Bengals vs. Ravens 2013 final score: Andy Dalton struggles in overtime loss, 20-17

The Cincinnati Bengals' up-and-down day almost secured a win, but the offense faltered in overtime.

The Cincinnati Bengals traveled to Baltimore needing to secure a win over the Ravens and extend their lead in the AFC North. Instead they leave Sunday afternoon with an overtime loss, 20-17.

Andy Dalton struggled with swirling winds in M&T Bank Stadium and was on pace for one of the worst games of his career until A.J. Green bailed him out on a last-second Hail Mary throw. He finished 24-for-51 throwing for 274 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. His passer rating of 52.3 was one of his worst in 2013, and wide receiver Marvin Jones caught one pass for two yards, just two weeks after catching four touchdowns.

The Bengals defense did enough to keep the team in Sunday's game outside of a few costly first-quarter penalties. Baltimore managed just 189 yards of total offense, while Joe Flacco was unremarkable himself -- finishing with two interceptions and a lost fumble.

Ray Rice continued his disappointing 2013 season. The normally-reliable Ravens running back has been terrible in 2013, running for 259 yards entering Sunday's game. Against the Bengals, he was held to just 30 yards rushing and once again failed to make an impact. Offensive line play is part of the problem, but Rice isn't helping and looks to have lost his burst.

Injury report

Haloti Ngata injured his leg in the first quarter, but was able to return for Baltimore.

Ravens left guard A.Q. Shipley left in the second half and did not return.

Fantasy studs and duds

A.J. Green had an excellent game after a rough start to finish with 151 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Ray Rice struggled once again and owners will regret taking him with a top pick.
