Chicago Bears fans were Baltimore Ravens fans on Monday night. By defeating the Detroit Lions on the road, the Ravens gave the Bears sole possession of first place in the NFC North. The gesture did not go unnoticed.
Justin Tucker had one of the best games you will ever see from a placekicker. He connected on all six of his field goal attempts, including a 61-yarder with 38 seconds left that lifted his team to victory. After the game, Tucker shouted out his fantasy owners. While he was doing that, several Bears players were shouting out Tucker on Twitter.
Does anyone know where Justin Tucker lives? I'm sending him a gift.

If not for Tucker’s incredible night, the Ravens would have fallen two games behind the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North. That’s all they’re thinking about, but ’tis the time of year when players become fans of guys they would normally call opponents. Because of tight divisional races and fantasy football, Tucker woke up on Tuesday morning as one of the most loved and hated men in America.
