It appears the Ravens kicker will be Steve Hauschka.
Barring an unforeseen collapse, the second-year player has all but locked up Baltimore's kicking job by performing well through training camp and the first two preseason games. Hauschka created more distance between himself and rookie Graham Gano with a 42-yard field goal in the fourth quarter that proved to be the difference Monday in the Ravens' 24-23 victory over the New York Jets.
There is also the "Matt Stover factor." Perhaps as a ploy to motivate its kickers, Baltimore's coaching staff has not been shy to let the media know that the longtime Ravens kicker is always on call. Hauschka, so far, has handled the pressure well.
