The Ravens weren't the only team to get excited about Justin Tucker's 61-yard field goal against Detroit on Monday, the Chicago Bears got pretty excited too.

Tucker's 61-yard kick sealed the win for Baltimore and dropped the Lions to 7-7 on the season, giving Chicago sole possession of first place in the NFC North.

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs reacted like most Ravens fans did:

Safety Anthony Walters wants to send Tucker something for Christmas:

Defensive tackle Henry Melton, who's out for the season with a torn ACL, took to Twitter to show support for Tucker, a fellow Texas Longhorn:

Cornerback Tim Jennings showed some admiration for Tucker's leg and used a lot of exclamation marks to do it:

With the Lions loss, the Bears can win the NFC North by winning their final two games. Chicago could also win the division on Sunday with a win over Philadelphia and losses by Detroit and Green Bay. The Packers host the Steelers and the Lions host the Giants.

The NFC North could also come down to Week 17 when Chicago hosts Green Bay at Soldier Field.
