The Ravens intercepted Andy Dalton three times, turning two into touchdowns, and stopped the rookie quarterback on a final drive to tie Pittsburgh for first place in the AFC North.
Dalton's last two interceptions -- one late in the third quarter and another early in the fourth -- both led to Ravens touchdowns on the next play for a 31-14 lead.
The Bengals scored 10 unanswered points and had 1st-and-goal on the seven-yard line on their last drive, but Dalton threw incomplete three times and was sacked on fourth down.
Baltimore (7-3) played without linebacker Ray Lewis for the first time since 2007 because of a toe injury and tied the idle Steelers atop the tight division.
Cincinnati (6-4) was missing talented rookie receiver A.J. Green (knee) but Dalton threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell during a fourth- quarter rally.
