Justin Tucker named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month

Also earned Special Teams Player of the Week honors too.

You could argue that there hasn't been a better kicker than Justin Tucker during the NFL season.

Since missing two field goals in Week 2 against the Browns, Tucker has gone on to make 22 consecutive field goals, which includes two in horrendous conditions in Chicago and four a week ago with the wind being a factor against the Jets.

For his efforts since November began, Tucker was named the AFC Special Teams of the Month. He also earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors as well.

Tucker is tied for third with 24 field goals made. Only four kickers in the top 20 have missed just one kick this year, those being Seattle's Steven Hauschka, New England's Stephen Gostkowski, Chicago's Robbie Gould and the Jets' Nick Folk.

Tucker's 22 consecutive kicks ranks second all-time in Ravens history, behind Matt Stover's 36.
