The second TD Dalton threw was a 16-yard TD pass to Marvin Jones that gave Cincinnati a 17-6 halftime lead:
The second touchdown gave Dalton 33, breaking Carson Palmer’s single-season franchise record for most touchdowns in a single-season. It also gave Marvin Jones 10 scores on the season, marking the first time that two Bengals players got double-digit TDs in a single-season.
That score gave the Bengals a 17-6 lead going into halftime, and everyone was feeling great about Cincy getting win No. 11 and remaining undefeated at home:
But an 11-0 spurt by the Ravens in the third-quarter tied going into the fourth-quarter.
But the offense would rebound and take a 10-point lead, and this personal foul penalty of James Ihedigbo on Marvin Jones helped the Bengals earn a first-and-goal opportunity that could have been the final dagger:
With the Bengals leading by 10 against the Baltimore Ravens and they have the ball on the 1-yard line, you’d figure the Bengals would hand it off to BenJarvus Green-Ellis or Gio Bernard, right….?
Not so, as Dalton would throw his fourth INT of the game.
