Ravens Beat Lions on Tucker's Field Goals

Updated: Tuesday, December 17 2013, 10:23 AM EST

Justin Tucker's career-long 61-yard field goal with 38 seconds left lifted the Baltimore Ravens to an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in a Monday night matchup with major playoff implications.

Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam sealed the victory with an interception -- Matthew Stafford's third of the night.

Stafford threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Joseph Fauria with 2:21 left, putting Detroit ahead 16-15. But the Lions were unable to make a 2-point conversion and couldn't prevent Baltimore from setting up its sensational kicker for his sixth field goal of the game and 33rd in a row.

The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (8-6) are in control of an AFC wild card following their fourth straight win.

Detroit (7-7) has hurt its playoff chances by losing four of its last five.
