    Instant classic that featured to great run defenses. The bengals swarmed the whole day forcing Adrian Peterson into a terrible start in season 4. AP would touch the ball 21 times via the carry and he would only come away with 64 yards and a fumble on the day. The main reason for his terrible day way Rey Maualuga he would have 11 tackles 3 TFL, Reggie Nelson 9 tackles and a Deflection. However the player of the game was Mychal Kendricks he made 2 huge impact plays. The first play was a forced fumble on AP. In overtime he would break up the pass attempt on 3rd and 24 that Romo threw on the money to Rudolph.

    The game went like this. Bengals drive down and would be forced to punt after 2 straight sacks. Then a great punt would put the Vikings inside the 10. The Vikings would drive 90 yards for a TD. This drive would end the 1st quarter as both players had long drives

    The bengals would answer with a great 3 and out. Then the Vikings would go 3 and out. The Bengals would drive and then come up with a FG. Then a fumble by Adrian Peterson would give the Bengals hope as they would go down and score. Setting them up 10-7. The Vikings again would be forced to punt as the Bengals continued playing tough defense this time with an interception by Bowman. The Bengals would score another TD giving them a 17-7 lead. The Vikings would go on a run though. They would score 17 straight points to take the lead from the Bengals. 24-17 Vikings lead. The Bengals would run the 2 minute drill to tie the game up with 30 seconds left. After some clutch catches by Dez Bryant and Rookie WR Richard who might of been the offensive player of the game. The bengals would force a 3 and out and a punt. They would get in FG range however they would miss the 56 yard FG wide Right.

    The Bengals would kick off to the Vikings in OT. The Vikings would go 3 and out with the help of a timely holding penalty. The Bengals would drive right down and answer with a FG. Dez Bryant would make a 27 yard catch and run as he broke a tackle setting the Bengals in great position to win the game. A run by the FB and a FG was the out come.

    Tough breaks both ways. Game just flipped to me in the end when my OL started blocking your 2 man rush
