The Ravens put the Bengals in a big hole in the fourth quarter. And without A.J. Green, Andy Dalton's comeback bid failed.
Once more, Andy Dalton found himself and the Cincinnati Bengals down late in a game and embarked on an improbable comeback. But this time, without A.J. Green, the Bengals fell short against the Ravens, who got a 31-24 win that brought them back to the top of the AFC North.
Dalton threw for 373 yards, a career high, but also threw three interceptions. Cedric Benson ran for 41 yards and two touchdowns for the Bengals, who scored the game's last 10 points but could not erase the 31-14 lead Baltimore took early in the fourth quarter.
The win makes Baltimore 7-3 on the season; the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the AFC North lead. Cincinnati falls to 6-4 with the loss.
