The Bengals are 5-0 for the first time since in 1988 -- and the first time ever in the AFC North (which came into existence in 2002) -- thanks to a overcoming a 17-point deficit to the Seahawks that included a Mike Nugent 31-yard field goal to send the game to overtime, and later, a 42-yarder to win it.
The goal post got an assist on the game-winner, though Nugent might have sneaked the kick just inside the upright had the end zones in Paul Brown Stadium been oriented on the north-south axis.

In the N. Hemisphere, Earth’s Coriolis force deflects airborne north-south projectiles to the right. About 1/2-in per 50 yds.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) October 11, 2015
The @Bengals stadium isn’t oriented exactly North-South. And the field goal was 42-yds. Yielding a 1/3-in deflection, not 1/2— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) October 11, 2015
