Forbath having a field (goal) day for Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) Forced by Blair Walsh's struggles to switch kickers last year, the Minnesota Vikings have their field goal tries back on track with Kai Forbath.

Those pesky extra points are, well, another matter. Forbath's career-most six field goals in as many attempts, including two from 50-plus yards, were the difference for the Vikings in their 24-16 victory over Baltimore on Sunday.

"It's fun to be a part of this," said the soft-spoken Forbath , who has made an NFL-best 32 of 33 field goals in 14 games with the Vikings since they released Walsh on Nov. 15, 2016 .
