The Bengals (5-8) are scheduled to visit the Vikings (10-3) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.

If the Vikings can pounce on Cincinnati quickly, Minnesota will improve its chances to will leave U.S. Bank Stadium with a division title in hand.


The Bengals failed to convert a first down in the first quarter, their third straight game with zero first downs in a single quarter.

Running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined for 37 touches and 242 yards from scrimmage for the Vikings (11-3), who were given quite the reprieve on the schedule a week after their eight-game winning streak ended at Carolina in the last of three consecutive road trips. They pulled starting quarterback Case Keenum for Teddy Bridgewater, who had not played since the 2015 season after a gruesome preseason injury previous year.

Keenum was 20-of-23 passing before giving way to Teddy Bridgewater for the team's first drive of the fourth quarter. A fan favorite, he received a standing ovation from the home crowd. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Green has caught at least one touchdown pass in 51 games and has had six games with two scores.

Quarterback Andy Dalton was taken out shortly after in favor of AJ McCarron, presumably because the Bengals also considered the game out of reach and didn't want to risk Dalton getting hurt. It was his 42nd career interception, which is second to DeAngelo Hall (43) for most among active players.
