After kicking six field goals, including a game-winning 61-yarder, in Baltimore's 18-16 win over Detroit, Justin Tucker has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Quite the shocking revelation, I know.

Tucker has been a monster for the Ravens this season. He's made 35 of his 37 attempts and hasn't missed since going awry on two attempts in Week 2 against Cleveland.

He's made 33 kicks in a row and became the first kicker in NFL history to make kicks in a single game from 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 yards out.

Tucker has arguably been one of Baltimore's top three dangerous weapons this season. Being able to place an enormous amount of confidence in a kicker goes a long way when games get tight down the stretch.
