed another stellar regular season for Tucker, who made 35 of 39 field goal attempts and scored a franchise-record 141 points for the third-consecutive year. Two of Tucker’s missed field goals this season were blocked, and the other two misses were from 53 yards and 65 yards, respectively.

Tucker is the most accurate kicker in NFL history, making 237 - of - 263 attempts (90.1%) over his seven-year career. Since entering the NFL in 2012, Tucker has made more field goals than any other kicker.

With the Ravens headed to the playoffs, Tucker will have an opportunity to add to his flawless postseason record. In six career playoff games, Tucker is 8-for-8 on field goal attempts and has made 23- straight extra points. During Baltimore’s Super Bowl run following the 2012 season, Tucker made one of the biggest field goals in franchise history, a 47-yarder in the second overtime to beat the Denver Broncos during the divisional playoffs.
