The Cincinnati Bengals have extended their lead to 14-6, following an Emmanuel Lamur interception (which gave the Bengals the football back) and a Giovani Bernard touchdown.

Things have just gotten interesting.

Baltimore, who opened the second half with a 21-yard Kyle Juszczyk screen, had second down from their own 41-yard line with 13:54 remaining in the third. Quarterback Joe Flacco tries to squeeze the football to Torrey Smith but Emmanuel Lamur intercepts the pass and returns it five yards to the Bengals 49. It's Lamur's second interception of the season; his first was also against the Ravens in week one.

Sanu gained 26 yards on first down, reaching the Ravens 25-yard line. Cincinnati converted a third down two plays later, thanks to a defensive pass interference on an incomplete pass. Hue Jackson dialed Giovani Bernard's number twice, gaining 11 yards and reaching the Ravens three-yard line.

Following an ill-advised attempt to get Domata Peko into the flats for a touchdown reception, Giovani Bernard leapt over the goalline on third down to give Cincinnati a touchdown and 14-6 lead with 9:56 remaining in the third.
