ON FOOTBALL-KICKING GAME

NEW YORK — Who needs a kicker? Apparently not the Los Angeles Rams.

Minnesota rookie Daniel Carlson twice went wide right on overtime field goals and the Vikings tied top NFC North rival Green Bay 29-29. Even though Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with five field goals, his potential winner from 52 yards went wide left as time expired in regulation. By Barry Wilner.
