Ravens Fans Blame Announcer Al Michaels For Jinxing Justin Tucker Vs. Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WJZ) -- Justin Tucker missed a field goal on the Ravens' opening drive of Saturday night's AFC Divisional Round game against the Buffalo Bills, and fans are blaming announcer Al Michaels for jinxing him.

The Ravens conducted a 12-play, 61-yard drive to start the game, but were stopped on third and long.

That's when the Ravens called upon Tucker to try to score the games' first points.

"Here is Tucker, he almost never misses," Michaels said.

Tucker's kick, however, hit off the left upright and bounced out, prompting fans to jump on Michaels.


A season in which the Ravens overcame a long list of obstacles to reach the playoffs ended with their star quarterback stuck in the locker room during the fourth quarter and the rest of the team shuffling off the field to join him after a disheartening defeat.
