How are the Ravens prepping for the Steelers?

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has been automatic lately, making 22 straight field goals. He could be a key figure in Thursday night’s game against the Steelers. And the recognition for Tucker keeps rolling in.

On Wednesday, Tucker was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month of November. He had already been named the AFC special teams player of the week two times this month, and deservedly so. Tucker kicked four field goals Sunday against the Jets, including a 53-yarder. Earlier this month, Tucker kicked a 46-yarder in overtime to beat the Bengals.

Tucker’s streak of 22 consecutive field goals is the longest current streak in the league. The Ravens (5-6) have been inconsistent in many phases this season. But with Tucker, placekicking is something they don’t have to worry about.
