It's been a couple years now, but Baltimore Ravens fans don't likely forget the vicious cheap shot Kiko Alonso laid on Joe Flacco. The ensuing brawl was famous for including Ravens head coach John Harbaugh needing to be held back by the referees, but Justin Tucker's toughness was on display as well.

It's not obvious in the first view, but in the alternate replay angles, Tucker's toughness shows. The kicker is right up in Alonso's face alongside Harbaugh. That's a kicker listed at 6-foot-1 and 183 pounds up in the face of a linebacker listed at 6-foot-3 and 239 pounds.

Tucker is already a fan favorite for being one of the greatest kickers in league history, being named a first-team All-Pro three times in his nine-year career, but his attitude earns him an especially big spot in Ravens fans hearts.

This is a team known for their grit and toughness, and that clearly runs through all 53 men on the roster.
