Sunday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals will not soon be forgotten.
Before this game, the Ravens were counted out by nearly every NFL pundit in the league, and they were 10-point underdogs coming into this game.
That was until this happened.

With the game tied 17-17, Huntley led the Ravens to the one-yard line, and it appeared that the tide was swayed in their favor.
However, Huntley tried to valiantly dive into the endzone, where the ball was punched out by Bengals’ defender, Sam Hubbard.
Hubbard ended the play by running this fumble back for a 98-yard touchdown, vaulting the Bengals ahead to a 24-17 lead, which ended up being the final score of this game.
Postgame, many have speculated that the Ravens likely would have won this contest if Jackson was the quarterback.
Hindsight is certainly 20/20, so they say.
Whatever the case, the Bengals are moving on this weekend to face off against the Buffalo Bills.
Earlier this season, the Bengals and Bills started a Monday Night Football game, but, because of Damar Hamlin‘s injury, that game was canceled.
We haven’t been able to watch both teams face off with fully healthy rosters, and this weekend’s matchup should be one for the ages, considering they have two of the AFC’s most elite rosters.
Who will win, and move on to the AFC Championship?
