Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was named first-team All-Pro on Friday, capping a stellar season in which he made a 61-yard field goal against the Detroit Lions.

Tucker was the lone Raven to earn an All-Pro distinction from an Associated Press media voting panel.

In his second NFL season, Tucker set franchise single-season records with 38 field goals and 140 points to surpass marks established by Matt Stover during the 2000 season.

Tucker was also voted a first-team Pro Bowl selection by players, coaches and fans and the team Most Valuable Player by reporters who regularly cover the team.

Tucker made 6 of 7 field goals from 50 yards or more. He made six field goals in an 18-16 win over the Lions, including the 61-yard game-winner, to provide all of the points for the red zone-challenged Ravens.

Tucker's streak of 33 consecutive field goals ended when he missed a 37-yarder wide left against the New England Patriots. It was the longest active streak in the NFL

He tied Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski for the most field goals in the league. His 92.7 percent success rate ranked sixth overall.
