Vikings have plenty to clean up after OT loss to Bengals

CINCINNATI (AP) – The Minnesota Vikings overcame a sloppy start to come back and tie the game. Then a huge mistake by their star running back doomed their chances in overtime. Dalvin Cook’s fumble was recovered by Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt to set up the game-winning score, a 33-yard field goal by Evan McPherson. It was a tough setback after Minnesota had battled back from a 21-7 second-half deficit despite a raft of penalties. The Vikings committed 12 for 116 yards. There was plenty of blame to go around. The Vikings will try to rebound next week at Arizona.
