CINCINNATI (AP) - Mike Nugent missed a 36-yard field goal attempt on the final play of overtime Sunday, leaving the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers in a 37-37 tie - the NFL's first this season.

Nothing new about the Bengals tying at home. They finished 13-13 with Philadelphia in their last overtime game at Paul Brown Stadium in 2008.

Nugent made a 42-yard field goal that put Cincinnati (3-1-1) up after the opening drive of overtime. Carolina (3-2-1) tied it on Graham Gano's 36-yarder with 2:19 left.

Andy Dalton was nearly perfect in overtime, going 8 for 9 for 87 yards with one throwaway. He led the Bengals into range to win it, but Nugent sliced his kick wide right.
