Bengals Vs. Ravens: Ed Reed Drives A Nail In The Coffin With A Pick Six

As Andy Dalton and the Bengals attempted to respond from the Ravens' latest touchdown, they continued to dig their grave and handed the Ravens the shovel to bury them. On a third-and-long play, Andy Dalton dropped back. Feeling pressure in the pocket he floated a pass to Jermaine Gresham. That pass was well over Gresham's head and even though the Bengals tight end got a finger on it, the ball landed right in future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed's lap.

Reed returned the interception down the left sideline and ended up scoring a touchdown on a 32-yard return. This was Reed's 58th regular season interception and his seventh regular season touchdown. The Bengals are now down by a score of 34-13 and the game is officially out of hand (it has been for a while now).

The Bengals will need nothing short of a miracle to pull this one off in Baltimore.
