Bengals take 27-17 lead on Chris Crocker pick and Mike Nugent field goal

The Cincinnati Bengals have scored on consecutive possessions to take a two-possession lead.

Talk about closing.

Andy Dalton throws three interceptions, and the Ravens scored points. Shawn Powell kicked a ten-yard football into the stands, and the Ravens tied the game at 17. Yet all of that mattered not when the Cincinnati Bengals responded to the Ravens game-tying touchdown with their own 90-yard touchdown drive to take a 24-17 lead with over 13 minutes remaining in the fourth.

On the first play of the Ravens ensuing possession, Michael Johnson batted down the football and Chris Crocker picked off the floater with a nine-yard return to the Bengals 20-yard line.

Unfortunately the Bengals couldn't gain a yard.

Instead, Mike Nugent converted the 38-yard field goal to give Cincinnati a two-possession lead, 27-17.
