Flea flicker fools Reed

The Bengals lit up safety Ed Reed on a 40-yard touchdown pass off a flea flicker on their first possession of the half. Reed was sucked in on a handoff, allowing T.J. Houshmandzadeh to get open deep for the pass. The Ravens' offense spent most of the quarter deep in their end with bad field position.

Scoring

Bengals: Houshmandzadeh 40 pass from Palmer (Graham kick), 11:25

4 -- BENGALS 13, RAVENS 7

TD is too little, too latePenalties continued to thwart the Ravens on offense. An intentional grounding call against Steve McNair killed one possession, and a holding penalty against center Mike Flynn foiled another. McNair connected with Derrick Mason for a 36-yard touchdown with 1:10 left, but the Bengals easily recovered the ensuing onside kick.

Scoring

Ravens: Mason 36 pass from McNair (Stover kick), 1:01
