Justin Tucker becomes Ravens’ career scoring leader




PITTSBURGH — Justin Tucker, the NFL’s most accurate kicker, added another title to his already distinguished career.

Tucker is now the Baltimore Ravens’ all-time leading scorer.

His 42-yard field goal in the first quarter gave him 1,466 points in his 11-year career. He moved past Matt Stover, the team’s first kicker who totaled 1,464 points from 1996 to 2008.

Among current players, Tucker ranks fifth in scoring, behind Robbie Gould (1,919), Mason Crosby (1,877), Matt Prater (1,634) and Nick Folk (1,488).

Tucker has connected on 90.9% of his career field goals, making 352 of 387 attempts. He is the only active kicker with over 100 field goal tries who is over 90% for his career.

The 33-year-old Tucker is a five-time first-team All-Pro after going undrafted in 2012.
