Jeremy Hill breaks off 2 huge runs vs Browns

New, comments

Jeremy Hill hasn’t had a run of 40-plus yards since late in the 2014 season. He has two vs the Browns.

Remember Jeremy Hill?

Hill’s chest injury led to him not seeing the field much over the past two weeks, but that was just part of what’s been a rough season for him thus far.

That is, until the Browns happened.

After not having a run longer than 38 yards in the regular season in 2015, Hill broke off two runs of 40-plus yards against Cleveland. The first came on Cincinnati’s first offensive possession, where he broke off a 40-yard run to help setup a Bengals touchdown.

But Hill’s next big run was not only the biggest of the game, but one of the longest in his NFL career. It came via a 74-yard scoring in the third quarter that was his longest run since Week 16 vs the Broncos in 2014.

This has been exactly the kind of bounceback game Hill needed after it appeared he was falling out of favor in the Bengals’ offense.
