Two Bengals possessions have led to two field goals for the Ravens, who had a 6-0 lead with two minutes remaining in the first quarter. Cincinnati established their third possession at their own 22-yard line after a Brandon Tate 28-yard kickoff return. After a series of aggressive runs by BenJarvus Green-Ellis, the Bengals have second down from their own 47-yard line with :26 seconds remaining in the first.

Dalton took the snap from backup center Trevor Robinson, watching as A.J. Green put together this move called "running faster than all of you" and crushed the coverage by at least five yards. Dalton completed the 53-yard touchdown to give Cincinnati a 7-6 lead.

That was Dalton's 32nd touchdown of the season, tying Carson Palmer for most in a single season in franchise history.
