The Cincinnati Bengals are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1988-1989 season. The Bengals erased a 21-3 deficit against the Kansas City Chiefs to win a 27-24 overtime thriller. Cincinnati’s rookie kicker, Evan McPherson, connected on a 31-yard field goal in OT to win the game.

It was his fourth made field goal of the game, which sent him into the history books.

It was the third consecutive game where McPherson made four field goals. He joined Adam Vinatieri as the only kicker during the Super Bowl era NFL to make four or more field goals in three postseason games in the same postseason.

Vinatieri built his legacy kicking for the New England Patriots for the first half of Tom Brady’s historic career. He helped them win their first three Super Bowls in 2001, 2003 and 2004. Vinatieri hit the game-winning field goals as time expired in both of the first two.

McPherson made some noise earlier this week when it was announced he called his shot against the Titans in the AFC Divisional Round.

The Bengals kicker connected on four field goals in his first career playoff game during the wild card round against the Raiders. He then sank four more field goals against the Titans. Two of those were from beyond 50 yards. McPherson outdid himself, making four more and sending his team to the Super Bowl LVI.

Had any kicker done what he has done this postseason, it would be commended. But to make 12 field goals in three playoff games as a rookie is unheard of.

The Bengals await their opponent as the Rams and 49ers battle in out in the NFC Championship.
