Bailey’s 50-yard field goal in the first quarter tied for his longest made field goal as a Vikings player.
The ninth-year pro is now 12-for-14 on field goals in 2019 and leads the Vikings in scoring with 59 points on the season.
It is Bailey’s fifth such honor of his career. He won three as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
The news didn’t come with a bit of humor. Vikings punter and holder Britton Colquitt jokingly said “you’re welcome pal” to Bailey on Twitter.
