Justin Tucker kicks game-winning 54-yard FG

Headline Goes Here

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Justin Tucker kicked a 54-yard field goal with 1:02 remaining, lifting the Baltimore Ravens to a 19-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Tucker raised both arms in celebration as his fourth field goal of the day split the uprights with plenty of distance.

The Ravens improved to 3-0 for the third time in franchise history and first since 2009.

The Jaguars fell to 0-3 for the third time in the last four years and surely will hear more talk about coach Gus Bradley's job security.

"We know what these problems are and we have to get them solved quickly," Bradley said. "Both the players and the coaches."

Bradley is now 12-39 in four seasons, the second-worst winning percentage of any NFL coach with at least 50 games.

"I just got done with the team, and we’re well aware of the situation we are in right now," Bradley said. "As the head coach, I’m the problem-solver. We’ve got to solve these problems and quickly, and that’s exactly what I told the team." 

Tucker also made kicks of 43, 42 and 37 yards.


The Jaguars had plenty of chances to win this one in a wild fourth quarter.

They forced three consecutive turnovers in the final frame, but only got a field goal out of it.

Blake Bortles threw two interceptions that ended drives in Baltimore territory, and Jason Myers had a 52-yard field goal blocked.
 
"I have to play better as a quarterback and we have to play better as an offense for this season to be successful," Bortles said.

Bortles now has thrown first-quarter interceptions in every game this season, leading to 17 points for opponents.
 
Going into halftime, fans booed the Jaguars off the field.
 
“There’s a lot of things you can say about that," Bortles said. "I mean if I went into somebody else’s work and paid money to watch them work and they did a bad job, I would probably boo them too.”

Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley had the latest, making a leaping, one-handed catch in front of Robinson down the field. The Ravens turned it into a field goal and a 10-0 lead.

Flacco broke his own franchise record for consecutive completions by connecting on 21 straight.

Flacco misfired on four of his first five throws Sunday, but then reeled off 21 in a row.

The streak ended on Mike Wallace's drop in the end zone early in the third quarter.

The Ravens settled for a field goal and a 16-7 lead. Flacco's previous record was 14 straight set in 2009.

Running back Chris Ivory made his Jaguars debut but was mostly ineffective.
 
“There’s not much to say about it," Ivory said. "When you go out there, you expect to win, but it didn’t go that way. We’ve got a few small mistakes that we need to fix. Now it’s just about moving on to next week.”

Ivory missed the first two games because of a "general medical issue" that required an overnight hospital stay. Ivory was a 1,000-yard rusher with the New York Jets last season.

He finished with 14 yards on 12 carries, hobbling to the sideline several times with an apparent knee injury.
 
“I’m just doing the things that I’ve been doing to stay healthy," Ivory said. "I’m making sure I’m in the cold tub, hot tub and massage. I’m making sure to keep myself in a position to stay active on Sundays.”
