Clark's 1-Yard Touchdown

The Ravens talked all week about starting fast and playing with a lead, and that's exactly what they did in the first quarter. With the assistance of a 48-yard pass interference penalty, the Ravens moved into Bengals territory and scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to tight end Dallas Clark. Flacco rolled outside the pocket to shake off a defender and extend the play, and then Clark found an open spot in the back of the end zone for the score. 

Ihedigbo Gets First Interception

Strong safety James Ihedigbo came into Sunday with 77 career games, but he'd never had an interception. That changed in the second quarter, as quarterback Andy Dalton sailed a pass over the middle of the field and right into Ihedigbo's chest. Ihedigbo hauled in the interception and cut upfield to put the Ravens offense in great position.

T. Smith's 7-Yard Touchdown

The Ravens built up a 17-0 lead in the second quarter when Flacco connected with Torrey Smith on a 7-yard touchdown over the middle of the field. Smith took a big hit from safety Reggie Nelson, but he was still able to make the catch to give the Ravens* *a three-score lead. 

Webb Picks Off Dalton

The Ravens defense got to Dalton again in the second half, as cornerback Lardarius Webb wrestled the football away from wide receiver Marvinn Jones. Webb jumped the route, and then tied up Jones and won a battle for the football. The interception was Webb's first of the year after coming back from the torn ACL that ended his 2012 season. 

Ihedigbo Gets Dalton Again

After picking off Dalton once, Ihedigbo got the best of him again with an interception in the fourth quarter. Free safety Matt Elam deflected the pass intended for A.J. Green, and then Ihedigbo came up with the tipped ball for an interception. At the time, the interception appeared to seal the victory for the Ravens. 

Hail Mary Ends Regulation

After the Ihedigbo interception, the Ravens ended up having to punt the ball back to Cincinnati to give them one final chance to send the game to overtime. With two seconds remaining, the Bengals had one last chance to tie the game with a heave to the end zone. Dalton threw a bomb into a group of players at the goal line, and the pass deflected off two players. Ihedigbo then tipped the ball straight up in the air. Ihedigbo called the play a "bonehead move," as Green made an easy catch in the back of the end zone. The play left the Ravens temporarily stunned before they had to regroup for overtime. 

Tucker's Game-Winning Field Goal

The Bengals started with the ball in overtime, but the Ravens defense stopped them on fourth down and gave the offense a chance to win it. After a pair of first downs, kicker Justin Tucker lined up for a 46-yard field goal to win the game. He drilled the kick through the uprights for this fifth career game winner, and ended the Ravens three-game skid.
