Top Wins During The Marvin Lewis Era: The Andre Caldwell Touchdown To Beat The Ravens

+ Bengals Comeback Win Against The Baltimore Ravens (October 11, 2009). In a shocking turn of events, the 2009 Cincinnati Bengals followed up a four-win season by claiming wins in three of their first four games. Then the Bengals traveled East for an October 11 meeting against the Baltimore Ravens, who lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers during the AFC Championship game in 2008. The game proved a defensive battle from the start.

Down 14-10 with 27 seconds remaining in the game, Carson Palmer takes a shotgun snap and finds Andre Caldwell over the middle with a gap in the seams. A fired rocket later and the Bengals take a 17-14 lead, winning the game that already equaled their 2008 win total of four games.

Bengals running back Cedric Benson posted 120 yards rushing (and a touchdown) while the Bengals defense held Baltimore's offense in check. Ray Rice only posted 69 yard rushing (though he did have 74 yards receiving) and Joe Flacco posted only 186 yards passing, throwing an interception to Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall each.
