The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 15 is Justin Tucker, whose six field goals accounted for all of the Ravens points in their 18-16 win over the Lions. The finale, obviously, was best of all – a 61-yard game-winner with less than a minute left. Not only was the game riding on that field goal (now the longest in Ravens history) but Baltimore’s playoff hopes. Also worth noting that Tucker hit field goals from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s range in the same night. Greg Zuerlein might have been called Legatron first last year, he also has the Greg The Leg nickname. I think it’s fair if Justin Tucker usurps it.

The Jeff George Memorial Least for Week 15 is Calvin Johnson. MEGALEAST! While the supposed beef between the Lions receiver and Ravens safety Matt Elam was mostly a media manufactured storyline, there was still a good deal of pressure on Calvin to have a big night against Baltimore to help propel Detroit to the postseason. Thanks to several drive-killing drops as well as another costly one on a two-point attempt late in the game, a Lions season that looked bound for the playoffs a month ago now is almost assuredly in the tank. Megatron has a lot of great performances in his career but not many chances to have them in significant games. He definitely didn’t come through this time.
Also considered: Tony Romo, Eli Manning, Patrick Peterson, Alfred Morris, Dre Kirkpatrick
