Play

The Bengals had just converted a crucial third down with a 12-yard pass from quarterback Carson Palmer to receiver Chad Johnson. On the next play, Palmer (9) dropped back and threw deep for Johnson (85), who got behind the Ravens' Chris McAlister (21). Johnson caught the ball at the 8-yard line, while McAlister complained that Johnson pushed off. Safety Chad Williams (49) came over to bring down Johnson at the 4-yard line. Three plays later, Palmer connected with Chris Henry for a touchdown to give the Bengals a 21-9 lead.

Aftermath

The Ravens had one more possession and reached the Bengals' 4-yard line before sputtering.
