A tense extra point from Evan McPherson – the kick was slammed into the right upright and was declared as a great kick. It was then it was followed by a penalty to give Cincinnati an advantage of one point.
Justin Tucker remains a unicorn
Even when things aren’t going well with Baltimore’s offense, even when things are slow for Baltimore offense, crossing the midfield can be a great opportunity to score points with Tucker’s right foot. Tucker.
Tucker scored the first score by scoring a field goal of 37 yards on the Ravens first drive. in the 3rd quarter, Tucker smashed from 58 yards with effortless (the NBC broadcast said the kick could have been successful from 60 feet) for Baltimore an advantage of 13-10.
