CINCINNATI (AP) -- Instead of bringing the Baltimore Ravens down, the young guys are giving them some late-season hope.
It's a mental obstacle more than anything else. The Bengals' organization is in a serious funk, and I'm not sure what can get them out of it. They need someone like a Michael Vick to get them back on track psychologically.
Question on the Ravens: What's your impression of their young players this season?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Williams' interception return matched the Ravens record. Chris McAlister also returned one 98 yards against the Jets in 2000. ... Lewis went over 1,000 yards for the second time in his career. He had 1,364 as a rookie in 2000 but missed last season with a torn knee ligament. ... Ravens rookie WR Javin Hunter played but didn't catch a pass. He confirmed that he tested positive for ephedra early in the season, but he has appealed his four-game suspension. ... Dillon became the fourth player to top 1,000 yards rushing in each of his first six seasons. Barry Sanders, Eric Dickerson and Curtis Martin also did it. ... Bengals S Lamont Thompson sprained his neck in the second half.
