Super Bowl Champs Eliminated

Super Bowl Champs Eliminated

(AP) Bengals eliminate Ravens with 34-17 win

Andy Dalton threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and set a pair of Bengals passing records on Sunday, leading Cincinnati to a 34-17 victory that eliminated the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

It was an erratic performance by the third-year quarterback, who threw four interceptions as well. The Bengals (11-5) head into the playoffs as AFC North champions.

The Ravens (8-8) lost their last two games, becoming the 15th Super Bowl champ that failed to reach the playoffs the following season and the sixth in the last 12 years.

In Cincinnati, there’s only one thing in mind: finally win a playoff game. The Bengals haven’t done that since the 1990 season, tied for the seventh-longest streak of futility in NFL history.

Most of the focus will be on Dalton, who broke Carson Palmer’s club records for touchdown passes and yards passing.
