Ravens squeeze past Bengals in overtime
BALTIMORE — Justin Tucker kicked a 46-yard field goal with 5:27 left in overtime, and the Baltimore Ravens beat the Cincinnati Bengals 20-17 Sunday after blowing a 17-point halftime lead and giving up a touchdown on the final play of regulation.
The tense victory ended a three-game skid for the Ravens (4-5) and thrust them into a second-place tie in the division, just one game behind Cincinnati (6-4) in the loss column. It was the defending Super Bowl champions' first victory since Oct. 6.
The Bengals have lost two straight in overtime.
Cincinnati pulled even when A.J. Green caught a desperation pass from Andy Dalton for a 51-yard touchdown. Green positioned himself behind the pack and caught the ball after it flicked off the hand of Ravens safety James Ihedigbo, who earlier had the first two interceptions of his career.
