Kicker Justin Tucker was named the Ravens' Most Valuable Player in balloting from reporters who regularly cover the team.
Tucker connected on 33 consecutive field goals before missing from 37 yards Sunday during the Ravens' 41-7 loss to the New England Patriots. It's the second-longest streak in franchise history behind retired Ravens kicker Matt Stover, who made 36 consecutive field goals during the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
In his second NFL season, Tucker has hit 35 of 38 field goals this year for a 92.1 percent success rate.
Middle linebacker Daryl Smith, the Ravens' leading tackler this season, finished second in the voting behind Tucker.
Quarterback Joe Flacco was voted the Media Good Guy Award winner, edging out defensive end Chris Canty and strong safety James Ihedigbo.
Flacco, who's had a difficult season with a career-high 19 interceptions after signing a $120.6 million contract during the offseason, won the award for his regular accessibility, cooperation and candid comments during interviews.
