If you were watching Week 15's edition of Monday Night Football, you probably learned an important truth.
Justin Tucker is one ice-cold dude.
The Ravens kicker hammered in six field goals, scoring literally all of the Ravens’ 18 points against the Detroit Lions. Tucker’s kicks came from all over the field, and each seemed to get progressively farther from the uprights.

His sixth and final field goal was a 61-yard bomb that barely slipped over the bottom bar. The kick won the game for Baltimore and maintained the Ravens’ hold of an AFC Wild Card berth.
To say Tucker has a pair of pig iron-plated guavas would be an understatement, but it was a statement one fan was prepared to make.
According to Ramin Rezvani of Next Impulse Sports, some jubilant Ravens fan altered the kicker’s Wikipedia page after Baltimore’s win over Detroit. The addendum to Tucker’s page described a sudden expansion of the cojones that occurred Dec. 16, 2013.
While that isn’t exactly how the human body works, the idea of Tucker’s clutch-kicking heroics physically manifesting in such a way is an amusing notion.
It’s even more amusing when you consider that Tucker himself might’ve written the blurb on his Wikipedia page (which has since been restored to normal).
The Baltimore kicker was extremely pleased with his six field goals. In a postgame interview, Tucker said he was happy to have so many opportunities to kick, because it helped both his real team and his fantasy team.
Yes, Tucker owns himself in fantasy football, and he hopes you enjoy those points he racked up, Planet Earth.
With that, it’s probably safe to say Tucker has effectively cemented himself as the most eccentric and entertaining kicker in the NFL.
Oh yeah, he’s also pretty good at kicking, too.
Ooooh kill’em, Justin Tucker.
