Tucker named special teams player of week

This is starting to become a habit for Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.

He was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after making six field goals, including a 61-yard game-winner, in the Ravens' 18-16 victory at the Detroit Lions. This marks the third time in six weeks that he has received the honor.

Tucker was named player of the week in Week 10 (hit a 46-yard game-winner against the Cincinnati Bengals) and Week 12 (four field goals, including a 53-yarder, against the New York Jets). He was also named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November.

The second-year kicker has converted 33 straight field goals, which is the longest current streak in the league. It's also four away from breaking Matt Stover's team record (36).
