For most of the game, the Ravens players could smell victory in the air. Eventually, the Ravens woke up at just the right time.

Justin Tucker hit a 66-yard field goal as time went on and bounced it off the crossbar and through the posts as the Ravens won 19-17.

A Ravens team that kept shooting itself in the foot and lacking opportunities to put the Lions away seemed to have made a mistake too much, with a Lamar Jackson move late in the fourth quarter enabling Detroit to to march down the field after what looked like a game-winning field goal and a 17-16 lead.

But Jackson managed to convert a fourth-and-19 on the final drive to put Tucker up for 66-yard field attempts.

On a day when Calvin Johnson was recognized as the Hall of Famer and Detroit fans took the opportunity to count the boos on Lions owner Sheila Ford Hamp, the lions almost gave their fans something to cheer about. Instead, they lost to fall to 0-3, and the Ravens improved to 2-1.
