The Ravens are 3-0, and Justin Tucker looks like the best kicker in the league.
Tucker’s fourth field goal of the day, a 53-yarder, with 1:02 to go provided the winning margin as the Ravens rallied to beat the Jaguars, 19-17. Ravens linebacker Zachary Orr intercepted Blake Bortles to seal it.
Tucker’s game-winning kick was not only right down the middle; it looked like it would have been good from 70 yards.
The Jaguars rallied from 16-7 down to take a 17-16 lead and had the ball at the Ravens 29 following a Paul Posluszny interception with 3:27 left. But the Jags went three and out and Orr blocked a field goal, and the Ravens moved 22 yards to set up Tucker’s kick.
Bortles was intercepted three times, and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was picked off twice in the fourth quarter. Nothing came easy all day for anyone except Tucker. The Ravens outgained the Jags, 283-216, and won despite converting just 3-of-13 third downs.
The Jaguars are 0-3. Both of their touchdowns came on passes from Bortles to Allen Robinson, one in the second quarter and one in the third.
Bortles was 24-of-38 for 194 yards and was sacked four times. The Jags managed just 48 yards rushing.
Flacco scored the Ravens’ only touchdown on a 7-yard run.
