The Lamar Jackson-less Baltimore Ravens were inches away from taking a fourth-quarter lead over the Cincinnati Bengals.
And then disaster struck.
On a third-and-goal from Cincinnati's 1-yard line, Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley was stripped by Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson while attempting to reach the ball over the goal line on a sneak.
The ball fell right into the arms of Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard, who returned it 98 yards for a touchdown to send the crowd at Paycor Stadium into a frenzy.

Instead of Baltimore going ahead, it was the Bengals who grabbed a 24-17 fourth-quarter lead.
Hubbard's scoop-and-score was the longest fumble return touchdown in NFL playoff history.
It also proved to be the score that pushed Cincy through to the divisional round, as the Bengals held on for a 24-17 win over their AFC North rivals.
