The Baltimore Ravens were able to defeat the Detroit Lions in Week 3 by the final score of 19-17 thanks to the heroics of kicker Justin Tucker, who drilled a 66-yard field goal as time expired to give Baltimore the last-second win. He hit four-of-five field goals throughout the entire game, scoring points in bunches for the Ravens.

When special teams coordinator Chris Horton was asked about what impresses him the most about how Tucker goes about, handles, and prepares for his job, he praised Tucker’s confidence, saying that he loves the moment and wants to be in it.

“…It’s one of those things; when you look at Justin [Tucker], it’s about confidence, and that goes for any player. The more confident you are in yourself, the more ability you have to go out and do great things. And when you’re around Justin, you understand that this guy is confident. He understands, and he loves the moment; he wants to be in the moment. And so, when those opportunities come up, he practices them out here on Field Three. He practices these moments, so he goes out and there’s nothing to think about. Good snap, good hold, good kick, good protection – we’ll get the results we want.”

Tucker has established himself as one of the best (if not the best) kickers in NFL history over the course of his career. He’s done that by believing in himself, as well as carrying a certain swagger to him that shows how confident he is, which is extremely important.
