FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Two of the NFL's best kickers will be on the field when the Ravens face the Patriots.

Justin Tucker goes into Sunday's game with a streak of 33 successful field goal attempts for Baltimore. And New England's Stephen Gostkowski leads the NFL in scoring.

Tucker is coming off an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in which he made all six of his kicks. His 61-yarder with 38 seconds left was the difference.

Gostkowski has three game-winning field goals this season.

Between them, they've made 67 of their 72 field goal attempts. On kicks of at least 50 yards, they're 11 of 13 this season.

The Patriots (10-4) can clinch their fifth straight AFC East title Sunday. The Ravens (8-6) have won four straight games.
