The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Detroit Lions in Week 3 of the 2021 season on the spectacular leg of kicker Justin Tucker. Trailing by one point with three seconds left in regulation, Tucker drilled a 66-yard field goal to win the game. The kick marked the longest field goal ever in NFL history, beating out a 64-yarder by then-Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater back in 2013. Tucker was behind the logo when he kicked the football, and the ball bounced off of the crossbar and in to give Baltimore the win.

The kick will forever go down in history. Lions fans unfortunately know how good the leg of Tucker is all too well, as he once again took a win from right under their noses.
