Back-to-back sacks ended the Ravens' bid to stretch Sunday's season-opener against Cincinnati into overtime.
Needing a touchdown and extra point to tie the game late in the fourth quarter, Joe Flacco took sacks on third and fourth down, with Bengals defensive end Wallace Gilberry getting the first and sharing the second.
The Bengals were able to hold on 23-16 as a result.
Baltimore's offense struggled through the first three quarters before exploding in the fourth. Down 15-10, Flacco hit a streaking Steve Smith down the left sideline for an 80-yard touchdown. The subsequent two-point conversion attempt failed.
However, shortly after, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for a 77-yard touchdown, which turned out to be the game's deciding play.
The Ravens have a quick turnaround as they'll play Pittsburgh on Thursday.
