The Baltimore Ravens’ 2011 season ended with a missed field goal in the AFC Championship game. Because of another that was made, the Ravens will head back to the AFC title game, and the Denver Broncos’ season is over. Kicker Justin Tucker hit a 47-yard field goal with 13:18 left in the second overtime of the game, putting the Ravens ahead, 38-35, and still alive in the postseason. The Ravens were close to sending the game against the New England Patriots into overtime last year, but Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field goal with 15 seconds left in the game, and the Pats went on to Super Bowl XLVI with a 23-20 win. As a result of that miss, Baltimore moved on from Cundiff to Tucker, an undrafted rookie from Texas who made 30 of 33 field goals in the regular season, and 10 of 13 from the 40-49-yard range.
