Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker officially became the team’s leading scorer in franchise history with his completed field goal in the first quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Heading into Week 14, Tucker was two points away from breaking the Ravens’ franchise record for points scored. Matt Stover previously held the record (1,464), but with Tucker’s field goal in the first quarter, Tucker now has 1,466 career points.

The Ravens got an early 3-0 lead against Pittsburgh in the first quarter that was later extended with a J.K. Dobbins’ touchdown run.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is the franchise’s all-time scoring leader

Tucker has a fairly good streak going at Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium, formerly named Heinz Field: he is 24-of-25 and has completed two game-winning field goals, once in 2019 and once in 2015.

Whereas Stover took 13 seasons to set the Ravens’ scoring record, Tucker is only in his 11th season. The star kicker is now just three field goals away from surpassing Stover’s record of 354 completed field goals.

Pittsburgh’s stadium has defeated even the best of kickers given its windy conditions, yet Tucker has been automatic so far this game.

It’s only fitting that the most accurate kicker in the league’s history becomes the Ravens’ leading scorer. May we never take Tucker’s greatness for granted.
