In the 3rd, Bengals CB Darqueze Denard returns a tipped pass to Moore 89 yards for a TD, but RB Alex Collins runs it in from 17 yards out to make it 24-17. Tucker boots a 34 yard FG & WR Mike Wallace hauls in a 6 yard TD pass from Flacco to give the Ravens the lead in the 4th. However, needing just 1 more stop to win, Dalton finds WR Tyler Boyd on a 49 yard TD pass on 4th & 12 w/ :44 seconds left to rip out the Ravens hearts.
