Will kicker Justin Tucker be perfect on field goals the rest of the season?
One of Tucker’s goals this season was to be perfect on field goal attempts. That lofty ambition ended in Week 2 when Tucker uncharacteristically missed two field goal attempts against the Browns. However Tucker has made nine straight since then including four last weekend against the Dolphins. He is kicking better than ever and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg says much of Tucker’s success is due to preparation.
“He went back to work and that’s really what he’s been doing since then” Rosburg said. “He likes to practice he likes to work on the fine details and fundamentals and he continues to do that. He’s continuing to polish his craft and I think he recognizes the fact that kickers in this league can be successful for a long time if they pay attention to those fine points of detail. I fully expect that Justin will continue to improve during the course of his career.”

The Baltimore Ravens (3-2) are set to take on the Green Bay Packers (2-2) on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. The game will be televised on FOX at 1:00pm EST. The Ravens are looking to improve to 4-2 and hopefully pull away from the tight race in the AFC North with a win.
But achieving that goal could be difficult against a team like the Packers. The Ravens...
Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers hit big plays at the right time, and Green Bay's injury plagued defense manhandled the defending Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens in a 19-17 win.
Step aside Kobe Bryant because Baltimore Ravens team photographer Bill Hoffman absolutely shattered the recovery time for a torn Achilles on Sunday afternoon.
The sideline photographer suffered the gruesome injury after Baltimore wide receiver Tandon Moss barreled into him while snagging a Joe Flacco pass out of bounds near the end zone. A Green Bay defender pushed Moss, leading...
Left tackle Bryant McKinnie and defensive tackle Terrence Cody have been placed on the Baltimore Ravens' inactive list against the Green Bay Packers.
McKinnie appears to be a healthy scratch. He was not listed on Friday's injury report and lost his starting job to Eugene Monroe, who is slated to make his Baltimore debut Sunday after being obtained on Oct. 2 in a trade with...
Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones (knee0 will return to the field for the first time since Week 1.Fantasy Spin:Jones will probably end up sharing snaps with Marlon Brown and not be a great fantasy option this week versus Green Bay.
Jimmy Smith No one is talking about Smith's importance in this game. In fact, Smith might be the most important player on the Ravens defense this week.Ever since being drafted in the first round in 2011, Smith has shown flashes of brilliance and is playing the best football of his career in 2013. But Smith has always struggled defending double moves and back shoulder fades. In...
BALTIMORE– In a battle of former Super Bowl MVPs, defense was the deciding factor as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Baltimore Ravens. As notoriously known for their defense, the Ravens pressured Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers all game, and while he was under pressure throughout, he was able to step up and make plays. Rodgers […]
Baltimore QB Joe Flacco (20-for-34, 342 yds, 2 TD Sunday against the Packers) has now thrown for at least 300 yards in two of his last three games.Fantasy Spin:Unfortunately for Flacco, both of those 300-yard efforts have come in Ravens losses. Flacco isn't usually prone to throwing interceptions but this season, he's actually tossed more picks (eight) than touchdowns (seven).
The Packers had a rough start to the day on offense. Fortunately, their defense was pulling out all the stops to make plays.
After putting up yet another impressive defensive stand midway through the first half, the Packers forced the Ravens to punt on a 4th-and-13. But when Sam Koch tried to get the kick off, a Packers defender streaked out in front of him and got a piece of the...
The Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens will meet on Sunday in a match-up of two teams hoping to kick start their season.
Green Bay improved to 2-2 with a win over Detroit last week while Baltimore upended Miami to move to 3-2.
Coverage of the game between the Packers and Ravens will air on FOX beginning at 1:00 pm ET from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD.
I'm not too surprised that the Pack is favored by Vegas as a visitor going into M&T Bank Stadium, considering that many bettors will take Baltimore and the points. That should mean a lot of extra action in terms of gambling volume on this game...which of course means lots of extra commission income for the sports casinos.
The fact is, since John Harbaugh took over the...
Ngata and Suggs remain as standout holdovers from last year’s Super Bowl championship team
The Green Bay Packers will hit the road again and head to Baltimore to face the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens. The Packers have yet to have back-to-back home or road games this season and they will alternate home and road games until early November.

I know Joe Flacco got himself a Super Bowl win last season, but I still don’t respect him as a passer. Added to that is Ray Rice’s bad hip and the Ravens will need to get creative just to keep drives alive. Look for Jermichael Finley to get behind a collection of linebackers that is very good at rushing the passer but poor at pass coverage.

The Packers haven’t won a road game since December 2012 at Chicago. While this isn’t the same Ravens team that won a Super Bowl back in February, they are still tough at home and are...
