Bengals beat Ravens 23-17

By

CINCINNATI -- Carlos Dunlap returned an interception 14 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday, sending the Cincinnati Bengals to a 23-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens in a game that didn't much matter to either playoff-bound team.

The Ravens (10-6) had already clinched their second straight AFC North title, putting them in line to host a game next weekend.

The Bengals (10-6) were locked into the sixth seed as the final wild-card team. The only question was who they would play in the opening round, and that wouldn't be answered until games were completed later in the day.

So, they went into preseason mode on a 26-degree afternoon with a wind chill of 16.

The Ravens let quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice play only two series. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and receiver A.J. Green sat out the second half.
