Running Back A-

The Bengals finally went back to the dual back set. Giovani Bernard proved once again why he is one of the leagues best backs this season. He had 13 carries for 72 yards and one catch for 14 yards. He was even in on the Mohamed Sanu touchdown reverse as he flipped the ball to Sanu on the end around.

Jeremy Hill looked better than his previous games this season. He ran down hill on a number of occasions instead of east and west, losing yards or gaining nothing. He had 15 rushes for 52 yards and a long of 13 yards, he only had two negative play over that time, which is little compared to the Steelers game.

Wide Receiver: A

A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, and Mohamed Sanu looked great. Marvin Jones led the Bengals wide receivers with five catches for 78 yards. Most of Marvin Jones yards came after the catch, like his 25 yard gain in the fourth, which was caught over the middle for five yards and then 20 yards after the catch.

A.J. Green continued to play for short slants and quick hooks making up yards after the catch. Green went for four catches and 53 yards. Mohamed Sanu had three catches for 25 yards but his real contribution came on an end around for a 25 yard touchdown. Brandon Tate even got a four yard catch that would have gone for 22 yards if not for being touched while trying to regain his feet after a low pass.
