Bengals' AJ Green Catches 51-Yard Hail Mary for TD to Tie Game as Time Expires

It had been a rough offensive day against the Baltimore Ravens for quarterback Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals, but receiver A.J. Green came up with a 51-yard touchdown to tie the game on a miraculous Hail Mary that was batted up in the air.

Dalton had been sacked on second down and spiked the ball on third down to set up 4th-and-15. He heaved the ball toward the goal line, and it was tipped around before Green caught it in the middle of the end zone.

Here's another look:

The touchdown capped a 17-point rally by the Bengals and sent the game into overtime.

Despite the miraculous catch and wild comeback, Justin Tucker nailed a 46-yard field goal on Baltimore's first possession of overtime to give the Ravens a 20-17 victory over the Bengals.

Cincinnati leads the AFC North at 6-4, but Baltimore stayed alive and improved to 4-5.
