Cincinnati Bengals keep Baltimore Ravens out of playoffs

Bills lose McCoy to injury

As a result, Baltimore was eliminated from postseason contention, vaulting the Bills into the AFC's second wild-card spot. Perhaps the Bengals' players will get fired up one last time for Lewis, who will step down as head coach after today.

Trailing again by two TDs, Baltimore faced a fourth-and-3 from the Cincinnati 17. Plenty of players stepped up in their time of need: Chris Moore had a pivotal kickoff return, Alex Collins delivered a huge fourth-down touchdown run and quarterback Joe Flacco bounced back from a frightful 4-for-18 start.

The Ravens then forced another three-and-out, putting a exhausted Bengals defense right back on the field. The Bengals scored on a fourth-and-12 when Andy Dalton hooked up with Tyler Boyd for a 49-yard score with 53 seconds remaining.

The show was broadcasted on ABC since the 1975 edition when Dick Clark took over as host . "Last year wasn't as planned". Imagine Dragons, Britney Spears , Nick Jonas , Kelly Clarkson and Shawn Mendes are among those slated to perform.

Flacco's 6-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace made it 27-24, but all of that was rendered meaningless after Dalton put an appropriate finish on a game filled with huge plays.

After the Bengals' Randy Bullock made a 32-yard field goal, Moore returned the ensuing kickoff 87 yards to the Bengals 8. But even if the Ravens lost, they would still qualify for the postseason as long as either the Tennesee Titans or the Bills lost their matchups on Sunday. Cincinnati had 16 first downs while the Ravens had just two. The Ravens and Bengals will have met in Week 17 seven of the past eight years, but this will be the first time it's happened in Baltimore since 2011. However, Dalton led a nine-play, 72-yard drive that ended with him hitting a wide-open Kroft for a 5-yard touchdown.
