Green’s first-half heroics helped stake the Cincinnati Bengals to a 28-14 lead over the Baltimore Ravens at halftime which the team was able to preserve despite some subpar play in the second half.
Quarterback Andy Dalton threw four touchdown passes in the first half – three to Green – but was held without a score in the second half as the Ravens made a run, at one point closing to within 28-23.
However, the Ravens didn’t get any closer to winning after safety Shawn Williams forced a Joe Flacco fumble during a sack while the Ravens were driving to effectively seal the game.
