A near-miss could have changed the outcome of the Ravens' 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

On the very first play of the second quarter of a scoreless contest, Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer threw a pass intended for wide receiver Terrell Owens in the end zone. The ball was almost intercepted by Dawan Landry. Instead, Cincinnati had to settle for a 36-yard field goal by Mike Nugent.

Afterward, the Ravens strong safety said he should've made the play.

"T.O. ran a post," Landry recalled. "The ball was kind of thrown behind him, and so I broke on T.O. and the ball was kind of behind me also. I probably could've gotten two hands on the ball."

Asked how close he was to catching the ball and perhaps running it back for a touchdown, Landry said, "Real close. Should've caught it."
