'He banks it in!' Nugent's doink pushes Bengals to best start in 27 years

BY Connor Kiesel • October 11, 2015

The bounces are going the Cincinnati Bengals way so far in the 2015 season.

That was taken to a very literal place Sunday.

With time dwindling in overtime, Mike Nugent tried a 42-yard field goal to push the Bengals past the defending NFC champion Seahawks -- and had the left goalpost on his side.

If you're looking for a scientific explanation, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson provided some insight.

The win sends the Bengals to their first 5-0 start since 1988, the last time they reached the Super Bowl. They try to reach 6-0 next Sunday in Buffalo against the Bills.
