Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is widely considered the best kicker in the league, as he is the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Unfortunately, even the best in the business have bad days and Tucker is having one right now, as he has missed two field goals in the first half of their Divisional Round game against the Buffalo Bills.

This is the first time he’s ever missed multiple field goals in a playoff game and had made 13-of-14 field goals in eight playoff games before this year. He has now made 2-of-5 in the 2021 playoffs.

The misses were close, as both loudly clanged off the upright. Tucker will more than likely bounce back, but his next kick will have Ravens fans on the edge of their seats.
