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.
