2023 NFL season, Week 15: What We Learned from Saturday’s triple-header
A tale of two halves for Browning. After being held to three points in the first half, Jake Browning stepped things up in the second half of his third NFL start. Cincinnati’s offense managed to muster only five first downs in the first 30 minutes,
but Browning raised its game after halftime to help the Bears stage a comeback, leading the Bengals to score touchdowns on three consecutive fourth-quarter drives. . es. Tee Higgins was Browning’s favorite target during that span and he inspired everything with a TD grab on the first play of the final frame. Higgins started the game on the final drive of regulation after Browning threw a high pass near the right pylon.
Despite being pressed by a Vikings defender, Higgins turned his body and was able to throw the ball on plane while being tackled. That effort sent the Bengals into overtime, where Browning found Tyler Boyd on a 44-yard pass to put Cincy in field goal position, after which the two teams traded possessions to start OT. Evan McPherson kicked the game-winning 29-yard field goal to keep the Bengals’ postseason hopes alive as they head into Week 16 on a three-game win streak.
Vikings may have solved their QB dilemma in defeat.Making his first start since the 2021 season, Nick Mullens managed to direct a healthy offense that maintained the lead through the first three quarters by completing 26 of 33 passes for 303 yards and two touchdowns. Mullen worked with playwrights Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison and T.J. Focused on. Hockenson, a group of three players who combined for 19 catches and 258 receiving yards, two of which were scored by Addison.
Minnesota’s offense was able to move the sticks and find the end zone, which was a big difference from a unit that had scored only 15 points in the previous two games. However, a few mistakes by Mullens in the first half could have been the difference. Mullens threw two interceptions with the Vikings in scoring position. Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton scored a fumble on the first play in the second quarter, and defensive lineman B.J. Hill had a tremendous game in the second before halftime.
As Mullens was being brought down for a sack, he tried to throw him, but Hill instead took the ball into his fists, making one of the most impressive big-man interceptions of the year. Despite the loss, Mullens was able to regain his composure and make accurate passes when needed. If Mullen can consistently find his talented receivers, the Vikings can keep their playoff chances alive.
Crucial few games left for Vikings, Bengals. The NFL playoff picture in the AFC and NFC looks to be heading into an interesting Week 18. Even though the Vikings lost, Minnesota currently remains in sixth place in the NFC. Heading into Week 16, Brian Flores’ defense has kept Minnesota in the playoff race despite multiple changes at QB, with Mullen doing enough on Saturday to prevent another run.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati remains on top of the postseason standings with the win, which also keeps them as the No. 6 seed for the time being. Cincy showed the ability to persevere after a slow start, with Browning’s ability to maintain composure through Saturday’s impressive comeback win. Both teams will be able to improve their playoff chances in key divisional contests next week, when the Vikings host the Lions and the Bengals visit Pittsburgh.
