Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was called on to win the game Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers and he came through. Tucker, from 49 yards out on a rainy day that muted both teams’ offenses, drilled the game-winning field goal.

Tucker’s Ravens teammates mobbed him after the kick sailed through the uprights to give Baltimore a 20-17 win over the NFC heavyweight 49ers. Then, they raised him on their shoulders and carried him off the field.

The 30-year-old veteran has been so clutch for the Ravens since joining the franchise as an undrafted free agent out of Texas back in 2012. He was once again Sunday, and now the Ravens are clearly the NFL’s best team heading into the pivotal month of December.
