Bengals break nine-game streak without 100-yard rusher

There's been nine regular season games played by the Cincinnati Bengals since beating the Cleveland Browns 19-14 on December 23, 2007. And in all of those games, the Bengals failed to feature anyone rushing for 100 yards or more.

Jacksonville marked several first times in offensive rushing departments. Including the first 100-yard rusher, the Bengals recorded 150 yards rushing for the first time since that the second-to-last game against Cleveland in 2007. It's also the most yards gained on the ground since beating the St. Louis Rams on December 9, 2007 when the team rushed for 192 yards.

* Fitzpatrick led the team with 23 yards rushing against the Jets.
** Fitzpatrick led the team with 41 yards rushing against the Browns.

Remember the mention about the Rams? That was the last time the Bengals had two players recording 50 yards or more rushing; Rudi Johnson 92 yards, DeDe Dorsey 81 yards.

Fitzpatrick? He's only led the team rushing twice (41 yards against the Browns, 23 yards against the Jets). In fact, the only game that he's started in which he didn't finish as first or second rushing, was against the Steelers; he recorded 15 yards rushing behind Benson's 52 yards and Watson's 17 yards.
