(BALTIMORE) — The Baltimore Ravens (4-5) survived a Hail Mary touchdown to end the fourth quarter and sneaked out of M&T Bank Stadium with a 20-17 win over the Bengals (6-4) in overtime on Sunday.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton sailed a 51-yard pass that wound up in the hands of A.J. Green in the end zone after a couple Ravens batted the football up in the air to tie the game as time expired.
Cincinnati won the coin toss, but was unable to convert before Justin Tucker nailed a 46-yard field goal with 10:01 left in overtime to give Baltimore the win.
“The thing is I’m most proud of is the heart of our guys,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “They showed the heart of champions. Where this will lead us, we’ll find out.”
Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and two picks in the win and finished 20 of 36 for 140 yards.
“We’re not playing great right now,” Flacco admitted, “but we’re doing the best we can to win.”
