Joe Mixon First Running Back With 100 Yards Against Steelers in First Half Since Eddie George in 1998



Bengals running back Joe Mixon has torched the Steelers rushing defense en route to 117 yards and a touchdown in the first half alone thus far. With that in mind, Mixon will find himself in some elite company. In fact, he is making history that has not been replicated in over twenty years.

Mixon is the first running back to amass over 100 yards rushing against the Steelers in the first half since Eddie George in 1998. For Mixon and the Bengals rushing attack, they have led an offense that has yet to be stopped by the Steelers. Mixon, in particular, is simply dominating the Steelers on the ground.

The Steelers have yet to match anything the Bengals put up offensively, and the Bengals rushing attack is at the forefront of it. If the Steelers want any chance of a miraculous come back at this point, Mixon will have to be someone they stop.
