Minnesota Vikings Fall to Bengals in Cincinnati on Overtime Field Goal
CINCINNATI (AP) — Evan McPherson kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired in overtime to push the Cincinnati Bengals to a 27-24 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
The game-winning kick was set up by a gutsy call. On fourth-and-inches for the Bengals from their 48, Burrow rolled out and hit tight end C.J. Uzomah in stride on a crossing pattern for a 32-yard gain and get within range for McPherson.
Cincinnati’s Germaine Pratt recovered Dalvin Cook's fumble to set up the winning drive for Cincinnati. Greg Joseph kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal to force overtime for Minnesota.
The Vikings, now 0-1, travel to Phoenix to face the Arizona Cardinals next Sunday afternoon on FOX.
