Bernard had a great game on Sunday!

Although Bengals went into Week 7 without running back Joe Mixon, Giovani Bernard filled this void nicely.

Bernard is always an important part of the Bengals offense. He is a good receiver out of the backfield and an incredible pass blocker in it.

With Mixon out, Bernard got more touches both running and receiving.

Let’s take a look at how Bernard stepped up into a larger role against the Browns.
