Dangerous Cleveland Browns rivals
Cincinnati Bengals most dangerous player No. 3 -Joe Mixon, running back
The Bengals passing game gets most of the attention and credit but Joe Mixon had a great season last year, especially considering the offensive line in front of him. In 2021, Mixon finished with 1,205 yards rushing with 13 touchdowns as well as 42 catches for 314 yards and 3 more touchdowns.
That was a career-high for Mixon in rushing yards and it was his third 1,000-yard season in his five-year NFL career. Mixon could be considered an underrated player that doesn’t get the respect that he deserves. He is a hard runner that is not afraid of contact and will break the arm tackles if you don’t wrap him up properly.
Mixon has elite-level vision and has the breakaway speed when he gets in the open field and can take it to the house when he gets the opportunity. With the upgraded offensive line in Cincinnati, Joe Mixon is looking at a great opportunity to have an even bigger season in 2022.
