Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is really good at his job. In fact, he may be the best kicker in the entirety of the National Football League. Tucker, who famously stated that he could hit a 70 yard field goal, has hit some clutch and impressive field goals during his NFL tenure.
Last night, the Ravens kicked off their 2014 NFL season by rematching the team they defeated in Super Bowl 47, the San Francisco 49ers. The Ravens dominated the game from start to finish, winning by a score of 23-3.
Of course, the outcome is essentially meaningless considering the fact that the game was merely a preseason affair. Although the win does not mean much, players were given important reps to prove themselves on an NFL football field.
Justin Tucker got quite the workload last night, nailing all three of his field goal attempts from 55, 42, and 22 yards respectively. Tucker also made two extra points with ease during the game as well.
Instead of praising his impressive field goals last night, Tucker posted a photo on Instagram highlighting his low point of the night. Check out the hilarious post in the photo below:

Also, here’s a shot of me getting royally stiff-armed directly in the face…
Nothing is funnier than self-deprecating humor, especially from a successful athlete. Please don’t ever change Tucker for you are a hidden gem in the NFL. Here is to hoping we see Tucker attempt that 70 yard field goal later this season.
