After being most of the offense in wins over the New York Jets (four field goals), and Pittsburgh Steelers (five field goals), Ravens kicker Justin Tucker had a pretty uneventful Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Much to the dismay of those of us who, like me, have Justin on our fantasy football teams, the second-year man out of Texas didn’t attempt a single field goal Sunday. Not only that, but he even had one of his extra-point attempts vultured when John Harbaugh decided to go for two following Dennis Pitta’s touchdown catch.
You can forgive young Justin, then, for adding his own exclamation point to what was arguably the most ridiculous two minutes in NFL history.
Here’s Justin after Albert McClellan tackled the Vikes’ Matt Asiata on the final kick return:
Justin could be expecting a fine from the league after this one, unfortunately. As Zach Wilt points out in the BSR link above, 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree and running back Frank Gore received $10,500 fines for throwing footballs in the stands after scoring last season.
Anyone know who caught the punt?
UPDATE: Here are Pat and Jim Craig, the lucky guys who caught it!
