“Just Trying to Get Ready for the Football Game,” Says Tucker
Baltimore Ravens’ kicker Justin Tucker has downplayed a pre-game incident involving Kansas City Chiefs players before their recent matchup.
Business as Usual for Tucker
Tucker, who has been with the Ravens for 12 years, described the incident as “silly” and “not a big deal.” He explained that before each game, the kickers from both teams go to the other team’s designated warmup area on the field. Tucker stated that he had never had a problem with anyone during this routine until the recent incident.
A Misunderstanding Turned Serious
According to Tucker, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes approached him while he was stretching and asked him to move his helmet. Tucker complied and believed he had moved it enough. However, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce then kicked Tucker’s equipment and threw his helmet, leading Tucker to believe it was all part of a playful exchange. However, he realized that the Chiefs players were taking it more seriously.
Letting Bygones Be Bygones
Despite the incident, Tucker expressed that he had never had any issues with anyone and that all players are professionals getting ready for the game. He emphasized that both Mahomes and Kelce are exceptional players and were just trying to prepare for the intense matchup. Tucker maintained a laid-back attitude, stating that he was solely focused on getting ready for the football game.
Ravens Secure Victory
In the end, the Ravens triumphed over the Chiefs with a 17-10 win. Tucker’s ability to brush off the pre-game incident did not affect his performance, as he continued to excel on the field.
