6. Sam Koch, P, Ravens

Say what you will about special teams play, but it was critical in the Ravens’ victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The more active of the two Ravens’ kicking squad was punter Sam Koch. Koch booted six punts against the Bears, and here are some impressive kicking numbers.

  • 260 yards total punt yardage
  • 43.3 average per punt attempt
  • His longest punt was 57 yards
  • Only fielded one returnable punt that only went for 4 yards.
  • Koch had four punts that were downed or went out of bounds inside the opposing 20-yard line.

While punters don’t get much attention, the Ravens dominated the battle of field position against an opposing offense that struggled to move the football consistently for most of the day.

Koch’s contributions ultimately allowed Baltimore’s defense not to get pinned down in the red zone and have defensive coordinator Don Martindale’s full playcalling sheet at the ready.

7. Justin Tucker, K, Ravens

Last but certainly not least is the legendary Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. While Tucker is an elite talent at what he does, Soldier Field is not a kind venue for kickers.

Nevertheless, despite the unrelenting wind, Tucker drilled home three field goals for Baltimore on Sunday, including this 46-yard attempt late in the fourth quarter.

His consistent hard work to perfect his craft gave the Ravens a late lead before the roller-coaster finish.

Overall, this performance from Baltimore was full of hard work, determination, and players stepping up in the face of adversity without their star quarterback.
