Mixon rushed 18 times for 94 yards and secured five of six targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals' 34-11 win over the Lions on Sunday. He also committed a fumble but recovered.

Mixon had a tantalizing matchup in front of him and didn't disappoint, making almost as much of an impact through the air as he did on the ground. The fifth-year back was expected to take on a normal workload despite his recent ankle issues, and Mixon did indeed outpace his nearest position mate, Trayveon Williams, by 12 carries. Mixon's receiving touchdown was an impressive 40-yard scamper early in the third quarter that was partly made possible by an excellent block by Ja'Marr Chase, his first score through the air of the season. The yardage tally on the ground was Mixon's highest since Week 1's 127-yard haul in the overtime win against the Vikings, and he'll look to build on it Week 7 versus the Ravens on the road.
