Bengals’ OT Victory Was The Result of Earth’s Rotation, According to Astrophysicist

Mike Nugent game-winning field-goal

On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, 27-24, thanks to a 42-yard field-goal by Mike Nugent. It capped off a miraculous 17-point fourth quarter comeback, but it wasn’t pretty, as Nugent’s game-winning kick clanked off the left upright before falling through the posts.

Lucky for the Bengals, they had the earth’s rotation on their side.  Allow astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson to explain:

I’m guess in the future all kickers kicking at Paul Brown Stadium should consider compensating for the earth’s rotation.
