Jeremy Hill busts off 62-yard run vs. Saints (VIDEO)

Jeremy Hill has been a revelation for the Bengals, and he continued his hot play against the Saints in his New Orleans homecoming.

The former LSU standout started just his third NFL game in Week 11 against the Saints, as Giovani Bernard continued to sit out with a hip and clavicle injury.

He'll have a tough time earning his starting spot back if Hill keeps up his pace, which continued with a 97-yard effort on just 12 carries in the first half of his Week 11 game at New Orleans, which was a homecoming for the Baton Rouge Redemptorist high school alum.

Most of Hill's damage was done on the second-to-last play of the first half, where Cincinnati was just trying to run out the clock, but Hill busted out for a 62-yard run to put the Bengals in field goal range.

Mike Nugent would then kick a 42-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 13-3 lead over the Saints at halftime.
