If you live in the Detroit area or know a Lions fan, whatever you do, don't bring up the name Justin Tucker for, like, the next couple days, weeks or even months. That's because the Baltimore Ravens kicker may have single-handedly put an end to the Lions playoff hopes after hitting six field goals, which helped lead his team to a 18-16 win. To cap off his magical night, Tucker made a career-long, game-winning 61-yard attempt, leaving only 38 seconds on the clock.
Following the game, Tucker explained his emotions while also giving a shoutout to his fantasy owners who were obviously pleased with their kicker's performance tonight:

Detroit has lost four of their last five games. Here are some of their saddest reactions on the micro-blogging site:
