Aaron Rodgers thanks Justin Tucker

Justin Tucker and the Ravens returned to Baltimore to a hero’s welcome. A Legatron > Megatron billboard is posted in Charm City and hundreds (thousands?) of fans flocked to Tuck’s autograph signing at White Marsh mall on Tuesday night.

However, no one was more appreciative of Tucker’s outstanding effort against the Lions than Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

“I’d like to thank Justin Tucker off the top here for his performance last night,” Rodgers said to open his ESPN Milwaukee radio show. “Unbelievable. That 61-yarder was amazing. I didn’t quite get the three previous plays, but wow.

Tucker’s six field goal performance secured the victory for the Ravens. The Lions loss also helped keep the Green Bay Packers playoff hopes alive with two games left in the 2013 regular season.

If the Pack beats the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday and the Chicago Bears in week 17, they’ll win the NFC North.
