With the Ravens nipping at their heels in the standings, the Cincinnati Bengals traveled to Baltimore looking to increase their lead in the AFC North.
The Bengals came out of the gate in a hurry as Andy Dalton found A.J. Green deep on the very first play of the game.
But a Chris Canty sack would stall the Cincinnati drive as they were forced to settle for a field goal attempt.
The kick was easily placed between the uprights by Mike Nugent, giving the Bengals a quick 3-0 lead.
