The Ravens then forced another three-and-out, putting a exhausted Bengals defense right back on the field. The Ravens fully expect the Bengals to play the "spoiler role" and try to knock them out.

The Ravens knew that the best way to discourage a Bengals team that had nothing to play for was to get off to a fast start. The Ravens were extremely fortunate to go into the locker room trailing just 17-10, and they were that close only because of Moore's heroics in a 19-second span to close the second quarter.

After the Bengals' Randy Bullock made a 32-yard field goal, Moore returned the ensuing kickoff 87 yards to the Bengals 8.

The Seattle Seahawks selected him in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft before the Ravens picked him up in September. However, Dalton answered with a 90-yard drive to reclaim the lead.

The run, which came in the third quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals, covered 17 yards.
