The Baltimore Ravens finally left Justin Tucker with too much to do.
After making four field goals, including one from 55 yards, Tucker came up short from 67 on the final play of a 28-27 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Lamar Jackson didn't seem to handle losing to Jacksonville very well. He certainly didn't want anyone blaming him for Baltimore's 28-27 setback to the Jaguars that ended with Justin Tucker missing a 67-yard field goal.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Marvin Jones' shin-dragging touchdown catch will go down as one of the more memorable plays in Jacksonville Jaguars history.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson and the Ravens were struggling to reach the end zone — until Baltimore's takeaway-happy defense made that task a good bit easier.
Marcus Peters forced a fumble in the fourth quarter — the first of three Carolina turnovers in the final 8:14 — and Jackson took advantage of the short field, scoring on a 1-yard run that helped Baltimore hold off the Panthers 13-3 on Sunday.
DENVER (AP) — Those who watch football for a living or for fun have been quick to rip Russell Wilson over his many cringe-worthy games, commercials, catch phrase deliveries and podium performances this season.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Gus Edwards scored two touchdowns in his long-awaited return, staking Baltimore to a double-digit lead in the second half.
Those haven't exactly been safe this season for the Ravens, but this time they managed to hold on.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Justin Tucker's game-winning kick felt pretty routine. The real indication of his greatness may have come earlier.
In the third quarter, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh sent Tucker out to try a 58-yard field goal, even though a miss would have given Cincinnati the ball near midfield.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens essentially have two versions of the victory formation.
One is when the quarterback takes a knee to run out the clock. The other is when Justin Tucker comes on the field to attempt a game-winning kick.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Lamar Jackson has spent his career doing things nobody in the NFL has ever done.
The Ravens quarterback added another outstanding performance with his arm and his legs on Sunday.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa threw for 469 yards and six touchdowns, four of which came during a spectacular fourth quarter, and the Miami Dolphins rallied from a 21-point deficit to beat Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens 42-38 on Sunday.
BALTIMORE RAVENS (8-9)
New faces: S Marcus Williams, S Kyle Hamilton, C Tyler Linderbaum, T Morgan Moses, P Jordan Stout, DT Michael Pierce.
Key losses: The Ravens dealt with tragedy in June when LB Jaylon Ferguson died at age 26, a loss that transcends the normal roster turnover a team goes through in the offseason.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Justin Tucker made his new contract sound about as routine as one of his clutch kicks.
“I joked to (head coach John Harbaugh) one day out at practice,” Tucker said. “We were just kind of just generally talking about the idea.
BALTIMORE RAVENS (8-9)
CAMP SITE: Owings Mills, Maryland
LAST YEAR: The Ravens went through a rarity under coach John Harbaugh — a losing season. Beset by injuries from the preseason on, Baltimore finally collapsed at the end, dropping its final six games.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Longtime Ravens punter Sam Koch retired Thursday and will join the Baltimore coaching staff as a special teams consultant.
A 16-year veteran, Koch, 39, appeared in a franchise-record 256 regular-season games, 239 consecutively from 2006-20, also a team record.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cade York has already kicked out his competition with the Browns.
Cleveland released kickers Chase McLaughlin and Chris Blewitt on Monday, two days after selecting York, one of college football's best kickers, in the fourth round of the NFL draft to upgrade its wayward kicking game.
John Harbaugh has the best kicker in the NFL, currently and possibly ever. Yet, trailing by one point, he left Justin Tucker on the sideline Sunday night and went for a 2-point conversion in the dying seconds at Pittsburgh.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Of all the times Lamar Jackson has rescued the Baltimore Ravens in his young career, last season's game at Cleveland stands out.
The Baltimore Ravens weren't climbing out of this hole. Not the way their offense was sputtering, completely unable to counter what Miami was doing.
“This falls squarely on me as the head coach,” Baltimore's John Harbaugh said.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson led an offensive resurgence in the second half, and Justin Tucker provided the winning points.
In many ways, Baltimore's overtime win over Minnesota mirrored the Ravens' season as a whole.
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — A deep pass to Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook’s longest run of the season had the Minnesota Vikings sitting with a 14-3 lead at Baltimore on Sunday.
Much like the rest of the season, the early success couldn’t sustain Minnesota.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings used a series of big plays to charge to a 14-point lead, an advantage due in part to the play of a defense that prevented versatile Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson from getting comfortable in the pocket or running with any measure of success.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Justin Tucker's job was much easier for this game-winning kick.
No need to set an NFL record — although he still felt the usual nerves with victory on the line.
“Every single time, it doesn't matter if it's a PAT in the first quarter or the game-winning field goal, whether it's a 36-yarder or a 66-yarder, it's always about managing your feelings and managing your emotions,” Tucker said.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Dustin Hopkins was signed as the Los Angeles Chargers kicker on Tuesday after the team waived Tristan Vizcaino.
Hopkins was released by Washington on Oct. 20 after seven seasons.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore coach John Harbaugh was asked recently to rank the pulsating finishes these past few weeks that have put his team atop the AFC North.
“The next one is going to be the best one,” Harbaugh said with a laugh.
DETROIT (AP) — Dan Campbell wasn't nearly as emotional Monday afternoon as he had been after his Detroit Lions lost 19-17 to the Minnesota Vikings on another last-second field goal.
CHICAGO (AP) — Jared Goff took a couple of steps toward the line and pointed to Alec Ogletree, concerned about a potential blitz. Frank Ragnow snapped the ball as Goff walked in, and that was the end of a promising opening drive.
Call it the Kicking Kraze or the Field Goal Frenzy. Whatever you prefer, the foot is definitely a major part of pro football through three weeks.
Most notably, from long range.
Through those three weeks, there have been 36 attempts at 50-yard or longer field goals, the most in a season over the last dozen years.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — For Justin Tucker, fitting in isn't a problem.
“You’ve never seen a kicker make so much noise in a team room,” said defensive lineman Calais Campbell, Tucker's teammate with the Baltimore Ravens.
DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos can quell any doubts about their legitimacy Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and their star game-changers Lamar Jackson and Justin Tucker.
The Broncos (3-0) entered October as one of five unbeaten teams in the NFL but their wins have come against the bottom three teams in the league, according to the latest AP Pro32 poll.
Matt Prater came up short and paid the price, not once but twice.
His attempt to break his own record for longest field goal in NFL history — a 64-yarder in Denver's thin air eight years ago — backfired Sunday when a former teammate returned his missed 68-yard attempt in Jacksonville's heavy air a record-tying 109 yards for a touchdown on the last play of the first half.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh called Justin Tucker the best kicker in history after his 66-yard field goal gave Baltimore a win at Detroit.
With all due respect to Adam Vinatieri and anyone else with a claim to that honor, Tucker is building quite a case.
Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in rushing. The Kansas City Chiefs turned the ball over on their first three possessions.
No surprise, both 2020 NFL conference champions lost Sunday.
Three weeks into this season and inconsistency has become the norm, even for some of the league’s top contenders.
DETROIT (AP) — Justin Tucker ended the game as if he was starting it, backing up an extra step or two and kicking the football with every bit of force he had in his right foot.
Tucker set an NFL record with a 66-yard field goal, bouncing it through off the crossbar as time expired to lift the Baltimore Ravens to a 19-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
DETROIT (AP) — Justin Tucker set an NFL record with a 66-yard field goal, bouncing it through off the crossbar as time expired to lift the Baltimore Ravens to a 19-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
DETROIT (AP) — Justin Tucker’s 66-yard field goal will be the play everyone remembers about the Baltimore Ravens’ win over Detroit.
A lot had to happen before Tucker even got the chance.
There would have been no record-breaking kick if Lamar Jackson hadn’t hit Sammy Watkins for 36 yards on 4th-and-19.
DETROIT (AP) — Justin Tucker's 66-yard field goal will be the play everyone remembers about the Baltimore Ravens' win over Detroit.
A lot had to happen before Tucker even got the chance.
There would have been no record-breaking kick if Lamar Jackson hadn't hit Sammy Watkins for 36 yards on 4th-and-19.
From the unbeaten Steelers at the top to the winless Jets at the bottom, predictability has taken a hike halfway through NFL 2020.
There's one main reason, of course: COVID-19.

Baltimore — The Baltimore Ravens didn't force a turnover, scored only two touchdowns and were dangerously close to going into overtime at home against lowly Indianapolis.
"We didn't play our best game," coach John Harbaugh readily acknowledged.
