Justin Tucker is not thinking about the missed field goal that cost the Baltimore Ravens a place in last year's Super Bowl.

Justin Tucker has said that he is focused on doing his job for the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.

The rookie kicker replaced Billy Cundiff as kicker for the Ravens this season, after the veteran missed a game-levelling field goal during the AFC conference final last year to send the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl.

The 23-year-old told the Ravens' website: "I'm just doing my job. They expect me to do my job and I'm glad to be of service.

"This is a new team now. What's in the past is in the past. It has no bearing on what we're doing this week or this day in practice. The only thing I'm thinking about when I go to kick a ball is my technique and my routine.

"We have such great relationships in this locker room, I think we'll always have a chance to be successful as long as we are sticking together like that."

Tucker made 30 of his 33 field goal attempts during the regular season, and also kicked the winning points in their overtime victory against the Denver Broncos last weekend.
