Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker absolutely stunned the Detroit Lions with a game-winning 66-yard field goal as time expired Sunday, and earned a place in the NFL record books in the process.
Tucker’s right leg propelled the Ravens to a 19-17 win as his 66-yard field goal bounced off the cross bar and landed between the up rights.
It set a record as the longest kick in NFL history as the previous record was a 64-yard boot from Matt Prater in 2013.

That is an absolutely insane win for the Ravens and a devastating loss for head coach Dan Campbell and the Lions. Detroit took a 17-16 lead with a 35-yard field goal from Ryan Santoso with 1:04 left in regulation.
Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson then orchestrated a game-winning drive which included a conversion on fourth-and-19. Jackson hit Sammy Watkins for a 36-yard reception to advance the Ravens to the Detroit 48 yard line.
Tucker’s kick came three plays later after one spike and one incomplete pass.
