While most of the excitement took place in the fourth quarter between the Bengals and Ravens, there were other big moments throughout the entire game. We run down the list of some of the biggest in Cincinnati's 28-24 win in Baltimore. Cast your vote and sound off in the comments!

Andy Dalton 18-yard Touchdown Pass to Marvin Jones: Early in the second quarter, the Ravens had the ball back with the Bengals clinging to a 7-0 lead. After an Adam Jones interception of Joe Flacco, Dalton took over at the 30-yard line. After a defensive pass interference penalty against the Ravens, Dalton fit a touchdown to Jones in a tight window to put the Bengals ahead 14-0.

A.J. Green's 80-yard Touchdown: Things looked pretty bleak after C.J. Mosley returned a Dalton fumble for a score to give Baltimore a 17-14 lead. However, Dalton and Green had other things in mind. On the first play from scrimmage after the fumble return, Dalton threw a strike to Green near midfield and he took it the rest of the way after breaking multiple Ravens would-be tacklers.

Marvin Jones' 31-yard One-Handed Catch on Game-Winning Drive: After the Ravens took the lead again on a Steve Smith touchdown (which also set a Ravens team record with 13 receptions in a game), the Bengals once again were up against the wall. Dalton was surgical on the drive that began with just 3:56 on the clock. After hitting Giovani Bernard for a 23-yard dump-off and Mohamed Sanu for another 19 yards, Dalton dropped back and threw a deep jump ball to Jones. The wide receiver inexplicably came down with a one-handed catch to set the Bengals up at Baltimore's 7-yard for the subsequent game-winning score.

Dalton-to-Green 7-yard Game-Winning Touchdown: After the three big plays on their drive, Dalton and Green just couldn't be stopped. After poorly under-throwing a back pylon fade to Green earlier that was intercepted by Jimmy Smith, Dalton threw an impeccable one to Green after he beat the defensive back. It ended up being the game-winning score.
