WATCH: Cincinnati Bengals DB Dre Kirkpatrick Seals Win With Second Interception of the Game

When rookie defensive back Dre Kirkpatrick gave the Cincinnati Bengals a nine-point lead late in the fourth quarter Monday night the game was likely over.

That is the only thing that can explain why Peyton tossed three interceptions against the Bengals, the third one being a pick-6 courtesy of Dre Kirkpatrick.So sad Peyton.
