Another Baltimore Ravens game, another incredible win – that makes four in a row for those keeping score. Now the Ravens are 2-5 on the road, 8-6 on the season, and entirely in control of their own destiny.

On this night, as we’ve seen several times before this year, victory comes off the foot of Justin Tucker. Six field goals, including a 61-yarder in the last minute, were enough to beat a very good Detroit Lions team on their noisy field.

Tucker is one of the more interesting guys around the league. The second-year kicker comes out of Texas where he was a music major! The guy sings opera in four languages. He is a rapper in the locker room and a teammate favorite. It is always a great story to see a good guy succeed.

Matthew Stafford threw three interceptions, which is close to the center of the heart of the storyline for this contest. Megatron was a bit closer to minitron, but without doubt is an awesome player on most nights.

But the center of the story is Justin Tucker. In the post-game interview he said that his field goals helped his fantasy team win, adding also that fantasy football fans everywhere should enjoy the points!  Haha! That is great! Give the man 200 million bucks!

We’ll be talking about this and more tomorrow and all week here on The Baltimore Wire. Come back and join us … like us on Facebook … follow us on Twitter @BaltimoreWireFS.
