Mixon rushed the ball 21 times for 88 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over Kansas City in the AFC Championship Game. He added three receptions for 27 yards.
Mixon was the only running back to get a carry out of Cincinnati's backfield, and he worked fairly effectively on the ground. His longest rush of the day went for 23 yards late in the first quarter and pushed Cincinnati into field-goal range for their first score of the game. Mixon also was a major contributor in the team's game-sealing drive in overtime, as he broke off a 13-yard run to set up a field goal three plays later. He now has topped 100 total yards in consecutive games heading into a Super Bowl matchup against either the Rams or 49ers.
