Vikings vs. Bengals: Everything we know

By Jack White

This offseason, Minnesota added a plethora of free agents on one-year deals in hopes of staying in a playoff window.

On Sunday, that’s exactly what the Vikings looked like — a team of new signings that have not played a lot together.

Minnesota committed costly penalties, Dalvin Cook fumbled with the team driving in overtime and the new-look defense got beat by a team that was 4-11 in 2020. Overall, the Vikings made too many mistakes in a game they could have easily won and instead, it was the Bengals who made the game-winning field goal in overtime to pull off the upset.
