But NFL fans wondered if officials missed an illegal block in the back as Ravens tight end Mark Andrews tried to track down Hubbard. Andrews made a valiant effort to try and tackle Hubbard but couldn’t as Markus Bailey pushed him out of the way.

It appeared Bailey may have blocked Andrews in the side, but some fans were looking for a penalty.

Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley was rolling in the fourth quarter before his fumble. He had a touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson to tie the game at 17 and looked set to put his team ahead after a 25-yard run that brought the team within 2 yards of a touchdown .

He was met by Logan Wilson on the goal line and the linebacker pushed the ball.

It was the longest breakaway return in playoff history.

Hubbard had four tackles and a quarterback hit in the game. Wilson finished with 10 tackles and a forced fumble. The play allowed Cincinnati to score a touchdown and an extra point with about 11:39 left in the game.
