Hockey call helps Bengals take back lead

Tripping? Really?

Ray Lewis committed a tripping penalty on a third-down play late in the third quarter, giving the Bengals a first down on what looked to be a drive-ending sack. Five plays later, Bengals kicker Mike Nugent booted a 46-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 9-7 lead.

Tripping isn't called often, but it was the right call, even though it didn't appear that Lewis tried to take down Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer with his feet intentionally.

Still, let's give props to the defense for limiting the damage after field position was flopped following Joe Flacco's second interception of the game. The Bengals could only muster 34 yards on the 13-play scoring drive, and the Ravens still haven't allowed a touchdown in 2010.
