Ravens capitalize on Bengals’ errors, tie game at 17

Here come the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Ravens, who trailed 17-6 at halftime, have scored 11 consecutive points to tie the game at 17 through three quarters.

Three third-quarter mistakes by Cincinnati proved costly. First, quarterback Andy Dalton was picked by Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb, setting up a Baltimore field goal. Then, Bengals punter Shaun Powell mishit a punt that traveled just 10 yards, giving Baltimore great field position. The Ravens cashed in, with quarterback Joe Flacco hitting Marlon Brown for an eight-yard TD to cut the lead to 17-15.

On the ensuing two-point try, Bengals safety Chris Crocker was penalized for holding, giving Baltimore another try after an incomplete pass. The Ravens capitalized, with tailback Ray Rice rushing around left end to tie up the game.

    The “depending” Super Bowl champions? What does that depend on? Them winning the Super Bowl?

    Dalton blows chunks.

    Green and Bernard need to offset the stink of the Red Sausage.

    Dalton trying his best to keep the Rats in the game…

    Yeah… every NFL quarterback has Dalton’s mobility.

    That’s why he didn’t totally fake out baltimore’s defense and sneak into the endzone for the go-ahead touchdown.

    Dalton’s skill is bi-polar

    A.J. Green has amazing talent… but… he runs lazy routes.

    Play football… don’t just wait for life to happen.

    You had the corner three yards deep.

    Turn around.

    Honestly, after 5 straight seasons of making the playoffs, my heart, and my nerves could use a break. Our Super Bowl victory will still hold me over to next season. Good luck AFC!!

    playoffs on the line and elite Jump Ball Joe tosses 3 picks and has a 3.9 YPA.

    enjoy paying out the rest of that absurd contract, Ozzie “GOAT” Newsome.

    Frustrated sniping at Dalton from a guy whose team hasn’t had a decent QB in 11 years and will be 53-123 over that time once Denver embarrasses them tonight.
