Dec 16 (Reuters) - Justin Tucker kicked a game-winning 61-yard field goal and accounted for all of Baltimore's points on Monday to send the Ravens to an 18-16 win over Detroit that kept them firmly in the playoff race.
Tucker made six field goals in all, with his final long-range blast providing the winning margin with just 38 seconds remaining.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco completed a clutch 27-yard pass to Jacoby Jones to drive his team back down field and set up the winning boot.
The Ravens' (8-6) fourth straight win ties them with Miami (8-6) for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC. Baltimore own the tiebreaker over the Dolphins.
The sinking Lions (7-7) fell a game behind Chicago for first place in the NFC North after their fourth loss in five games. (Writing by Jahmal Corner in Los Angeles; editing by Amlan Chakraborty)
