Baltimore wasn't the only place where people were cheering as Ravens kicker Justin Tucker nailed a game-winning 61-yard field goal against the Lions on Monday night. The Ravens' 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions was hailed around the NFC North as it shook up the race for the division title.
The last-minute loss dropped the Lions' record to 7-7. Detroit went from controlling its own playoff fate to being in third place in the division. Given the impact of his kick, several players from Chicago Bears (8-6) and the Green Bay Packers (7-6-1) were among those celebrating Tucker's feat on Twitter.
Omg!!!!! What a leg!!!

Even Vikings receiver Greg Jennings was excited despite his team being in the basement of the division.
Wow from 61!
