Vikes Take a Beating in Cincinnati 23 Dec 13

Linebacker Vincent Rey returned an interception 25 yards for a touchdown and Cincinnati’s defense set up another fast start yesterday, and Andy Dalton threw four touchdown passes and the Bengals pulled away to a 42-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings (4-10-1) had knocked off playoff contenders Chicago and Philadelphia in the past three weeks. Even with Adrian Peterson back from a foot injury, they couldn’t keep up.
