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.
Uh oh there he goes! @JeremyHill33 74 yards to da house. #WhoDey pic.twitter.com/k1XuKkmp4x— Kuni Agard (@KuniAgard) October 23, 2016
This has been exactly the kind of bounceback game Hill needed after it appeared he was falling out of favor in the Bengals’ offense.
