The Minnesota Vikings are seeking their fifth win of the season on the road today as they traveled to Cincinnati to take on the 9-5 Bengals.
Early on in the game, the struggling Vikings fell behind early, 7-0, to the Bengals after a Benjarvus Green-Ellis short-yardage touchdown run.
However, the Vikings wouldn’t quit that easily as they answered back in the first quarter.
Just a few minutes later, on the fourth play of the drive, Minnesota QB Matt Cassel scrambled to his right and found a wide open Jarius Wright down the sideline, who took it in for the 36-yard score to even things up at seven:
There’s a little bit more of that offense that doesn’t require Adrian Peterson tearing through defenses, which the Vikings have definitely needed for a long time.
This could also be a good example of what happens when a team that has nothing to play for takes on a contender. Some strange things happen in the NFL, so don’t count the Vikes out of this one yet.
