Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens has not been as accurate as usual with the kick, which is one of the biggest underappreciated surprises of the 2023 NFL season. After 12 games, the five-time first-team All-Pro and probable future Hall of Fame kicker has the lowest field goal % of any season in his career. He has an 80.8% success percentage in 2023. He made 82.5% of his field goals in 2015, which was his previous worst.

Following a missed attempt during Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers, Tucker’s record this season is 21–26, or an 80.8% success rate. Now, three of the last five games have seen him miss a field goal.John Harbaugh, the coach of the Ravens, backed his kicker after the game.

Justin Tucker did fall to second place among kickers who have attempted at least 100 field goals in the all-time field goal percentage leaders list as a result of the failed field goal. With a career rate of 90%, Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo has now eclipsed Tucker’s 89.9%. Koo has a 95.7% field goal percentage this year, missing only one, going 22–23.
