BALTIMORE - Andy Dalton and A.J. Green came up with one of the most improbable plays of the Green-Dalton era when they hooked up with a stunning 77-yard touchdown pass with 4:58 left to give the Bengals a 23-16 win at M&T Bank Stadium on Opening Day.

BALTIMORE - Andy Dalton and A.J. Green came up with one of the most improbable plays of the Green-Dalton era when they hooked up with a stunning 77-yard touchdown pass with 4:58 left to give the Bengals a 23-16 win at M&T Bank Stadium on Opening Day.

Moments after falling behind for the first time all day, Green ran by safety Darian Stewart and Dalton hit him in stride at about the Ravens 30. But then Green, the world famous juggler, juggled it, then caught it again while skating past Stewart when he dodged one way and Stewart went the other.

And then Dalton, who had 301 yards passing at that point with a 90-plus passer rating, made a big throw to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu at the right pylon as muscled the ball away from cornerback Asa Jackson for the two-point conversion.

Then it was back to-back sacks on third down and fourth down in the red zone from Wallace Glberry and Reggie Nelson to seal it.
