+ Bengals Week 13 Come From Behind Win Over Baltimore (12.5.2004). Down by 17 points entering the fourth quarter, the Bengals were well on their way to losing their seventh game during a season highlighted as Carson Palmer's first as the team's regular starting quarterback. The Baltimore Ravens muffed a Kyle Larson punt at their own 19-yard line with 28 seconds remaining. Thus begins the journey as the Bengals greatest point-differential comeback during the Marvin Lewis era.

Two plays after B.J. Sams muffed Larson's punt, Palmer connects with Chad Johnson on a 13-yard touchdown. Now the 17-point deficit is down to ten. After Baltimore goes three-and-out, the Bengals drive 76 yards on five plays, capped by a Chad Johnson 12-yard touchdowns. Bengals down by three.

No, no. Chester Taylor explodes for a 47-yard run.

Damn it, Jack Bauer says. Bengals defense bends, but doesn't break, not allowing Baltimore another first down and forcing a Matt Stover 38-yard field goal with over eight minutes left in the game. The Bengals drive 68 yards on on six plays, taking a 24-23 lead on a nine-yard pass to T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

After Baltimore's Matt Stover converted a 45-yard field goal to retake the lead with 1:44 left in the game, Carson Palmer and the Bengals drove 60 yards on eight plays, setting up for a Shayne Graham 24-yard attempt with only two seconds left in the game. It's up, it's good. Bengals win 27-26.

During the Bengals fourth quarter comeback, Carson Palmer completed 10 of 12 passes for 200 yards passing and three touchdowns.
