Though the Ravens edged the Bengals 20-17 in overtime, Green left an indelible mark on the AFC North matchup, catching eight passes for 151 yards. However, it was Green's heroics as the fourth quarter concluded that will reappear on highlight reels to come.

With two seconds on the clock and the Bengals on their own 49-yard line, Baltimore, clinging to a 17-10 lead, appeared headed for certain victory. But Dalton still had one last pebble in his slingshot, flinging the football toward a sea of hands at the goal line.

As the ball reached its destination, it caromed off a helmet before Ravens safety James Ihedigbo tipped it in the air. Almost serendipitously, Green was in the perfect position to pluck the ball out of the sky and land with both feet in the end zone. The ensuing extra point drew the Bengals even on the scoreboard, but their rally ultimately fell short.

Despite the setback, Cincinnati still sports a 6-3 record and sits atop the division.
