Baltimore Ravens win over Detroit Lions with 61-yard kick

Updated:
DETROIT, MI -

Justin Tucker may have saved the Baltimore Ravens' season while damaging the Detroit Lions' postseason hopes on Monday night.

Tucker's sixth field goal of the night was a career-long, 61-yard kick with 38 seconds left as the Ravens downed the Lions 18-16.

The go-ahead boot came less than two minutes after Matthew Stafford threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Joseph Fauria, putting the Lions ahead 16-15.

 Baltimore rookie Matt Elam iced the victory by grabbing Stafford's third interception of the game.

 The 8-6 Ravens still control the AFC second and final wild-card berth and are within one game of first-place Cincinnati in the AFC North.

The Lions fall to 7-7, putting them one game behind first-place Chicago and a half-game in back of Green Bay in the NFC North.
