#4. Latavius punches it in
Setting the tone for an NFL game is very important. Minnesota took the opening drive of the game all the way down the field and picked up several first downs along the way to assert their home dominance.
With the ball placed at the two yard line, the Vikings turned to their physical running back Latavius Murray to handle duties on the goal line with 10:39 left in the first quarter and the game scoreless.
Running behind fullback C.J. Ham, Murray punched right into the center of the Bengals defense, pushing forward and across the goal line for the first touchdown of the game, giving Minnesota a 7-0 lead after the Kai Forbath extra point.
