Game Preview

A surprising playoff-implication Saturday hits Cincinnati when the Bengals host the Minnesota Vikings in a matchup of seven-win teams banking on big things from their backups.

The Vikings (7-6) are coming off a win in the lowest-scoring NFL game of the season, a 3-0 victory at Las Vegas.

Backup quarterback Nick Mullens replaced Josh Dobbs and led Minnesota on a 13-play, 56-yard drive that ended with a 36-yard Greg Joseph field goal with two minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
