NFL: Baltimore Ravens Beat Cincinnati Bengals 20-17 in OT

The Baltimore Ravens squeaked by their AFC North division rivals, the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17 in overtime on Sunday. This, despite allowing a tipped touchdown catch to Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green with two seconds remaining in regulation.

The Baltimore Ravens, after squandering a 17-point, first-half lead, still managed to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-17 on Sunday. 

The Ravens had a one-touchdown lead at 17-10 with just two seconds left in regulation before Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton's 51-yard Hail Mary pass was deflected by several players scrambling for possession before the ball was tipped off Ravens safety James Ihedigbo's hands.

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught the ball iln the end zone and Cincinnati added the PAT to knot things up at 17 apiece. 

The Ravens seized control in overtime by marching the ball downfield, allowing Justin Tucker to nail a 46-yard field goal with 5:27 left to secure Baltimore's fourth win in nine games. 

Nobody was more relieved that Ihedigbo, who shouted,"Thank you, Lord" as he went to the dugout. 

His teammate, quarterback Joe Flacco, who went 20 for 36 for 140 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, was just as glad to have escaped with a nail-biting win.

"I don't know if this was exciting. It would have been more exciting if you were on Cincinnati's side. I don't know if it was more exciting as it was one of those ones where you go afterward,'Phew, I'm glad we won this one.'"

For his part, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh called it a "team victory."

"Team victory in so many ways. I think what it was all about in the end, and the thing I'm proud of as a coach, is the heart of our guys. I feel like they showed the heart of champions today. Where this leads us we will find out." 

Baltimore struck first with 9:42 remaining in the first quarter when tight end Dallas Clark caught Flacco's one-yard pass to put the Ravens up 7-0. Tucker added a field goal five minutes later while wide receiver Torrey Smith caught a seven-yard pass from Flacco with 6:30 to go in the second quarter to increase the margin to 17 at halftime. 

On the other hand, the Bengals finally broke their silence when Mike Nugent made a 32-yard field goal in the third quarter. It wasn't until 8:22 left in regulation when they scored their first touchdown of the game -- a Giovani Bernard 18-yard score off a screen pass from Dalton to trim the deficit to 17-10. 

This set the stage for the wild and wooly finish in the fourth quarter.

Cincinnati's chances of tying the game looked bleak when Elvis Dumervil sacked Dalton for a seven-yard loss on 2nd and 8 at the Ravens' 44-yard line. Dalton spiked the ball on third down to stop the clock before heaving the ball downfield to Green for the improbable touchdown. 

Dalton wound up with 274 yards, two touchdowns and three picks. Green, with his 151 receiving yards on eight receptions, had his fifth straight 100-yard receiving game, a team record. 

The Ravens will next face the Chicago Bears on the road on Nov. 17 while the Bengals, who slipped to 6-4, will take on their in-state and AFC North division rivals, the Cleveland Browns, at home on the same day.

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to struggle, the fantasy football players on the team are suffering as well. Doug Martin was considered a top option at running back coming into the year, but he has failed to top 50 rushing yards in any game.

Oct 11 2014 4:01pm CDT | Source: SBNation

I'm back with my Week 6 NFL picks against the spread. A rare undefeated week has bumped me to 14-11 in the SuperContest. Can I build on it, or will I get bounced back to an ugly reality? Just when I think I am never going to figure out the world of NFL gambling, Week 5 happens. Over the first four weeks of the 2014 NFL season, I bounced between 2-3 and 3-2 performances, and was sitting at 9-11 through the first quarter of t ...

Reggie Wayne has helped make Andrew Luck look like Peyton Manning. Is Wayne going to turn in a big game against the Texans for his fantasy owners?

He has 30 receptions on his 45 targets for a team-high 384 receiving yards to go with one touchdown. He's also caught 24 first downs and has caught at least three passes in every game.
