There are few kickers in the NFL more clutch than Justin Tucker. The Baltimore Ravens kicker, in his second year out of Texas made 92% of his field goals last season and was voted the team's most valuable player.

However, Tucker today revealed on twitter that he got nervous about kicking a field goal in a video game.

"Played @JChap90 in Madden.. Of course we end up tied with 3 seconds left and I gotta make the FG to win. Never been so nervous haha #offseasonprobz"

Now, we all know how difficult it can be to nail those 50 yard attempts in Madden, having adjusting for wind and distance but you would have thought the man that kicked the Ravens to Super Bowl 47 would be above such nerves.

Tucker was a bright spark in what was a year of recession for the World Champion Ravens. He scored 140 points, up on his rookie season and missed just three field goal attempts. Tucker also got selected to his first Pro Bowl.

Ravens fans will be hoping that Tucker's nerves are gone by the start of the season when the real football action starts once more.
