Ravens fans giddy from Justin Tucker's stunning last-minute, third-longest game-winning field goal in the history of the NFL, got a treat while on the road today.

Billboards along 95, 895 and I-83 proclaim "Legatron > Megatron" and "In Tucker we Trust"  in celebration of the Ravens' victory 18-16 over the Detroit Lions.

Clear Channel Outdoor posted the messages this morning to the electronic billboards they own.  

Twitter users reacted with delight, especially to the Legatron board. FYI, for those who aren't football fans, "Legatron" is a nickname that honors Tucker's powerful kicking skills. "Megatron" is a nickname for Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

"The billboard in Baltimore says: Legatron > Megatron Now ain't that the truth!!" wrote @BlissCoachPJ.

Said @ang_a_can: "Just passed a billboard that stated "Legatron > Megatron" and I may have laughed out loud. Love my city sometimes #TuckerTime #money."
