    Giovani Bernard leads Bengals in receiving in Wild Card loss

    Bengals running back Giovani Bernard recorded team highs in receiving Sunday with eight receptions for 46 yards in his team's 26-10 loss to the Colts in the Wild Card round. The Bengals were without their top two receiving threats, A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham, for the first-round playoff game, and their solution was for the offense to feature three running backs, with Bernard teaming with Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead to receive 28 of the team's 35 non-QB touches. Bernard also added six rushing yards on three carries in the loss. Burkhead drew the first two touches of the game, racking up 23 yards on an end-around on his only carry of the day and adding 34 yards on three receptions over the course of the game. He managed just 76 yards on 16 touches during the regular season.

Another strong contributor was tight end Ryan Hewitt, who caught three passes for 34 yards. Wideout Mohamed Sanu added a catch for four yards while tight end Kevin Brock snagged one for two yards.
