Mixon, Bengals Hope To Go On A Run
Mixon has, although he usually saves his best for the stretch. But he believes the Bengals' quiet run game is rustling in the weeds and about to bust out after just 224 docile yards in the first four games. Mixon, in his sixth season, wears the captain's "C," for a reason. It could be the scarlet letter "D," for "Diva," but the Bengals man of good vibrations keeps bouncing.

Cincinnati Bengals Film Breakdown: Gravity and The Effect of Having Elite Wide Receiver Like Ja'Marr Chase - Sports Illustrated Cincinnati Bengals News, Analysis and More
There is a certain effect that great wide receivers have on the football field. It's comparable to elite shooters in basketball. Elite shooters are actively sought after—not only because they can hit 3-pointers, but because of the reaction of the defense. While it’s not discussed as often, this is similar to the impact of elite wide receivers in the NFL. They are also able to create openings for their teammates by shifting the defense.

Sitting at a card table hiding his hand of cards, he laughs and jokes with his compadres from the secondary and special teams. When he’s not cracking jokes at the card table, he’s grinning and laughing at his locker just a few feet away.

NFL Power Rankings, Week 5: 49ers vault back into top five, send Rams tumbling out of top 10
Bengals back? We think so! Joe Burrow passed for 287 yards and two scores, including the game-icing fourth-down TD flip to Hayden Hurst that sealed a 27-15 win over the previously undefeated Dolphins. After the victory, Burrow complimented his offensive line, a maligned unit that stepped up and kept Joey Franchise clean throughout the night (just one sack). Burrow's favorite target was -- once again -- a receiver other than Ja'Marr Chase: Tee Higgins went off for 124 yards and a touchdown on seven catches. It feels like the Bengals are back to beast status. We'll know for sure after Sunday night's showdown with the Ravens in Baltimore.

"Let's hope it's a blip," Pederson said, via the team’s official website. "I don't think it's a setback. I think it's a blip. You hate to say it, but maybe it's one of those games in the season where just nothing goes right. It happens. I never make excuses. We have to do a better job of hanging onto the football. He knows that. That's the prize possession out there. If we make the plays that were left on the field, it might be a different outcome today."
