Bengals nominations for player of the game against the Ravens

Nominating players for MVP during Cincinnati's 34-17 win over the defending Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Dre Kirkpatrick: He wasn't great, but he had great moments. The pick-six in the fourth quarter gave the Bengals a two-possession lead and eventual 34-17 win. Kirkpatrick had another interception earlier in the fourth quarter but was ridiculed for it. It was fourth and ten from midfield with 7:57 remaining in the fourth. Had he knocked it down, the Bengals offense would have taken over at midfield. Instead they began at their own 16-yard line. Kirkpatrick saw 11 targets and allowed five completions.

Marvin Jones: Caught five passes for 61 yards receiving. But those receptions either led to a first down or a touchdown -- and that touchdown was a ridiculous diving reception that gave Cincinnati a 17-6 lead at the two minute warning in the first half.

Chris Crocker: Along with generating a quarterback sack on third down that forced Baltimore to punt, Crocker also converted a Michael Johnson batted ball for an interception that led to a Mike Nugent 38-yard field goal and a 27-17 lead early in the fourth.

Michael Johnson: As previously stated, Johnson deflected a Joe Flacco pass that led to a Chris Crocker interception. Johnson also recorded a shared sack and two hits on the quarterback.

Carlos Dunlap: Led the team with six pressures and two hits on the quarterback.

Andy Dalton: Despite throwing four interceptions, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton broke two single-season records -- yards passing and touchdowns. He threw two touchdowns and added a third on the ground.

Vontaze Burfict: Led the team with 14 tackles but struggling in the passing game, allowing 10 receptions for 73 yards (though most of us during garbage time).

Adam Jones: Targeted seven times and only allowed one reception -- faulted for the Marlon Brown touchdown reception. Jones also deflected two passes and added a special teams stop.
