Evan McPherson kicked a 29-yard field goal with 3:11 left in overtime as the Cincinnati Bengals came from behind to beat the Minnesota Vikings 27-24 on Saturday night.

Quarterback Jake Browning connected with Tyler Boyd for 44 yards on third-and-nine to move the ball to the Vikings’ 13-yard line to set up the game-winning kick for Cincinnati (8-6).

Before then Tee Higgins caught a pass at the Minnesota one-yard line, where he extended his arm to stretch the ball over the goalline while being tackled by Akayleb Evans for a 21-yard, game-tying touchdown with 39 seconds left in regulation.

Browning finished 29-for-42 passing for 324 yards, two touchdowns with one interception.

The Bengals rallied from deficits of 17-3 and 24-17 in the fourth quarter, scoring 21 points in 15 minutes to force overtime.

The hosts stopped Minnesota (7-7) on fourth-and-one at the Cincinnati 42 with 6:12 left in overtime, giving the Bengals, who had the ball to start the extra period, another chance to win the game.

Vikings quarterback Nick Mullens threw a pair of touchdown passes to Jordan Addison, who finished with six catches for 111 yards while Ty Chandler set up Minnesota’s go-ahead score in the fourth quarter with a 30-yard yard run.

Chandler finished with 132 yards on 23 carries and a 1-yard TD run.

The Bengals did not have the services of star receiver Ja’Marr Chase on Cincinnati’s game-tying drive, as he headed to the locker room with a right shoulder injury. He had four catches for 64 yards.

Before the 13-yard Browning-to-Higgins touchdown connection to open the fourth quarter, the Vikings hadn’t allowed a touchdown since Courtland Sutton’s game-winning score for Broncos at the end of the game on November 19 in Denver.

The Bengals started the scoring with a 34-yard Evan McPherson field goal for a 3-0 lead.

The Vikings then marched 75 yards in 12 plays for their first touchdown in three weeks, with the drive capped by a 1-yard run from Chandler with 2:23 left in the first quarter.

On the drive, the Bengals lost starting nose tackle DJ Reader to a right knee injury, as he was carted off with 7:46 left in the first quarter.

Later in the first quarter, the Bengals lost another defensive player to a knee injury as DJ Ivey was carted to the locker room with a left knee injury while covering a punt.

The Vikings came out of halftime and established a two-score lead when Mullens stood in during a heavy rush and found Addison over the middle. Addison turned it into a 37-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown and a 14-3 Minnesota lead.
