Justin Tucker almost wins Pro Bowl
By Jamison Hensley
Kicker Justin Tucker, the Baltimore Ravens' Most Valuable Player this season, almost became the hero of the Pro Bowl on Sunday.
Tucker had a chance to win the Pro Bowl in the final seconds but his 67-yard field-goal attempt came up short. This led to a 22-21 loss for Team Sanders, which had all three Ravens' Pro Bowl players.
In his first Pro Bowl, Tucker made all three of his extra points but missed both of this field-goal attempts, which were from extremely long range. Tucker, who has a career long of 61 yards, was 2 yards short on a 66-yard attempt at the end of the first half.
Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs third on Team Sanders with four tackles. He stopped quarterback Drew Brees 2 yards short of the end zone in the first quarter.
Right guard Marshal Yanda, the Ravens' other Pro Bowl player, played in the second half.
