OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens most formidable offensive threat these days is Justin Tucker, a quirky fellow whose skill set transcends kicking a football with uncanny accuracy.

Despite scoring only one touchdown in each of its last two games, Baltimore won twice because Tucker kicked nine field goals - four in a 19-3 victory over the New York Jets and five more last Thanksgiving in a 22-20 win over Pittsburgh.

The second-year pro has made 27 straight field goal attempts and is 29 for 31 for the season.

Tucker hopes to extend his streak on Sunday, when the Ravens (6-6) pursue their season-high third consecutive win against Minnesota.

At Texas, Tucker majored in music. In the Baltimore locker room, he entertains his teammates by singing opera or performing freestyle rap.
