Final: Ravens 20, Bengals 17
The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday to save their season and move closer in the AFC North race.
Baltimore got things started in a big way after a fourth-down stop as quarterback Joe Flacco led the team down the field before hooking up with tight end Dallas Clark to give the Ravens an early lead. The Ravens would add a field goal on their next drive.
It took Cincinnati nine drives, but the team finally manged to reach the red zone on its opening drive of the third quarter. They only a managed a field goal there, but rookie back Giovani Bernard found the end zone in the fourth quarter to bring the Bengals within seven points.
Cincinnati then shocked the Ravens with two seconds left in the game on a Hail Mary attempt, as A.J. Green brought it down to tie the game and force overtime.
Baltimore would prevail in overtime after a failed fourth-down conversion from the Bengals gave the Ravens a chance.
