Offensive MVP: Joe Mixon

It was pretty evident that Joe Mixon was the best player on the field for either team Sunday evening on the offensive side of the ball. At the start of the game, Mixon had trouble finding his spots and getting to the hole, but as the game went on, the consistency and rhythm of his play picked up significantly.

Zac Taylor said he wanted to rely on the run, and that’s exactly what the Cincinnati Bengals did. Mixon carried it 30 times for 121 yards and two touchdowns that sealed the win and got the Bengals going early on for their first touchdown of the day.

This is now Joe Mixon’s second consecutive two-touchdown game, and fourth straight game with one or more touchdowns. He now has nine total on the season, already setting a record for the most he’s scored in a single season. He has also put himself over 750 yards on the ground and remains right near the top of the NFL in rushing yards. Mixon has been the catalyst of the Bengals’ offense and running the ball with plenty of success.

When Mixon gets going it opens up the entire offense and makes it hard for defenses to adjust and stop this team from putting points on the board. Joe Mixon is currently having the best season so far in his career and doesn’t look like he is slowing down anytime soon.

Joe Mixon is this week’s Offensive MVP.
