Justin Tucker is one of the best kickers in football right now.

After kicking six field goals on Monday night, included a last-minute 61-yard bomb to keep the Ravens playoffs hope alive, Tucker feels he can do better.

Tucker told USA Today he can do even better, that he could probably make one from 70 yards as well.

“If I pulled out the 8-degree driver – on a day when I’m feeling real fresh – I could probably hit one from 70 yards,” Tucker told USA TODAY Sports. “I hit one from 70 yards in pregame in Detroit this past Monday night.”

Tucker says he made one from 79 yards out earlier this season.

“That was in Denver before our opener in September,” Tucker said.  “The weather was perfect; the field was good.  With the altitude in the Rocky Mountains, the ball jumps off your foot.”
