Justin Tucker is one of the best kickers in the NFL but he was no match for the Al Michaels jinx on Saturday night.
During the Bills-Ravens, Michaels remarked that Tucker “almost ever misses” seconds before Tucker kicked the ball off the upright.

Tucker went on to miss a second field goal after Michaels promised not to put another kibosh on him.
Ravens fans at home immediately blamed Michaels for both misses.
DAMN YOU AL MICHAELS
