The Bengals were able to gut out a win over the Jaguars in Week 9, and Jeremy Hill played a big part in carrying Cincinnati to their fifth win of the year.
The rookie running back was getting his first NFL start with Giovani Bernard injured, and boy did he come through big time. He rushed for a career-high 154 yards and two scores in a 33-23 win over the Jaguars that one just a one-possession game in the fourth quarter with Jacksonville having all of the momentum after scoring 13 straight points to cut Cincy's lead to just 26-23.
That's when Hill made not only the biggest play of the game, but what might go down as one of the defining moments of the 2014 Bengals.
Jeremy Hill: 154 rushing yards, most in a game by a Bengals player since Cedric Benson had 189 vs Bears in 2009— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 2, 2014
That was Hill's second score of the day. His first one came in the second quarter
Personally, I think he should stick with this:
