“It’s always cool to be recognized in that way,” Tucker said prior to Wednesday afternoon’s practice in Owings Mills. “I always want to give credit where it’s due. [Long snapper] Morgan [Cox] and [holder/punter] Sam [Koch] and the guys protecting us kicking the ball deserve a lot of credit for what we’re able to do. I’m just happy that we were able to contribute to a really important win, and I look forward to doing so again this weekend.”
Tucker finished the regular season ranked second in the league in field goals with 35 and 10th in extra points with 36. With 141 points this season, he is the only NFL kicker to score at least 140 points in each of the past three years.
