Ravens rookie kicker has handled the pressure

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — With memories of Billy Cundiff’s last-minute miss still as raw as half-shell oysters around Baltimore, successor Justin Tucker, whose final-play field goal beat the Patriots in September, says he’s not worried about pressure to produce a reprise on Sunday.

“I don’t even think about that,” insisted the undrafted rookie, whose 47-yarder in double overtime at Denver last Saturday saved the season. “Like I said, what is in the past is in the past. It’s not about anything that’s happened, even this past weekend. Every week is a new week and any team can beat any other team on any given Sunday.”
