Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the Detroit Lions (or their opponent) find a way to blow your mind, again.
This time, the culprit was Baltimore Ravens kicker, Justin Tucker who nails a NFL record 66-yard field goal as time expires to defeat the Lions 19-17. Just like Tom Dempsey of the New Orleans Saints in 1970, a NFL record game-winning kick beats the Lions.
BLUEPRINT FOR VICTORY: Detroit Lions’ defense did enough to beat the Ravens. The offense did not
As expected, the reactions came in fast and furious.
Here’s audio from the Lions radio broadcast on the longest field goal in NFL history.
Omg Justin Tucker.
Oh dear Lions fans.

Former Lions tweeted through the pain, almost like seeing scars be reopened once again.
Justin Tucker are you serious… game winner record setting kick??

Oh my god. You can’t make this stuff up.
