The Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns went toe to toe in a classic on Monday Night Football that ended with Justin Tucker showing why he is arguably the greatest kicker in NFL history in 47-42 win for the defending AFC North champions.
A Browns comeback led to a wild fourth quarter that included the Ravens nearly being left without a quarterback after Ravens backup Trace McSorley suffered a knee injury; Lamar Jackson returning to the field following McSorley’s after suffering from cramps (?) to throw a go-ahead touchdown on a 4th and 5 play; and a subsequent game-tying Cleveland drive.
Yet, it was Tucker, who had the definitive word. His 55-yard field goal kept the Ravens alive the AFC Wild Card hunt with an 8-5 record and just on the outside of the playoff picture.
Here are three radio calls of Justin Tucker’s kick from Monday’s night’s thriller:

What a game. It was truly a classic.
