Did Earth's rotation help the Bengals beat Seattle?

FOX19 -

Andy Dalton rallied the Bengals from a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit that helped force overtime against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. 

Mike Nugent ultimately would kick the game-winning 42-yard field goal, which hit the left upright and ricocheted through the goal posts, lifting the Bengals to a 27-24 victory over the Seahawks and helping them improve to 5-0.

But can you thank Dalton or Nugent for helping the Bengals win Sunday? According to famed astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, it was a little bit of science that helped the Bengals win. 

Tyson tweeted an explanation detailing exactly how Earth's rotation could have combined with other factors to go in the Bengals' favor:

Did you get that? Me neither.  Either way, science was partially on the Bengals' side Sunday, sorry Seattle. 

In other news, the Bengals are 5-0 for the first time since 1988, the last time they went to the Super Bowl.  

They will travel up to Buffalo to take on the Bills Sunday at 1 p.m.
