Final: Bengals 34, Ravens 17

The Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Baltimore Ravens at Paul Brown Stadium in Week 17 to stay alive in hunt for the No. 2 seed in the AFC. For Baltimore, the loss means the end of its slim chances at the postseason.

After two interceptions that led to Baltimore field goals, Cincinnati finally got on the board via a 53-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to A.J. Green to make it 7-6. Dalton later found Marvin Jones to make it 17-6 late in the second quarter.

Baltimore then made things interesting in the third quarter with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Marlon Brown, which was followed by a successful two-point conversion by Ray Rice to knot things up at 17.

But Dalton and the Bengals responded in the fourth quarter with a rushing touchdown from the TCU product to take back the lead. Cincinnati then put the game out of reach via a Dre Kirkpatrick interception return for a touchdown.
