This was a not a game for the faint of heart, but Cincinnati had enough heart to pull through.

The Bengals and Ravens would never say die in the fourth quarter of one of the best games the two teams have played in recent memory.

The fireworks got started with six minutes left in the final quarter on 3rd-and-14. Joe Flacco scrambled out of the pocket and found a wide open Steve Smith open down the field, and he juked out Adam Jones to take it into the end zone for the 80-yard score.

The Bengals fell behind 16-15 after leading for the entire game. At that point, Baltimore had all the momentum, were leading at home and it seemed the Bengals were folding.

Someone must have gotten down and prayed to A.J. Green, because he once again played the role of 'savior' in a seemingly hopeless scenario.

The Bengals were able to hold on after that for the 23-16 win. This was a not a game for the faint of heart, but Cincinnati had enough heart to pull through this time.
