    Baltimore, MD (AP) - This game by far could have been game of the week to the start of a new NFL season. This game was full of offense, defense, and special teams. AJ Green was definitely the MVP of this game.

    This game started out as a defensive battle with the score being 3-0 Bengals on top. The Bengals took a 10-0 lead with Benjarvis Green-Ellis 1-yard touchdown.
    At the end of the half, the Bengals had the lead 10-3.


    The third quarter was quiet, no teams scoring but definitely brought their defenses to play.

    The 4th quarter came along and the offense and special teams came to play, it was like watching a boxing match. The Ravens would score on a 69-yard slant to Torrey Smith and right after that Brandon Tate would take a 103-yard kickoff return. With 2 minutes left in the game, Bengals up 24-17 all the Bengals would have to do run the clock out, and guess what happens... Benjarvis fumbles the ball and Ray Lewis recovers the ball. 50 seconds left the Raves would go and score a touchdown by a Anquan Boldin back corner jump ball catch.

    Andy Dalton walks on the field looking confident without any timeouts needs to drive the field 76 yards. Well he did lead the comeback and with his accomplice AJ Green they scored with 4 seconds left in the game and that was the ball game. AJ Green finished with 15 receptions, 276 yards and 2 touchdowns. After the game, we asked AJ how was he so effective this game and he replied, " They gave me a 10 yard space so I gave Andy the signal and he changed it up, I'm just happy we rallied back as a team and won." Coach John Madden in the media room said, " We had a great game on all sides of the ball, if we keep playing like this who knows what can happen. Sky's the limit." Ravens Future Hall of Fame LB Ray Lewis said after the game, " We fought hard, we gave our team the best chance to win and we came up short, we have to get ready for next week."
