Did the Baltimore Ravens get an illegal practice kick before game-winning field goal?

Moments before kicking a game-winning 47-yard field goal to send his team to the AFC championship, Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took a practice kick on the field during a break in between the first and second overtime sessions in Denver.

While players milled around, waiting to restart the game following the expiration of the first 15 minutes of the extra session, Tucker was seen taking at least one warm-up kick. The impromptu practice drew protests from some Denver Broncos, including Champ Bailey, who can be seen questioning its fairness in the accompanying picture.

Turns out that taking on-field kicks is not an offense that brings a penalty. But, strangely, it's also not allowed.

They practice on field at the end of halftime. I figured this never happened before this game because during the break between 1st & 2nd/3rd & 4th quarters, you don't want to show your hand that you will be taking a field goal attempt. In OT, there is no doubt that you will.
