DETROIT (AP) — Justin Tucker’s career-long 61-yard field goal with 38 seconds left lifted the Baltimore Ravens to an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in a Monday night matchup with major playoff implications.

Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam sealed the victory with an interception — Matthew Stafford’s third of the night.

Stafford threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Joseph Fauria with 2:21 left, putting Detroit ahead 16- 15. But the Lions were unable to make a 2-point conversion and couldn’t prevent Baltimore from setting up its sensational kicker for his sixth field goal of the game and 33rd in a row.

The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens (8-6) are in control of an AFC wild card following their fourth straight win.

Detroit (7-7) has hurt its playoff chances by losing four of its last five.

The Ravens led 9-7 at halftime before Tucker connected from 49 yards for his 31st consecutive field goal. David Akers answered with a 40-yarder for Detroit later in the third quarter.

Reggie Bush ran for a 14-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but the Ford Field crowd quieted down after that. Stafford was 11 of 20 for 131 yards and an interception through three quarters, hurt by a pair of uncharacteristic drops by Calvin Johnson.

Johnson did have two catches for eight yards in the first half, becoming the first player to reach 5,000 yards receiving in a threeseason span. He then added a couple more catches in the third quarter.
